Features Benefits
Made of Titanium 6AL4V An alloy that offers strength and biocompatibility.
Hybrid Bow Allows the implant to be used in the femur or tibia.
Oblique Screw Holes The driving end of the nail offers two 25 oblique screw holes and one transverse screw hole. The multi-plane fixation is designed to offer more stable fixation of the fracture. Unique hole patterns offer versatility in fracture management.
A/P & M/L Screw Holes The non-driving end of the nail offers the choice of two anterior/posterior or two medial/lateral screw options. The design allows for more options in fracture management and better stability in some fracture patterns.
Dynamization Slot The non-driving end of the implant offers a compression slot in the medial/lateral plane. This allows the fracture to be dynamized while maintaining rotational stability.
Cannulated - Round Shape Allows the implant to be inserted over a Guide Rod and aids in removal.
Diameter choices Standard sizes are 10 mm, 11.5 mm and 13 mm diameters. Addresses many without carrying a large inventory of implants.
Specialty Knee Nail For tibia fractures only, the 8.5 mm diameter is available for small-stature patients.
