Femoral Recon Nail is designed to help treat various fractures of the femur. Different nails are available to be placed through the tip of the Greater Trochanter. Screws are placed through the nail to secure the implant in place and maintain length and alignment while healing occurs. The nails have multiple screw holes in the proximal body to allow surgeons to address different fracture types. Proximal and distal slots allow for compression or dynamization across a fracture.
Femoral Recon Nail System offers an extensive range of surgical entry points and locking options to meet more surgeons’ needs for femoral shaft fractures.
Nail designed to better fit patient anatomy and help avoid impinging anterior cortex compared to nails with a larger radius of curvature.
Femoral Recon Nail instrumentation includes features designed to reduce surgical complexity facilitating intraoperative visualization, implant positioning and alignment as well as ease of use for OR staff.
Choice of standard and reconstruction locking modes allows for the treatment of a variety of femoral fracture patterns and locations.
Equipped with four distal locking options, including an oblique distal hole to better target bone in the condyles and an A/P hole that provides an optional purchase point.
Greater Trochanter and Piriformis Fossa entry point nail designs to accommodate varying patient anatomies and surgeon preference.
Femoral Recon Nails design offers great flexibility
Different Nails for left and right femur
Anatomic bend for ease in insertion and extraction
Cannulation of all nails for guided insertion in reamed and unreamed technique
Large portfolio with nail diameters ranging from Dia 9 to 11 mm and lengths ranging from 320 to 420 mm
Versatile locking configuration for static, dynamic and standard locking
Femoral Recon Nails available in Titanium and SS 316L
Unique distal locking options
The unique distal combination hole enables the optimal locking for every anatomical situation and fracture type. The surgeon can use standard locking (with two locking screws). The end cap allows for angular stable locking of the most distal locking implant in both configurations.
Self-retaining Screw driver for effortless and secure end cap pick-up and insertion
Possibility to block most proximal locking screw for absolute angular stability
End cap prevents ingrowth of tissue and facilitates nail removal
The 6.4 mm Cannulated Lag Screws have a unique thread design that provide an excellent grip. Improved front cutting flutes allow for lesser insertion torque and thinner flanks for less bone removal.
Secure placement of the Lag Screws within small neck diameters can be achieved due to separating the two 6.4 mm lag screws and distance between the 6.4 mm Lag screws.
The distal locking configuration features a round and an oblong hole to allow for static and / or dynamic distal locking.
5 mm cortical screws, common to the Femoral Recon Nails, are designed to simplify the surgical procedure and promote a minimally invasive approach.
Self-holding Screw driver for effortless and secure locking screw pick-up.
Double thread for more contact points leading to enhanced stability
Larger cross-section for improved mechanical resistance
Thread closer to screw head providing better bone purchase and improved stability
Self-holding Screw driver for effortless and secure locking screw pick-up
Features & Benefits
The Femoral Recon Nail System is intended for treatment of fractures in adults and adolescents in which the growth plates have fused. Specifically, the system is indicated for:
Ipsilateral neck/shaft fractures
Femoral shaft fractures
Impending pathologic fractures
Malunions and nonunions
The physician’s education, training and professional judgement must be relied upon to choose the most appropriate device and treatment.
Any active or suspected latent infection or marked local inflammation in or about the affected area.
Compromised vascularity that would inhibit adequate blood supply to the fracture or the operative site.
Bone stock compromised by disease, infection or prior implantation that can not provide adequate support and/or fixation of the devices.
Material sensitivity, documented or suspected.
Obesity. An overweight or obese patient can produce loads on the implant that can lead to failure of the fixation of the device or to failure of the device itself.
Patients having inadequate tissue coverage over the operative site.
Implant utilization that would interfere with anatomical structures or physiological performance.
Any mental or neuromuscular disorder which would create an unacceptable risk of fixation failure or complications in postoperative care.
Other medical or surgical conditions which would preclude the potential benefit of surgery.
