Characteristics of tibial-, femoral-, retrograde femoral nailing
The development of the three nails had the important aspect to make one complex surgical instrument set suitable for their implantation. This is a real "3-in-1" solution which is particularly advantageous in case of surgical treatment of polytraumatized patients.
This complex system enables the surgical treatment of wide indication area, with the same surgical technology.
Distal aiming device helps the accurate locking in the distal holes. The tools of the mechanical distal aiming and following the careful aiming steps together provide very good aiming accuracy.
Design of the implants
The anatomical bend and the cannulated design of the tibial nail provide good fit and easy implantation. The oval hole of the proximal end allows also a dynamic fracture fixation. AP- and lateral holes are available for the distal locking.
The wide diameter range of the femoral nail provides large adaptability. The four-position locking possibility in the upper third makes the nail suitable for various indications. For the proximal condyle locking, in addition to the usual locking hole sizes, 6.5 mm locking screw is also available.
The retrograde femoral nail is anatomically curved. Distal condyle locking can happen in four positions, with 4,9mm and 6.5 mm screws. Proximal locking is possible in two positions, with 4.9-mm screws.
