Specific bone deformities can be acutely corrected using internal devices, such as nails or plates. This may be suitable for mild deformities, such as Blount’s disease, small tibial bone defects or other angulation. In some of these procedures, the bone is corrected by osteotomy and then an internal device closes the gap.
The Agile Nail™ is a rigid implant made of titanium alloy, designed for femoral fracture treatment and deformity correction procedures. It is inserted in the intramedullary canal of the bone from the tip or slightly lateral to the tip of the greater trochanter and fixed to the bone with locking screws. The implants are available in several sizes to fit the bone anatomy of the patient.
The Orthofix Ankle Hindfoot Nailing System (AHN) is designed to be used for the fusing and fixation of bones in the ankle.
In beaming, a large diameter cannulated device distributes the axial load of the bone between fixation points, which helps hold a joint or osteotomy until it heals.
The JuniOrtho™ Plating System (JPS) is a pediatric range of stainless steel plates designed for surgical treatment of deformities and trauma reconstruction in lower limb. The JPS plates can be used for correction of congenital deformities in femur and tibia (varus, valgus, rotational and/or shortening of the lower limb) and for the treatment of articular fractures.
The SOLE™ Medial Column Fusion Plate System consists of stainless steel plates and screws, and is designed for the fixation of small bones and joints in the foot. The plates and screws are made for complex reconstruction procedures like Charcot foot.
