Retrograde tibiotalarcalcaneal nailing is an effective surgical treatment for patients that require secure fusion of the ankle and talar joint. The Oxbridge™Ankle Fusion Nail System has been designed to offer a simple and reproducible surgical option for these patients.
Choice of dynamic and static proximal locking screw options enables dynamic loading of the nail.
Ultra low profile heads and soft tips minimise soft tissue irritation at the subcutaneous border. Choice of insertion point – medial to lateral or lateral to medial.Self tapping screws for ease of insertion.Fully threaded screws to achieve bi-cortical fixation.Increments of 2mm – 26 lengths – 20mm to 120mm
Biocompatible material with excellent fatigue strength. Modulus of elasticity closer to bone than that of stainless steel.
Three nail diameters – 10mm, 11mm & 12mm and three nail lengths - 150mm, 180mm & 250mm (250mm in 11mm & 12mm only). Accommodates anatomical variation and reduces inventory requirements.
Two PA distal screw options and two ML lateral screw options.Distal screws can be positioned accurately in the calcaneum and talus for secure fixation.
Additional compression and rotational stability of fusion site augmented by positioning cannulated screw either anterior or posterior to nail, or both. The jig ensures that the nail position will not compromise screw placement.
Instrumentation and surgical technique have been designed to be as simple and straightforward as possible.
Instruments are in one tray and laid out for quick access and ease of use.
