Titanium Cannulated Hindfoot Arthrodesis Nail

Features & Benefits

  •    

    Various locking options are available within the nail:

    • Distally, the spiral blade increases surface area and enhances load distribution in the calcaneus
    • The 6.0 mm locking screws allow a posterior-to-anterior fixation for improved purchase in the calcaneus as well as a calcaneocuboid fusion option
    • The appropriate endcap provides a fixed-angle construct with the spiral blade and/or the 6.0 mm locking screw
    • The angulated 5.0 mm locking screw through the talus facilitates the subtalar fusion by additional fixation and provides an optional talar/navicular fusion
    •  Proximally, the placement of the two 5.0 mm locking screws are targeted through the aiming arm, regardless of nail length
    • The system allows different locking orientations: Medial-to-lateral or lateral-to-medial
    • The dynamization slot allows optional postoperative compression
  •    

    The lateral bend of the nail is designed to do the following:

    • Restore 3° to 5° of valgus positioning to improve patient’s gait
    • Avoid damage to the lateral plantar artery and nerve
