Radius Intamedullary Nail
The treatment goal for diaphyseal forearm fractures in adults is to regain axial and rotational stability. Plate osteosynthesis is the most commanly used technique for the treatment of diaphyseal forearm fractures in adults. However, the use of interlocking intramedullary nail (IMN) has the theoretical advantage of using closed insertion techniques, with decrease soft-tissue disruption and preservation of extramedullary vascular supply. The new and different design interlocking intramedullary nails (RIN and Ulna Nail) in the surgical treatment of forearm fractures have been designed and manufactured by TST.
In the region covering from 2 cm distal of the proximal joint surface of the radius to the proximal of the distal radio-ulnar joint;
For all radial fractures,
For malunion or nonunion (pseudoarthrosis) conditions,
For Galeazzi luxation with fractures,
For Colles fractures (for distal metaphyseal fractures having single fracture line that is not being related to radio-ulnar and radio-carpal joint),
For shortening osteotomies,
For tumor resections can be used.
