A Novel Technique for Reduction and Immobilization of Tibial Shaft Fractures: The Hammock
Journal of Orthopaedic Trauma,  Clinical Article

Konda SR et al. – Pre–“hammock” average values for fracture displacement in the lateral plane for translation and angulation were 4.9 mm and 8.7°. Post–“hammock” average values for fracture displacement in the lateral plane for the same parameters were 4.9 mm and 2.0°, respectively. These results show that this technique is able to achieve the goals of fracture reduction and immobilization in a rapid fashion when help is not available.
