Placing femoral intramedullary nails in severely bowed femurs.

Abstract

The authors describe a novel technique of anterograde femoral intramedullary nail fixation for hip fracture using the starting guide pin as a blocking screw. This cost-effective technique uses fluoroscopic radiography to ensure the guidewire is within the posterior aspect of the femur on a lateral view, thereby minimizing the risk of anterior cortical femoral fractures.
