  • tibial stress fractures

    We recently had a discussion in fracture conference regarding tibial stress
    fractures. The questions raised were:

    1. How long after removal of a tibial nail would you allow a person to
    return to contact sports?

    2. How long does the stress shielding effect of the nail last?

    3. How do the answers differ for statically and dynamically locked nails?

    Most would not remove nail but we were assuming the nail had to be removed.
    If you know of any good literature, the info would be appreciated.

    Thanks in advance. I will summarize the results.
