femur compression plate / trochanteric / proximal
PFF - 155.20XX
Part of bone:
The PFF Modular Hook for treating proximal fractures of the femur provides the usual excellent stability of O’nil locking plates, but with the additional option of securing the Greater Trochanter using a modular Greater Trochanter hook.
The patented conical screw locking system creates a stable system in osteoporotic bones, when screw security can be compromised. In this system the screws act like an external fixator, rather than compressing the plate onto the bone. This important feature of O’nil locking plates helps to preserve periosteal vascularity.
The two proximal 7mm screws diverge by 6° to facilitate placement and to follow the anteversion of the femoral neck, ensuring excellent fixation in the trochanteric region. The modular Greater Trochanter hook allows excellent reduction and security of the tip of the Greater Trochanter.
Fractures of the trochanteric region, cervico-trochanteric, trochanteric-diaphyseal, multifragmented, per-trochanteric, intertrochanteric, inverted intertrochanteric or transverse fractures, or supplementary fractures of the medial cortex
Fractures of the proximal extremity of the femur combined with ipsilateral diaphyseal fractures
Fractures with presence of metastases in the proximal femur
Osteotomies of the proximal femur
Fixation of fractures in porotic bone and fixation of non-consolidated fractures or consolidation defects
