FIN - Femur Intramedullary Nail
The Femoral Intramedullary Nail aims to eliminate the disadvantages of the existing locking intramedullary fixation methods that are being used with a multiple locking system.
This nail is produced for all types of femur fractures except femur head fractures with the multifunctional system.
Femur nail aims;
To use the same nail for both right and left femur, antegrade and retrograde nailing applications,
To decrease the numbers of the surgical devices which will be used,
To insert and extract easily and so to decrease the operation time,
To be capable of controlled compression,
To perform the locking and secure multi-planner stability in both ends easily and eliminate the screw migration on the ends,
To eliminate the need of external support materials and to perform intramedullary fixation, which allows patients for early mobilization.
For proximal locking, Ø 6.5 mm cannulated screws are used.
80 mm proximal part of nails has two different diameters as Ø 12, Ø 13 mm.
The diameters of distal part are Ø 8 mm and Ø 9 mm for Ø 12 mm proximal diameter nails.
For Ø 13 mm proximal diameter nails, the diameters of distal parts are Ø 10 mm, Ø 11 mm, Ø 12 mm and Ø 13 mm.
The nail is compatible for right and left femur and could be inserted both antegrade and retrograde.
Biocompatibility and uniform flexibility with the bone structure by titanium material.
On the sagittal plane, the curve of the nail axle has 150-200 cm radius and compatible for the femur anatomics.
For distal locking r Ø 10, 11, 12, 13 mm nails, Ø 5 mm cortex screws are used.
For Ø 8 ve 9 mm nails, Ø 4.5 mm cortex screws are used.
The Femoral Intramedullary Nail is used for all of the femoral fractures (except femoral head fractures),
Open, closed, simple, comminuted, segmental fractures,
Collum femoris (femoral neck) fractures,
Trochanteric - Subtrochanteric femoral fractures,
Condylar - intercondylar fractures,
Ipsilateral multiple femoral fractures,
In the events of malunion or nonunion (pseudoarthrosis),
Osteotomies for shortening,
Osteotomies for lengthening (can be combined with external fixation).
