Indications for Use

Indications for Use: 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.

OUTCOME BASED DESIGN

Designed to improve patient outcomes by resolving some of the most pressing clinical challenges.

 

  Features Benefits
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 (15.66mm) and LATERAL RELIEF CUT™ Design help to preserve bone in insertion area due to reduced critical width.
LATERAL RELIEF CUT™ Design Design of the nail avoids impingement on lateral cortex.
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 Unique 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 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 holds blade or screw in a fixed position to help maintain femoral neck length.

 

 

REDUCED PROCEDURAL COMPLEXITY

Designed to improve efficiency and ease of use for surgeons and OR staff.

 

  Features Benefits
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 designed for easier attachment of nail to insertion handle.

 

 

COMPREHENSIVE SURGICAL OPTIONS

Designed to provide an extensive range of proximal femoral nailing options, including blade/screw head element, locking options, and nail lengths & diameters.

 

  Features Benefits
Rotational Locking Allows for sliding of blade or screw head element.
Utilizes the Flexible Screwdriver.
Static Locking Provides a fixed construct with no head element movement.
Utilizes Hex Screwdriver with TLA.
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 Optional percutaneous set with larger instruments including protection sleeve and insertion handle.
Distal Locking Options Long nail provides three distal locking options, including a unique oblique distal hole that is offset an additional 10° to better target bone in condyles.
Wide Selection of Nails Wide selection of nail lengths and diameters covers broad array of patient anatomy.
