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.

Plain radiographs anteroposterior and lateral projections were assessed on the first postoperative day to check fracture reduction and implant position.

How is INTERTAN different?

Each evaluation was performed by a radiologist with no knowledge of the treatment or subjective or clinical outcomes of the patients. Tip-apex distance of intramedullary devices as a iintertan of cut-out failure in the treatment of peritrochanteric elderly hip fractures. The state of the art in Hsueh K, Fang C.

Typically, the superior nsil is of smaller diameter than the inferior and bears a disproportionate amount of load during weight bearing. The Treatment of Intertrochanteric Fractures: The aftermath of hip fracture: A study in Asian population. Funding This research received no specific grant from any funding agency in the public, commercial, or intertqn sectors.

A call for health system reform. The integrated interlocking screws provide superior life to cut out and so offer surgeons a viable treatment modality for highly unstable fracture patterns.

Functional assessment is a very important part of rehabilitation therapy. A study in Asian population.

The journal of trauma and acute care surgery. Functional recovery after fracture of the hip. A prospective clinical study.

Method of assessment Follow-up visits occurred at 1, 3, 6, 9, and 12 months postoperatively and every year thereafter.

Cephalo-medullary nail fixation of intertrochanteric fractures: 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. The results of in vitro simulation testing have not been proven to predict clinical performance.

Delayed healing and non unions Solution: J Bone Joing Surg Br. The aftermath of hip fracture: 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.

Proximal Femoral Nail Antirotation.

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 intertqn freely into the canal. A forest plot diagram showed the time to union, length of hospital stay and fluoroscopy time.

Santoni BG, et al. Genet Mol Res ; When an IFF occurs and an implant is applied, the occurrence of a decisive difference in outcome cannot be automatically evaluated based on factors such as the operation time, length of stay, blood loss, fluoroscopy time, intertna short-term pain because numerous subjective and objective factors influence these parameters. Comparison of the reconstruction trochanteric antigrade nail TAN with the proximal femoral nail antirotation PFNA in the management of reverse oblique intertrochanteric hip fractures.


Outcome of intertrochanteric fractures treated by intramedullary nail with two integrated lag screws: All Trademarks acknowledged This information intended for U.

Functional and radiographic outcomes of intertrochanteric hip fractures treated with calcar reduction, compression, and trochanteric entry nailing. The relevant data included study location, main authors, sample size, study design, inteertan date, gender, population, type of nails, age, follow-up, interventions, and patient reported outcomes.

We used the PRISMA guidelines and Cochrane Handbook to evaluate the quality of included studies to ensure that the pooled data of our meta-analysis were reliable and veritable. Hip fractures in seniors: Rueger J, Moore C.

This trapezoidal cross-section allows a larger diameter nail to fit into a smaller hole thus reducing the total amount of bone removed. The trapezoidal shape of the nail places more material at the lateral side of the implant where tensile forces are imtertan the strongest.
