Humerus Interlocking Nail

Humerus Interlocking Nail assures optimal fixation for any type of diaphyseal and metaphyseal fractures of the humerus. The load handling aspect makes the nail preferable as it shares the load with the bone, instead of bearing it alone.

The lower end, shaft, and higher-end fractures of the humerus can all be classified according to where they occur. Interlocking humeral nails are used to treat these fractures.
