Standard
ISO 15142-2 First edition 2003-08-01 Implants for surgery - Metal intramedullary nailing systems - Part 2: Locking components
Scope/Abstract
Intramedullary nailing is a method of fixation for temporary stabilization of long bones with reduced strength due to fractures or disease or both. Medical and engineering considerations influence the design of the different devices and the choice of a device for a particular clinical situation.

This part of ISO 15142 addresses the locking components used for lockable metal intramedullary nails. Because of the wide variety of the devices, classification of the locking components is provided.

Nails are often, but not always, removed when they have completed their intended purpose of temporary stabilization.
