CarboFix "Piccolo" Humerus Nails
Made of continuous carbon fibers reinforced polymer.
Two Humérus nails are available
-Standard Humérus nail with 5° bending at its proximal end.
-Proximal Humérus Nail with four way locking at the proximal end. The screw holes are threaded for enhanced screw fixation.
The nail cap is made of composite material and is radiolucent. Radiopaque markers around the drill holes and along the nails' length axis facilitate positioning and drilling.
CarboFix Humérus nails are FDA cleared and CE marked
•Radiolucent: Superior fracture imaging.
•Unparalleled fatigue strength.
•Improved modulus of elasticity.
•No artifacts in CT & MRI due to the nail.
•Advantageous in pathological fractures
Proximal Screws: 04.5mm Distal Screws: 04.0mm
CarboFix nails, plates, and pedicle screws are made of continuous carbon fibers reinforced polymer.
The Polymer (PEEK) adhere the fibers together.
The continuous carbon fibers are layered in a unidirectional, longitudinal orientation, as well as in helical / diagonal orientation.
The material makes the CarboFix implants radiolucent, which is beneficial during surgery and follow up.
This composite material enables MRI & CT scan with no, or minimal artifacts for better soft tissue visualization. The material enables radiation therapy with no backscatters.
