Orthopedic surgeon inserts the nail in the marrow cavity of injured bone through the small skin incision, then locks it in appropriate position.

Locking means inserting the screws (after previous skin incisions) in the respective holes and at a proper angle, which fasten the implant and create an internal rail for fracture stabilization.

The procedure is carried out under the control of X-rays.
