Abstract

Summary:

The authors present a modified telescopic nailing technique for deformity and fracture treatment in children with osteogenesis imperfecta. Because a threaded portion of the solid nail component can be screwed into cancellous epiphyseal bone without additional arthrotomy, the morbidity associated with nailing is lower than the morbidity associated with conventional techniques.
