    proximal

Description

Features
Increased rotational stability
The shape of the blade leads to improved rotational stability of the femoral head-neck fragment, which is vital for reducing the risk of cut-out, delayed union and varus angulation ian unstable trochanteric fractures.
Better anchorage in the femoral head
The specially designed tip of the blade allows for compaction of the bone when the blade is inserted. This compaction leads to improved anchorage of the implant in the femoral head, which is beneficial especially in osteoporotic bone.
Increased support surface
The weight-bearing surface of the DHS Blade is greater compared to the surface of the conventional DHS Screw and can therefore take greater loads. A larger surface means less pressure from the implant onto the bone and less risk for cut-out.
Less cut-out
Better rotational stability, better anchorage in the femoral head and an increased support surface result in a lower risk of cut-out.less pressure from the implant onto the bo
Less cut-out
Better rotational stability, better anchorage in the fémoral head and an increased support surface resuit in a lower risk of cut-out.less pressure from the implant onto the bone and less risk for cut-out.
Indication
•Pertrochanteric fractures of type 31-A1 and 31-A2.
•Intertrochanteric fractures of type 31-A3.
•Basilar neck fractures 31.
