CHARFIX2 humeral nail is a next generation nail that merges the features of reconstructive and compression nail.
Increased number of holes, their relocation towards the end of the nail and possibility of inserting the locking elements at the angle other than perpendicular to the nail axis – all these significantly broaden the range of indications for use.
humerus shaft fractures;
proximal humerus fractures;
malunion or non-union treated with other methods.
INTRAMEDULLARY OSTEOSYNTHESIS OF HUMERUS, consistsof:• implants (intramedullary nail, locking screws, end cap or compression screw),• instrument set for implantation and extraction after finishedtreatment,• surgical technique.Intramedullary osteosynthesis of humeral bone provides stable fixation of fractured humeral shaft and is recommended in the fol-lowingcases:• multi–fragmental shaft fractures • severe closed or open (I grade) fracture patterns, • pathological fractures, malunion or nonunion of shaft fractures previously treated with othermethods.Reconstruction Humeral Nail is availablein:• diameter 6-14mm (in 1mm increments),• size 180-340mm,• solid orcannulated,• made of titaniumalloy.Nail design enables implantation into both right and left limb. There are 6 holes in the proximal part that allow for fixation of damaged fragments of humeral head. Threaded locking holes in the proximal part allow for optional locking byusing:• locking screw 3.0or4.0;• locking screw 4.5, which by anchoring in the nail prevents angle displacement and movement of fractured fragments
