Zhao X et al. – Despite the theoretically better design of TAN and the healing of most fractures and good activity at last follow–up, poor reduction and coxa vara caused by insertion of the nail could not be completely avoided, and the design of the distal part of the nail had the potential to cause femoral shaft fracture. Future improvements are necessary to enable the use of this system in Asians.
