Functional outcome and persistent disability after isolated fracture of the femur

Location: http://www.cma.ca/multimedia/staticContent/HTML/N0/l2/cjs/vol-51/issue-5/pdf/pg366.pdf

The purpose of this study was to assess the functional outcome and causes of persistent disability in patients with isolated femoral shaft fractures treated at an academic level-1 trauma centre.
Conclusion: Recovery from femur fractures occurs most rapidly in the first 6months after injury. Residual deficits in functional out- come were...

Muscle Function and Functional Outcome after Standard Antegrade Reamed Intramedullary Nailing of Isolated Femoral Shaft Fractures

Location: http://www.hwbf.org/ota/am/ota04/otapo/OTP04076.htm

OTA Poster 2004: The purpose of this study was to document the hip abductor muscle strength following standard antegrade intramedullary nailing by using two different objective measures
Conclusions: Antegrade reamed interlocking intramedullary nailing of femoral shaft fractures through a standard piriformis fossa starting point is not associated with any significant...

Pulmonary Gas Exchange during Intramedullary Fixation of Femoral Shaft Fractures

Location: http://www.hwbf.org/ota/am/ota98/otapa/OTA98504.htm

OTA Paper 1998: This study was undertaken to determine if intramedullary femoral nailing produces immediate worsening of pulmonary gas exchange in patients with femoral shaft fractures.
Conclusion: The process of femoral nailing with and without reaming does not appear to produce significant pulmonary marrow element emboli to alter pulmonary gas exchange,...

Trochanteric Nail Insertion for Femoral Shaft Fractures

Location: http://www.hwbf.org/ota/am/ota02/otapa/OTA02854.htm

The Old Begets the New: Trochanteric Nail Insertion for Femoral Shaft Fractures, Revisited
Purpose : Intramedullary (IM) nailing of femoral shaft fractures through a trochanteric starting point with the patient in a lateral decubitus position was popularized in the 1940s by G. Kuntscher. Large diameter nails (without locks) were used to obtain an interference...

Trochanteric vs Pirformis Entry Portal for the Treatment of Femoral Shaft Fractures

Location: http://www.hwbf.org/ota/am/ota04/otapa/OTA04950.htm

OTA paper 2004: The purpose of this study was to compare results of femoral shaft fracture treatment with use of a nail designed specifically for trochanteric entry, Trigen TAN, to results with use of an identical nail without a trochanteric bend inserted through the piriformis fossa, Trigen FAN.
