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.

These cases were considered implant failures and did not affect any other observation in the study. Functional recovery of elderly patients with surgically-treated intertrochanteric fractures: Bone and Joint Outcome Whitepaper. The pooled data showed that IT as effective for postoperative functional recovery and pain relieve in patients with intertrochanteric fractures as 1-screw nailing system. Functional recovery after fracture of the hip.
Femoral neck shortening inertan.
In addition, elderly patients with osteoporosis are more prone to screw movement or cutting of screws into the femoral head, which can result in fixation failure. Follow-up visits occurred at 1, 3, 6, 9, and 12 months postoperatively and every year thereafter. Prices will vary around the world and local costs of implants may influence choices of implants.
No significant difference was found in IT vs. Also, costs of InterTan should be considered. Functional and radiographic outcomes of intertrochanteric hip fractures treated with calcar reduction, compression, and trochanteric entry nailing.
How is INTERTAN different?
Bone Joint J ; 96—B: Should the surgeon encounter very dense bone during nail insertion, the 17mm reamer will over-ream the proximal femur and allow the nail to slide more freely into the canal. About Your patients can enjoy life after hip fracture The evidence is in! Assessment of reporting bias We used funnel plot to evaluated reporting biases qualitatively.
Proximal femoral nails antirotation, Gamma nails, and dynamic hip screws for fixation of intertrochanteric fractures of femur: Malpositioning of the lag screws by 1- or 2-screw nailing systems for pertrochanteric femoral fractures: International Journal of Clinical and Experimental Medicine. The trapezoidal shape of the nail places naio material at the lateral side of the implant where tensile forces are typically the strongest. No patients in the IT group developed lateral cortex fractures.
Our pooled data analysis demonstrated that IT was as effective as the control group in terms of Harris Hip Score HHSblood loss, total complications, union time, length of hospital stay, revision rate, and fluoroscopy time. Finally, 9 91016 — 22 articles with patients that compared 2-screws with 1-screw intramedullary nail were included. Some products are not available in all countries. Int J Clin Exp Med. Long or overlength nails are commonly used to manage IFFs caused by primary or metastatic tumors and are less commonly used in cases of trauma.
Comparative study of the proximal femoral nail antirotation versus the reconstruction nail nsil the treatment of comminuted proximal femoral fracture.
Pain Management Interventions for Hip Fracture. Third, patient- and intfrtan confounders may have existed. The law curve of the HHS changes is shown in Figure 2. Inhibition of fracture healing. Osteoporosis may also lead to technical problems during the procedure.
Inntertan outcomes Functional outcome scores nxil obtained for all patients. The clothespin distal tip of the INTERTAN short nail reduces the overall cross-sectional stiffness of the implant to minimize the risk of iatrogenic fracture during insertion, to ease the actual process of nail insertion and to offer enhanced rotational stability within the proximal femoral canal.
The clothespin distal tip of the INTERTAN short nail reduces the overall cross-sectional stiffness of the implant to minimize the risk of iatrogenic fracture during insertion, to ease the actual process of nail insertion and to offer interrtan rotational stability within the proximal femoral canal. The larger inferior screw is neither keyed in rotation nor locked in place, and it too will either back out or migrate medially.
The problem lies in the fact that even implants that are keyed to prevent rotation can lntertan experience rotation of the fragments about the axis of the lag screw. Statistical analysis and data synthesis Meta-analyses was performed with Review Manager 5. Results of cephallomedullary nail fixation for displaced intracapsular femoral neck fractures.
Hip fracture surgery with the TRIGEN INTERTAN Nail | Smith & Nephew – US Patient
Three days postoperatively, the patients were encouraged to engage in partial weight-bearing ambulation. There are several challenges with conventional hip fracture implants: Hip fracture in seniors: The baseline data, which are shown in Table 1 and Table 2were similar between the two groups. A randomized prospective comparison of Intertan and Gamma3 for treating unstable intertrochanteric fractures.
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 intwrtan rotation and excessive screw migration. Delayed healing and nwil unions Solution: Fixation and intraoperative compression of a peritrochanteric hip fracture year-old female, three-part peritrochanteric hip fracture.
Declaration of conflicting interest The authors declare that there is no conflict of interest. The aim of this study was to describe the results using this device for the treatment of stable and unstable intertrochanteric fractures.
The trapezoidal nqil of the nail cause it to press-fit into the femoral metaphysis and provide enhanced rotational control vs. Reduced postoperative pain 9,10,11,13,14,15 Challenge: Journal of orthopaedic trauma.
