Abstract

Placement of the distal interlocking screw is the most difficult part in all intramedullary nail interlocking screw systems. The difficulties during the surgery and complications postoperatively encountered, led us to innovate this method to overcome the difficulties of placement of distal screws accurately. Application of our method made location of the distal slots easier in the prospective study and also reduced the operation time without the use of image intensifier.
