Summary Annotation This book is the third volume of the "Practice of Intramedullary Locked Nails" with special focus on the recent advancement of the understanding of biology of the fracture healing of long bones, the emerging technologies which further enhancing the minimally invasiveness nature of closed treatment of fractures and the availabilities of various surgical techniques in intramedullary fixation. The application of new technology in prevention of infection and application of the intramedullary fixation of fractures in pediatric and adolescent patients are also described. The contributors of this volume are from different well known trauma centers and they are the pioneer surgeons in the development and practice of intramedullary locked nails
