A Prospective Case - Control Trial of a Distal Targeting System for Cephalomedullary Nails as Part of Surgical Repair of Hip and Femoral Shaft Fractures

Brief description of study

The purpose of the study is to compare two methods of standard of care operative procedure to repair hip and femoral shaft fractures: one involves a ‘free-hand’ method, another involves use of an FDA approved device, called the Stryker Distal Targeting System. Collected data will be used to evaluate the device maker’s claim that it can reduce the amount of x-rays taken during this type of procedure. Additionally, the study will verify if use of this device can reduce surgery time.
