C-NAIL is intramedullary nail for minimal-invasive fixation of intraarticular calcaneal fractures. The principle is to stabilize fragments of the fractured calcaneus using the nail with up to seven interlocking screws which create angularly stable fixation. The maximum of stability is achieved by fixing the sustentacular fragment towards the nail with two interlocking screws guided by a very precise aiming device.
The design of the nail is different for the left leg (indicated by “L”) and the right leg (indicated by “R”). The nail length is 65 mm with a diameter of 8 mm. The nail can be extended and closed by an end cap with sizes: 0 mm; 5 mm; 10 mm; 15 mm; 20 mm.
