This article dealt with influence of four factors (cutting speed, feed rate, reverse feed and eccentricity) on cylindricty, surface roughness and real diameter of reamed hole.
* eccentricity did not influence the real diameter of reamed hole.
Influence of tool tip eccentricity on real diameter of reamed hole Measured diameter Eccentricity [mm] O.Nr.
The average diameter of the nail in reamed group was 11.2mm (range 10-12) and in unreamed group was 9.5mm (range 9-11).
In reamed group 21.3% of the patients (13 patients) had superficial infection and this number was 8.6% (5 patients) in unreamed group with significant difference (P value= 0.01).
Mean union time was 27.9 weeks in reamed and 30.18 weeks in unreamed group (Fig.2) without significant difference (P value= 0.08).
Although disappointing results has been reported after the use of reamed interlocking nailing for the treatment of open tibial fractures5, the use of this device continued in treating Gustilo types I,II.III open tibial fractures with satisfactory results.
The earlier studies of interlocking nailing in open tibial fractures included the experience with unreamed nails.6,18,19 Keating et al20 in 1997 compared the results of interlocking nailing of the open tibial fractures treated by unreamed and reamed nailing and reported similar results in two groups although more common screw breakage were seen in unreamed group.
One of these studies12 in a randomized clinical trial with 3.8 year follow up concludes that unreamed tibial nails may be associated with higher rate of complications, and malunion compared with reamed nailing and in the other,21 the authors conclude that UTN does have a high complication rate and, they suggest early dynamization or exchange nailing to hasten union and prevent screw breakage.
Different clinical results and controversies motivated us to perform this randomized clinical trial to compare the results of unreamed and reamed nailing in open tibial fractures.
The length of the operation is more in reamed group because of the time required for canal reaming.
More screw breakage in unreamed group can be due to smaller nail diameter (9.5 mm) and more stress applied on locking screws compared with larger diameter (11.2 mm) in reamed group.
Unlike earlier studies18-20, the results of reamed and unreamed nailing are seen to be almost comparable with minor differences and this can be due to the design of the modern nails.
By comparing the results of different types of nailing in open tibial fractures, both reamed and unreamed nailing can be used in open types I, II, III tibial fractures with quite similar results.
