I found a new term in THIS IS HOW IT ALWAYS IS by Laurie Frankel.
1. intramedullary nail – “Lacking an intramedullary nail — she knew enought not to even ask for that one, not that she could have placed it without an X-ray anyway — she stabilized the leg with fabric wrap, a section of branch, and plates made of coconut shells.”
I’m rather glad I’ve had no reason to know this term An intramedullary nail is a metal rod forced into the medullary cavity of a bone. The medullary cavity is the central cavity of bone shafts where red bone marrow and/or yellow bone marrow is stored.
