Extraction of intramedullary nails by proximal stacked wire technique.
MetadataShow full item record
We describe the use of proximal stacked wires for the removal of an intramedullary nail in the context of difficult extraction and failed attempts by conventional methods. This percutaneous technique is particularly useful for the extraction of narrow cannulated or solid intramedullary nails after failure of removal by extraction bolt devices.
