This is the latest version of this eprint.


We describe the use of proximal stacked wires for the removal of an intramedullary nail in the context of difficult extraction and failed attempts by conventional methods. This percutaneous technique is particularly useful for the extraction of narrow cannulated or solid intramedullary nails after failure of removal by extraction bolt devices.
