157 patients with tibial fracture and undergoing intramedullary nail fixation were randomized to have the distal locking screw insertion assisted by electromagnetic navigation (E-navigation), or placement via conventional methods. Conventional methods of screw insertion included either the free-hand technique or the radiolucent drill technique. The purpose of the study was to compare the screw ins...
