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.

Hip fracture surgery with the TRIGEN INTERTAN Nail | Smith & Nephew – US Patient

Placement of a secondary point of fixation into the femoral neck and head reduces the chances of rotation but adds the secondary concern of Z-Effect. I have been using a single screw IM device for the last 20 years and have yet to have one cut out. The evidence is in! However, Iintertan group showed less implant cut-out and femoral fractures than 1-screw group. The procedure anesthesia, surgery, wound care, etc.

How is INTERTAN different?

Ulus Travma Acil Naip Derg, ;21 6: These factors between different studies are inevitable. This was consistent with our findings. The integrated interlocking screws of the INTERTAN system increase stability and resistance to both intra and post-operative fracture rotation about the implant jail providing two points of fixation within the femoral neck and head. These rates differ from two other studies that reported rates of Do I have to use the integrated screws?

Also, there are some limitations in our systematic review and meta-analysis. Biomechanical evaluation of interlocking lag screw design in intramedullary nailing of unstable pertrochanteric fractures.

Outcome of intertrochanteric fractures treated by intramedullary nail with two integrated lag screws: Three days postoperatively, the patients were encouraged to engage in partial weight-bearing ambulation.

Finally, because of the observational nature of this study, we may not have addressed all potential confounding variables in our analyses. InterTan nail versus Gamma3 nail for intramedullary nailing of unstable trochanteric fractures.


The clothespin distal tip of the INTERTAN short nail nai, the overall cross-sectional stiffness of the implant to minimize the risk of iatrogenic fracture during insertion, to naik the actual process of nail insertion and to offer enhanced rotational stability within the proximal femoral canal.
