AFFIXUS® Hip Fracture Nail System
Combines the principles of a compression hip screw with an Intramedullary nail
The AFFIXUS® Hip Fracture Nail System provides an efficient, practical solution for treating a wide range of proximal femoral fractures. The system combines the principles of a compression hip screw with the biomechanical advantage of an intramedullary nail. By combining a proximal 1.8M radius of curvature with a 3 degree distal bend, the resultant bow is comparable to a proximal 1.5M radius of curvature with a minimal offset. This not only accommodates the anterior bow of the natural femur, but also is designed to help ease insertion through the proximal region and minimize the risk of penetrating the anterior cortex.
