Intramedullary nails are used to align and stabilize long bone fractures. They are inserted into the bone marrow canal in the centre of the long bones of the extremities (e.g. femur and tibia).
One of the significant advantages of intramedullary nails over other methods of fixation is that Intramedullary nails share the load with the bone, rather that entirely support the bone. Because of this, patients are able to use the extremity more quickly.
BIOTEK offers a wide range of intramedullary nails in titanium for femur and tibia.
