Estudio clínico-radiológico de la osteosíntesis con clavo gamma en fracturas trocantéricas

Abstract
Two hundred twenty two fractures of the trochanteric area treated with the gamma standard nail were evaluated retrospectively. The clinical outcome was assessed keeping in mind the functional result and complications. The type of implant, stability impression, anomalies of the assembly and valgus-varus angle were analyzed in order to study their repercussions in the consolidation. This series is compared with others in the literature with the same implant (gamma nail) and with others using other systems of osteosintesys, like DHS and Ender's nails. We conclued that with a purified technique the gamma standard nail is an ideal system for osteosinthesys of unstable fractures of the trochanteric area.
