Preliminary results of new elastic mini-nail in the distal radius fractures. First 83 cases of the nail-o-flex nail
The distal radius fracture is a common injury in old persons. His treatment remains a critical challenge because of number of cases, the final cost of the procedure, the level of X-rays irradiation and a demanding technic of fixation in osteoporotic bone. The entire closed procedure requires a strict percutaneous nailing. This offers advantages in terms of post-operative pain, per-operative irradiation and cost. The main problem was so far the ability to insure a stable reduction in time. This point is discussed with the introduction of the “Nail-oflex®” nail. A continuous series of 83 patients is introduced.
