The TRIGEN™ INTERTAN nail was designed as a trochanteric portal intramedullary nail especially shaped for fractures of the proximal femur. The. INTERTAN. Objectives. To compare the long-term functional and radiographic outcomes of the proximal femoral nail antirotation-Asia (PFNA-II) and. The goal of this study was to compare the outcomes of unstable trochanteric fractures treated with the InterTan nail (Smith & Nephew, Memphis, Tennessee) and.

Yu J et al. Internal fixation of pertrochanteric fractures using DHS with a two-hole side-plate. All the included nine studies assessing patients reported the HHS postoperatively. Poor functional outcomes Solution: Our designing surgeons feel that rotational instability is a major contributing factor to that failure rate and propose the INTERTAN nail as the solution to this dilemma. If P values were less than 0. The procedure anesthesia, surgery, wound care, etc.
Length of hospital stay Five articles with patients showed the outcome of length of hospital stay. Risk factors in cutout of sliding hip screw in intertrochanteric fractures: A systematic review of RCTs.
Faster time to fracture union 9,11,12,13,19,23,24,25,26,27,28, These outcomes are important for surgeons to assess the postoperative recovery of patients.
Ulus Travma Acil Cerrahi Derg, ;21 6: Mechanical testing of the two screw construct was stopped atcycles with no evidence of implant cut out, further reinforcing the INTERTAN nail philosophy. White Paper Screw Comparison.
Watch video of head rotations with a conventional single lag screw device. The integrated interlocking infertan of the INTERTAN system increase stability intdrtan resistance to both intra and post-operative fracture rotation about the implant by providing two points of fixation within the femoral neck and head. Method of assessment Follow-up visits occurred at 1, 3, 6, 9, and 12 months postoperatively and every year thereafter.
This is important in the proximal femur where maintenance of correct femoral neck anteversion during lag screw placement is essential to the prevention of implant cut out. Fixation and intraoperative compression of a peritrochanteric hip fracture year-old female, three-part peritrochanteric hip fracture.
A study in Asian population. This does, however, negate the press-fit effect created by the nail’s trapezoidal shape.
Dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry of the femoral neck was performed preoperatively in all patients. We performed subgroup analysis to explore the source of heterogeneity.
The INTERTAN system incorporates the best aspects of both devices by providing both single and dual integrated lag screws for the treatment of most major fracture patterns. Results Search results Initially, citations were identified from electronic journals databases, of which records were removed by primary screening. Statistical analysis and data synthesis Meta-analyses was performed with Review Manager 5. Our designing surgeons feel that rotational instability is a major contributing factor to that failure rate and propose the INTERTAN nail as the solution to this dilemma.
Hip fracture surgery with the TRIGEN INTERTAN Nail | Smith & Nephew – US Patient
The treatment of intertrochanteric fractures: J Bone Joint Surg A. A randomized prospective comparison of Intertan and Gamma3 for treating unstable intertrochanteric fractures. The INTERTAN nail offers a two screw solution for enhanced rotational stability and active linear compression for visual and tactile compression of the fracture.
Plain radiographic outcomes anteroposterior and lateral projections were obtained at each visit. The results of in vitro simulation testing have not been proven to predict clinical performance. Sci World J ; Get in touch with us or arrange a visit from a member of our team.
How is INTERTAN different?
HHS score can comprehensively assess the function of patient after hip surgery. INTERTAN provides significantly greater fracture compression and reduced femoral shortening than a helical blade cephalomedullary jntertan.
J Orthop Surg Res. Watch video of head rotations with a conventional single lag screw device The INTERTAN nail solves that problem by integrating two screws so that they function as one unit to prevent rotation and excessive screw migration.
