Abstract

An intramedullary nail (1) is expandable along its entire length enabling it to be inserted inside a broken bone in its non-expanded form and then expanded so as to secure the bone. Such insertion can be performed without drilling into the bone and the securing of a bone using such a nail alleviates the need for subsidiary pins or nails, thus reducing operation time. Such a nail may consist of a hollow tube with broken cross section which may be expanded by forcing an insert into the break in cross section thus prising it apart. <IMAGE>
