Reconstruction nail enables performance of synthesis of concurrent fractures of diaphysis and neck of the same femur. It is even more frequently used for the synthesis of the femur where proximal locking needs to be applied and the proximal fragment is too short or defective in some other way and the protection in the femoral neck has to be done.
Reconstruction nail has a circular cross-section. The proximal length, which is 80 mm (regardless of the size of the nail), is strengthened to 15 mm. The 90-mm proximal part is deflected by 6°30´. This deflection enables insertion of the nail from the top of the greater trochanter. The nail is different for left and right limb. The nail is hollow and can therefore be inserted along the guide wire. MEDIN provides nails in diameters: 10, 11,12,13,14 and 15 mm, in sizes from 320 to 500 mm after 20 mm. MEDIN provides only hollow nails.
The nails are made of implant steel ISO 58321E or Titanium Ti6Al4V ELI ISO 5832-3.
