Can the fracture be distracted by tapping in the GANNET nail?

No, the fracture will not be distracted or disimpacted by tapping in the GANNET, because the diameter of the cannulated drill relative to the outer core diameter of the GANNET nail is selected as such that no distraction of the fracture can occur even in high density bone. This is also confirmed by laboratorium push-in tests using high density saw bone.
