    Intramedullary Nailing of Right Femur Fra ANS Medical Animation This 3d medical animation features a dramatic surgical overview during the . This practice describes a method for static bend and torsion testing of intramedullary rods for the determination of bending strength, bending rigidity, and torsional rigidity. The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as the standard. This standard may involve hazardous materials, operations, and equipment.

    Osteogenesis imperfecta (OI, or Brittle Bone Disease) is a clinically and genetically heterogeneous group of heritable disorders of connective tissue. The incidence of forms recognizable at birth is 1/, The hallmark feature of OI is bone fragility, with susceptibility to fracture from minimal trauma, as well as bone deformity and growth deficiency.   Generally speaking, fracture injuries to the femoral shaft have been primarily treated (per current acceptable methods) with various intramedullary rods or nails. An intramedullary rod is an elongated member which is introduced to and resides in the marrow of the femur for the purpose of stabilizing the fractured femoral shaft.

An intramedullary (IM) rod can be used to realign and stabilize the femur after a fracture. It is one of the most common treatments for a femur shaft fracture and involves reconnecting the two ends of the bone and holding them in place with the metal rod. The rod is held in place with screws placed above and below the fracture.

Lewis E. Zionts, Richard E. Bowen, in Osteogenesis Imperfecta, Selection of Implant. Intramedullary rods have been used for more than 50 years to minimize fracture and correct deformity in children with OI. The implant stabilizes the bone as well as sharing the load across the fracture or osteotomy site thus facilitating union.

S aureus also causes invasive infections with bacteremia associated with foreign bodies, including intravascular catheters or grafts, peritoneal catheters, cerebrospinal fluid shunts, spinal instrumentation or intramedullary rods, pressure equalization tubes, pacemakers and other intracardiac devices, and prosthetic joints.

Intramedullary rodding can be performed once there are symptomatic fractures. The entry portal of the femur is situated at the tip of the greater trochanter. For the tibia, the entry portal is.

I would suggest using CPT Per the CPT book (pg ), "Open treatment is used when the fractured bone is either: 1) surgically opened (exposed to the external environment) and the fracture (bone ends) visualized and internal fixation may be used; or 2) the fractured bone is opened remote from the fracture site in order to insert an intramedullary nail.

Intramedullary is a medical term meaning the inside of a bone. Examples include intramedullary rods used to treat bone fractures in orthopedic surgery and intramedullary tumors occurring in some forms of cancer or benign tumors such as an enchondroma.

General Product Information - (Show below) - (Hide below). Intramedullary nails, also called intramedullary rods, are used in the medullary cavity of bone.

Intramedullary nails are used to treat fractures of long bones in the body. These nails are traditionally triangular or V-shaped, with a cross-section. In book: Intramedullary Limb Lengthening (pp) nails that utilize telescopic rods with internal ratchet mechanisms that elongate the bone.

Stabilization of fracture fragments using open surgical procedures to place devices, such as plate-and-screw, intramedullary rods, wires, and pins and nails to reduce displacement and promote healing.

Rods of mm, mm, and mm diameter can be joined in any combination to accommodate the dissimilar intramedullary canal diameters. The conical press-fit joint is designed with a 4° taper with equilaterally spaced locking screws to prevent distraction and : James R.

Intramedullary fixation is newer and has become popular for the treatment of pertrochanteric fractures, increasing from 3% of all cases in to 67% in in the United States. 7 Cited by: Intramedullary Fixation of the Left Femur exh Medical Exhibit This medical illustration demonstrates the post-operative condition of a left femur fracture Last Updated: May 3, Intramedullary nails also are known as intramedullary rods, are metallic rods inserted in the medullary cavity.

Apart from correction of birth deformities, intramedullary nails are also used in the treatment of diaphyseal fracture of the femur, humerus and tibia, femoral neck fracture, intertrochanteric, subtrochanteric, combination fractures. These are metal rods, when inserted into the intramedullary canal; act as an immobilization device to hold the ends of the fractured bone.

Different kinds of nails are designed to suit different requirements. System of intramedullary nails that is designed to help restore the shape of the fractured long bone to its natural, pre-injured state.

"These intramedullary rods or nails are placed inside the intramedullary canal (marrow cavity) of long bones like the femur or tibia to stabilize fractures of these bones until they heal."
