PFN
Ортопедия и травматология Отправлено Alexander Chelnokov 12 Апрель 2004, 23:41
Дорогие коллеги, Не подскажет ли кто, для чего АО-шный PFN имеет латеральный изгиб?
Чем было бы хуже, если бы он вводился через грушевидную ямку, как реконструкционные гвозди? Какие выгоды дает более латеральное введение? Заранее спасибо.

    Dear Alex,
    The curve in the frontal plane is obviously to be able to introduce the nail
    thro the tip of the trochanter. Though you may find it easy to enter the pyriformis fossa, for others entry thro the troch is easier. That is the reason. Regards

      t seems to me there is no difference, both approaches are equal -
      either through the troch or the piriformis fossa. Do you think this is
      the only reason? Maybe insertion through the trochanter provides any
      more benefits comparatively to the fossa?

        Dear Alex,
        According to recent AO literature, the entry through the pyriformis fossa risks damage to the blood supply of the femoral neck and head. Personally, I am not convinced that this is the real reason for the change of entry point in the new AO nails (example cannulated femur nail). Many surgeons (including me), prefer the trochanter as an entry point for the ease of getting it right, ease of doing a small incision procedure.
        Cannulated nails also give one the comfort of using a guide wire, and many nails with cannulation can be used reamed or unreamed, thereby fulfilling the needs of the other great controversy in nailing! Therefore, perhaps, the entry point has been changed due to the preference of the surgeons! If the trochanter is the entry point an antecurvature is definitely helpful to ease insertion. Also perhaps a lateralisation curve, that is from medial to lateral.

          AFAIK this is mostly related to children/adolescents?

          GT> trochanter as an entry point for the ease of getting

          How does it depend on the point of insertion?

          GT> Cannulated nails also give one the comfort of using a

          Either way allows to use the guide wire and cannulated nails, doesn't it?

          GT> Also perhaps a lateralisation curve, that is from medial to
          GT> lateral.

          This is what i asked initially - i see that the curve intended for insertion through the trochanter, and try to realize why change the point from the piriformis to the troch...

            According to recent AO literature this is true also for adults.

            GT>> it right, ease of doing a small incision procedure.

            AC> How does it depend on the point of insertion?

            Some surgeons (me included) feel it is easier because the trochanter is so easy to palpate, also the insertion device is away from the bulk of the gluteus (very large sometimes in fat people!).

            GT>> Cannulated nails also give one the comfort of using a
            GT>> guide wire, and many nails with cannulation can be

            AC> Either way allows to use the guide wire and cannulated nails, doesn't
            it?

            This sentence was in relation to the AO unreamed nail which is solid, not cannulated.

            GT>> Also perhaps a lateralisation curve, that is from medial to
            GT>> lateral.

            AC> This is what i asked initially - i see that the curve intended for insertion through the trochanter, and try to realize why change the point from the piriformis to the troch...

            I thought I gave the AO's reasons for this at first. The rest of the mail was some random thoughts on nail design.
