I am a rising MS-4 applying to orthopedics Fall 2022. I am conducting a meta-analysis comparing postoperative outcomes between intermediate length and long cephalomedullary (intramedullary) nails for fixation of intertrochanteric fractures. Traditional intertroch fracture management has involved either short or long nails, depending on fracture stability. Little literature is available pertaining intermediate nails and there are no reviews pertaining intermediate versus long nails, hence our purpose in performing this review.
Intermediate versus Long Cephalomedullary Nails for Intertrochanteric Fractures Meta-Analysis
The current team is actively filtering through studies to include in the analysis and will soon be ready to begin data analysis and manuscript writing. We are looking for one medical students interested in orthopedics willing to help write the discussion. Experience with data analysis is unnecessary.
