When these nails are used, they will be used in opposing pairs. To achieve three-point fastening, the nail will be bent. The ideal fixing points will be at the insertion site, the fracture site, and some distance away from the fracture site. They are utilized more frequently in children or those who have lengthy bone fractures with tiny medullary canals.
- Use the three- to four-point fixation technique.
- The fracture point is where the nail’s apex is located.
- Blunt ends guarantee secure implantation as it passes across the cortex and stop the cortex from being perforated.
- A solid nail with a small diameter and elastic properties.
- promotes faster fracture healing by allowing micro-motion at the fracture site.
- The stack nailing technique can be employed when the medullary canal is broader.
- Can be maintained flush with the bone’s outer cortex.
- Lower incidence of infection.
- Minimum instrumentation and simple insertion technique.
- Available in both Stainless Steel and Titanium material.
- Diameter (in mm): 2.5, 3, 3.5, 4 and 4.5
- Fracture of the neck, trochanteric, subtrochanteric region of the femur
- Distal femur fracture with distal fragment 10 cm or longer
- Tibial shaft fracture
- Proximal humerus fracture
