Research Facts
The medullary nail is used for stabilizing fractured femurs; Gerhart Kuntscher developed them in 1938 from stainless steel and vitallium; this advanced the treatment of long bone (femur and tibia) fractures and was a breakthrough development in 1939 -- just before WW II; allied pilots who were shot down in Europe and broke their femurs were treated with this type of rod; some escaped and brought the technology back; German pilots were often back flying in six weeks with this type of treatment for femoral fractures; the slot at the one end was used to knock in and pull out the nail.
