Intramedullary nails are used to fix fractures of the long bones, such as the tibia (shinbone) and femur (thighbone). The intramedullary nail market size is greater than $1.5billion worldwide and growing annually at 6%.
Research shows that small axial movements along the length of the bone help speed up healing, while twisting movements slow down healing.
The Apex Tibial Nail offers both controlled axial motion and very little twisting providing the optimum healing conditions at the fracture site reducing the healing time and time to patient weight bearing.
No other nail on the market gives surgeons the freedom to choose this ideal combination of flexibility and stability for their patients.
In addition to controlled axial micromotion and torsional stability the Apex Nailing system offers standard proximal and distal interlocking options in an all-in-one product.
The Apex Nail Instrumentation Kit allows the surgeon assemble, insert and seat the nail quickly and easily with no change from accepted techniques.
