This paper describes two different techniques for removal of broken Precice Stryde intramedullary bone lengthening nails, which, unlike trauma nails, are solid containing mechanical components. Consequently, surgeons face unique challenges when these implants brake within medullary canal. Here, we present our surgical approach for removal of three broken implants. In one patient (46 kg), both Ø10 mm femoral Stryde implants (max. weight allowance 68 kg) broke through the proximal locking screw hole preoperatively on the right side and intraoperatively on the left side (413 and 504 days after index surgery, respectively). The third Ø11.5 femoral nail broke through the area containing the magnet (55 kg patient, 325 days after index surgery). Level of evidence: IV.
