Treatment of tibial shaft fractures by percutaneous Kuntscher
nailing: technical difficulties and a review of 50 consecutive cases.
The femur was reconstructed with a 255 mm x 11 mm Kuntscher
nail reinforced by a strut allograft [Figure 1]c and [Figure 1]d.
He described an obturator dislocation associated with a femur shaft fracture managed by internal fixation of the femur with a Kuntscher
nail followed by closed manipulative reduction of hip.
3] Other described methods include using the modified Kuntscher
reaming guide; Ender's nail; hand reamer; femoral head cork screw extractor; smaller nail impaction; grasping device, such as forceps; or multiple guide wires wedged into the nail cavity.

Intramedullary (IM) nails, often called rods, were invented by Gerhard Kuntscher
in World War II-era Germany.
Specifically designed Kuntscher
nails were made to meet the anterior convexity and the size of the medullary canal of the femora of goats.
This paper reports a rare case of transient radial and axillary nerves palsy related to intraoperative right lateral positioning for Kuntscher
intramedullary nail insertion that caused postural cervical traction.
Non-union of' tibia treated with Kuntscher
11) By the late 1940s, Kuntscher
had begun to abandon use of the V-shaped nail design in favor of another Kuntscher
design, the cloverleaf nail.
