Abstract

The authors demonstrated there were no statistically significant differences between the union and complication rate when comparing these types of internal and external bone stimulation in this patient population. Consideration of these results may help guide physicians when considering bone stimulation as an adjunct to TTC fusions with a retrograde intramedullary nail.
