The aim of the present study is to compare the outcome of middle one third femur shaft fracture managed by Kuntscher intramedullary nail and interlock intramedullary nail at level 2 and level 3 referral hospitals.
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.
This case report suggested that intraoperative positioning during Kuntscher intramedullary nail insertion can be complicated by traction injury.
(3,5-7) However, no previous case of radial nerve traction injury due to this type of intraoperative positioning during Kuntscher intramedullary nail insertion has been reported in the literature.
