1a); bipolar retrograde FIN should be reserved for some fractures of the proximal one-fourth of the tibia (Fig. 1b). Humeral fractures are preferably treated by unipolar retrograde FIN, using a lateral supraepicondylar approach (Fig. 2b), although some authors use a bipolar FIN with a medial and a lateral nail [2]. As regards both-bone forearm fractures, a combined antegrade (ulnar)/ retrograde (radial) FIN with one nail in each bone is unquestionably the easiest method (Fig. 2c), although some surgeons suggested P.
