Intramedullary nailing is a method of internal fixation that is confined to the major long bones, e.g. femur, tibia, humerus. Nailing is a less invasive procedure, requiring a smaller incision than open fixation and is currently very popular in orthopaedic surgery. The book gathers all of the various nails together into one source, and offers information on the pitfalls of the different nails. The organization starts with the importance of basic science, goes through anatomy and finally into the clinical importance of the nail. Coverage is specific to IM and the rapidly changing techniques and hardware, and nine new chapters are included addressing the latest techniques and hardware. There is also material on complications.
