At the end we have the prediction model of reamed hole cylindricity converted to the real factors value:
From analysis of regression model we can say that cutting speed as independent factor does not have significant influence (at statistical significance level 5%) on the reamed hole cylindricity.
Machined surface of reamed hole is possible to consider as homogeneous.
previous experiment did not prove the influence of eccentricity on cylindricity and surface roughness of reamed hole.
Reamed medullary debris has a greater enrichment in mesenchymal stem cells than the iliac crest bone graft on the basis of both greater expression of specific human mesenchymal stem cell markers such as CD146 [36] and greater expression of BMP receptors.
The reamed debris was pushed into the canal and wasted or the reamed debris stuck to the reamers and wasted or the reamed debris was pasted along the femoral canal and wasted in previous techniques of reducing the femoral shaft fracture first and then serial reaming of the femur.
Reamed intramedullary nailing of the femur: 551 cases.
C-Arm Image Showing Reamed Material at Fracture Site
Sixty-one patients underwent reamed and Fifty-eight patients underwent unreamed nailing.
In reamed group 35% of the fractures involved right side and 65% involved left side and in unreamed group this proportion was 36% and 64% respectively.
The most common types of open fracture according to Gustilo-Anderson classification in reamed and unreamed group were II and IIIA respectively.
In reamed group 36% of the patients were operated before 24 hours 64% after 24 hours of the fracture and in unreamed group these numbers were 40% and 60% respectively.
