Main description:

This book focuses on the internal fixation of long bones by using intramedullary locked nails in a closed technique. Intramedullary fixation fulfils the biological requirements for fracture healing and minimises surgical trauma. The text illustrates the use and relevance of this technique in orthopaedic and trauma surgery including reconstructive surgery, covering the basic scientific principles of reaming and locking as well as basic and advanced surgical techniques. Prevention of complications and complication management are also discussed in detail, making it an ideal text for those with an interest in the proper use the techniques described.

From the reviews:

"This two-volume book … constitutes an indispensable work to whom is interested in intra-medullary locked-nailing. The first volume is dedicated to the basic sciences and standard techniques as recommended by the International Association for Dynamic Osteosynthesis (IADO). … The second work is dedicated to the more special techniques which are the femoral diaphyseal fractures … the femoral distal fractures, the open fractures. … One must congratulate the authors for having organized in an efficient way the spreading of this method, which revolutionized the prognosis." (Pierre Kehr, European Journal of Orthopaedic Surgery & Traumatology, Vol. 13 (3), 2003)
