Gap Nail

Description

The Gap endo-exo medullary system is used for the treatment of fractures or correction of deformities in the femur, tibia and humerus of pediatric patients who have reached skeletal maturity or short statured adults.

This fixation device consists of an intramedullary nail linked to a plate via lag and mechanical screws creating a combined Endomedullary / Exomedullary osteosythesis device. This novel approach of osteosynthesis creates a load sharing system between the nail and plate thus limiting the risk of stress fractures and improving the implant stability in weak bones.

Intended use:

  • Diaphyseal fracture of the femur, tibia and humerus
  • Fractures of the femoral neck, subtrochanteric, intertrochanteric and combination fractures
  • Correction of deformities (OI, skeletal dysplasia, Coxa vara, Coxa valga)
  • Nonunions and malunions
