MALROTATION OF THE FEMORAL SHAFT FRACTURE AFTER CLOSED INTRAMEDULLARY NAILING; REVIEW ARTICLE
Abdirahman Ahmed Osman and Zheng Qiang*
Intramedullary nailing of femoral shaft fracture can in some cases result in incidental malalignment. Malrotation is the foremost common cause of deformation, but it is beneath recognized, in portion since of the trouble in precisely evaluating turn as well as the variety that exists in typical life structures. The results of femoral malrotation are not totally caught on. Be that as it may, introductory biomechanical considers recommend that it causes a significant change in stack bearing within the influenced limit. Clinical examination, fluoroscopy, and ultrasonography are valuable in measuring femoral rotational alignment intraoperatively and postoperatively. CT is valuable within the distinguishing proof of the degree of malrotation and in surgical arranging.
