The Tibial Nail System is designed to provide intramedullary fixation for various types of fractures, malunions,
and nonunions of the tibia. It is intended for long bone fracture fixation of tibial fractures, which may include the following:
■ Transverse, oblique, spiral, segmental, and
■ Fractures with bone loss and bone transport
■ Open and closed fractures, pathologic fractures
■ Corrective osteotomies
■ Pseudarthrosis of the tibial shaft
■ Nonunions, malunions, and metaphyseal and epiphyseal fractures.
Features & Benefits
The CZMEDITECH Tibial Nail is intended to provide temporary stabilization of various types of fractures,malunions and nonunions of the Tibial.
The Nails are inserted using an opened or closed technique and can be static, dynamic and compression locked.
Types of fractures include, but not limited to fractures of the Tibial shaft, non-unions, malalignments,pathological humeral fractures, and impending pathological fractures
Physician education, training and professional judgement must be relied upon to choose the most appropriate device and treatment.
1. Any active or suspected latent infection or significant local inflammation in or near the affected area.
2. Damaged blood vessels can inhibit adequate blood supply to the fracture or surgical site.
3. Bone mass damaged by disease, infection, or prior implantation that does not provide adequate support and/or fixation for the device.
4. Obesity. Overweight or obese patients can place loads on the implants that can cause device fixation failure or
5. Failure of the device itself.
6. Patients with insufficient tissue coverage at the surgical site.
7. Use of implants that would interfere with anatomy or physiology.
8. Any psychiatric or neuromuscular disease that creates an unacceptable risk of fixation failure or complications in postoperative care.
9. Other medical or surgical conditions that would preclude the potential benefit of surgery.
