TFN-ADVANCED® Proximal Femoral Nailing System (TFNA)

The TFN-ADVANCED Proximal Femoral Nailing System (TFNA) is designed to advance hip fracture treatment with:

  • Outcomes-based Design
  • Reduced Procedural Complexity
  • Comprehensive Surgical Options

The TFNA System is designed to solve a wide range of unmet needs for surgeons, OR staff, and administrators.

More than five years in the making, this system offers advancement in hip fracture treatment, including outcome-based design, reduced procedural complexity, and comprehensive surgical options. It incorporates the best elements of our highly successful global hip nails (TFN, PFNA*, and PFNA II*), optimized through input from hundreds of surgeons around the world. The TFNA System truly is a global platform that delivers modern innovation.

TFN-ADVANCED® Proximal Femoral Nailing System (TFNA)

Features & Benefits

Improved Anatomical Fit Contoured Design

Improved Anatomical Fit Contoured Design

Improved nail shape (1.0m anatomic bow) based on multi-ethnic 3-D computational study designed to better fit patient anatomy and to help avoid impinging anterior cortex compared to nails with larger radius of curvature

Small Proximal Diameter

Small Proximal Diameter

Small proximal diameter (15.66mm) and LATERAL RELIEF CUT™ Design help to preserve bone in insertion area due to reduced critical width.

LATERAL RELIEF CUT™ Design

LATERAL RELIEF CUT™ Design

Design of the nail avoids impingement on lateral cortex.

TFNA Helical Blade

TFNA Helical Blade

TFNA Helical Blade technology is designed to compress bone during insertion, which enhances implant anchorage and may reduce the risk of cut-out.

BUMP CUT™ Design

BUMP CUT™ Design

Titanium alloy and BUMP CUT Design of proximal hole provides improved fatigue strength compared to existing nails of similar size.

Lies flush to Lateral Cortex

Lies flush to Lateral Cortex

Oblique lateral end of both blade and screw lies flush to lateral cortex to reduce protrusion on soft tissue.

Static Locking Option

Static Locking Option

Static locking option holds blade or screw in a fixed position to help maintain femoral neck length.

Radiolucent insertion handle

Radiolucent insertion handle

Radiolucent insertion handle with radiographic indicators improves x-ray visualization and assists with guide wire placement.

QUICK CLICK™ Self-Retaining Technology

QUICK CLICK™ Self-Retaining Technology 

QUICK CLICK™ Self-Retaining Technology designed for easy attachment of nail to insertion handle.

Rotational Locking

Rotational Locking

Allows for sliding of blade or screw head element

Utilizes the Flexible Screwdriver

Static Locking

Static Locking

Provides a fixed construct with no head element movement

Utilizes Hex Screwdriver with TLA

Choice of Head Elements

Choice of Head Elements

Choice of both TFNA Helical Blade or TFNA Screw to suit a wide variety of clinical needs, which supports surgical preferences and helps facilitate hospital standardization.

Percutaneous Set

Percutaneous Set

Percutaneous Set

Optional percutaneous set with large instruments including protection sleeve and insertion handle.

Distal Locking Options

Distal Locking Options

Long nail provides three distal locking options, including a oblique distal hole that is offset an additional 10° to target bone in condyles.

Wide Selection of Nails

Wide Selection of Nails

Wide selection of nail lengths and diameters covers broad array of patient anatomy.

Indication Statement

TFN-Advanced™ Proximal Femoral Nailing System is intended for treatment of fractures in adults and adolescents (12-21) in which the growth plates have fused. Specifically, the system is indicated for: stable and unstable pertrochanteric fractures; intertrochanteric fractures; basal neck fractures; combinations of pertrochanteric, intertrochanteric, and basal neck fractures.

The Long Nail is additionally intended for treatment of fractures in adults and adolescents (12-21) in which the growth plates have fused for the following indications: subtrochanteric fractures; pertrochanteric fractures associated with shaft fractures; pathologic fractures (including prophylactic use) in both trochanteric and diaphyseal regions; long subtrochanteric fractures; proximal or distal non-unions, malunions and revisions.

Both the short and long TFNA Systems are additionally indicated for use with cleared, polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) bone cement that can be delivered through the fenestrated blade or screw via a cannula in skeletally mature adults with risk of cut-out or device instability due to poor bone quality.

Contraindications for TFNA System with PMMA bone cement:
When used with bone cement: Risk for intra-articular cement leakage; Acute traumatic fractures with good bone quality; Intracapsular hip fractures; In the presence of active or incompletely treated infection at the site where the bone cement is to be applied.
