The unique AO/ASIF Instrumentation handbook awarded a concise and entire description of the AO tools. Thoughtfully constructed through Fridolin Sequin and Rigmor Tex­ hammar, the guide mentioned in a transparent type the aim and care of a few of the AO tools which are dealt with by way of the working room employees. One vital function of the 1st variation used to be a close record of the tools required for the extra universal operative strategies for treating fractures. Fridolin Sequin was once well-suited to writer the 1st version: his 15 years of expertise as a technical engineer for the AO gave him in-depth wisdom of AO tools, and he drew at the medical wisdom of Rigmor Texhammar, a expert and di­ rector of the AO classes for nurses. Its unique function of com­ bining a column of textual content with a column of illustrations intended the handbook speedy turned permitted as a typical. through 1981, trans­ lations can be present in English, French, Spanish, and Italian. no longer strangely, the guide used to be very popular.

Bone surface resorption is then absent. 1974). Interlocking Nail: A nail provides some degree of stability mainly by its (flexural) stiffness. Since a conventional nail allows the fragments to slide along the nail, the fracture must therefore provide a solid support against shortening. For the treatment of complex fractures, the nail can be interlocked to prevent shortening and rotation. Lag Screw: The lag screw produces interfragmental compression by compressing the bone under the screw head against the fragment in which the screw threads are anchored.

Lag Screw: The lag screw produces interfragmental compression by compressing the bone under the screw head against the fragment in which the screw threads are anchored.

The plate is able to resist very large amounts of tensile force, so that the bone in turn can best resist compressive load. Vascularity: A tissue is vascularised if it contains blood vessels connected to the main circulatory system. Blood vessels may be shut off temporarily from the circulatory system. We consider a tissue to be nonvascular if either there are no vessels, as in cartilage, or the vessels present are not functioning, for example obliterated by thrombosis. Wedge Fracture: Fracture with a third fragment in which there is some direct contact between the main fragments after reduction.
