Abstract

Abstract A method of removing a short distal fragment of a fractured intramedullary nail, using impacted olive-tipped guide wires, is described. We have used this technique with success when there has been a very short segment of nail left distally. This method gives improved grip and control of alignment of the nail fragment during extraction.
