Doctor: HelloThank you for posting your query on ATD.I have gone through your query and understand your concern. Removal o f one screw leads to dynamization of nail in which two fracture ends come together as another interlocking screw have broader(dynamic) which will allow collapse of fracture fragments together promoting healing.Hope your query got answered.Wishing you a good health.Take care.
