"Yes, I agree that your nail radiograph is a Smith Petersen nail. It was a tri-flanged nail with a threaded female aperture in the distal end for the driving/extraction device and later for the attachment of a side plate. I cannot recall if all versions were cannulated." John Denton, MD, Professor and Associate Dean, New York Medical College, Jamaica, NY, USA.
