Monitoring and Controlling Intramedullary Pressure Increase in Long Bone Instrumentation: A Study on Sheep

Smith, Paul; Leditschke, Isabel; McMahon, Damien; Sample, Roxanne; Perriman, Diana; Prins, Anne; Bruessel, Thomas; Li, Rachel


Intramedullary reamed nailing causes elevation in intramedullary pressure and extravazation of intramedullary contents into the venous blood system. This study investigated the effect of an intramedullary suction system, recently developed in our laboratory, on the pressure and fat extravazation in isolated bovine bone and a sheep model. During reaming, the pressure with and without suction was recorded at each step of the procedure. Hemodynamic parameters of mean arterial blood pressure,...[Show more]
