Titanium Cannulated Hindfoot Arthrodesis Nail
The Hindfoot Arthrodesis Nail, part of the Expert Nailing System, permits a proper hindfoot alignment due to a unique lateral bend of the nail along with an added stability provided through various locking options.
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
