Technical Problems of Trigen Intertan Insertion in Indian Population: How to Overcome Them?
Current Journal of Applied Science and Technology,
In this technical note, we are going to discuss the technical problems( based on experience with 5 patients) that we have faced during fixation of inter trochanteric fractures while using the intramedullary nailing system - The TRIGEN INTERTAN nail (Smith & Nephew, Memphis, Tennessee), in Indian subjects.
- Trigen Intertan insertion
- intramedullary nailing system
- proximal femur
