Stabilisation of femoral non-union using
Poller (Blocking) screws
Advanced Technique for Antegrade Femoral Nail
X-rays below together with CT scan images suggest femoral shaft non-union. Despite self dynamisation it went the non-union. Apart from additional pain, self dynamisation did not add anything to the fracture union. Surprised?
How I use Poller (Blocking) screws in antegrade nailing of femur is described below. If you have any questions please email me.
X-rays after the fixation are below where no proper reaming was done and also nail was replaced by a thinner nail then the one removed. Quite the opposite from the standard teaching.
And after four months of walking ....
After further 3 months, 7 months altogether I believe I understand it.
1 year after the non-union surgery.
