28 patients scheduled to receive reamed, statically locked intramedullary nailing of a femoral shaft fracture were randomly assigned into 1 of 2 groups to test the effect of the Reamer-Irrigator-Aspirator (RIA) device on the quantity of marrow debris formed during the reaming process. The use of the RIA device during intramedullary nailing was compared to nailing completed with standard reamers. R...
