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.

Placement intrrtan a secondary point of fixation into the femoral neck and head reduces the chances of rotation but adds the secondary concern of Z-Effect. Clin Orthop Relat Res ; We performed subgroup analysis to explore the source of heterogeneity. The tertiary outcome was pain.

How is INTERTAN different?

Nai provides significantly greater fracture compression and reduced femoral shortening than a helical blade cephalomedullary nail. IT shows less implant cut-out rate and femoral fractures when compared with control groups. The law curve of the HHS changes is shown in Figure 2. Plain radiographs anteroposterior and lateral nqil were assessed on the first postoperative day to check fracture reduction and implant position. A retrospective analysis of the InterTan nail and proximal femoral nail anti-rotation-Asia in the treatment of unstable intertrochanteric femur fractures in the elderly.

Is a sliding hip screw or im nail the preferred implant for intertrochanteric fracture fixation? The INTERTAN nail turns that construct upside down and integrates the two screws so that they act as one device to bear all load, enact all compression and prevent excessive medial or lateral migration intertwn negating the Z-Effect.

These results, together with those from trials of similar short-term duration, also support the fact that few differences exist between the two implants, particularly in patients without osteoporosis and in relatively young patients. Plain radiographic outcomes anteroposterior and lateral projections were obtained at each visit.

The dual screw option is ideal for unstable fractures or for those surgeons simply wanting enhanced confirmation of fracture reduction. Case Study- 48 YOM with a Peritrochanteric Hip Fracture Cephalomedullary nailing and intraoperative compression of a peritrochanteric hip fracture year-old male, injured in a fall causing a two-part peritrochanteric hip fracture.

A randomized prospective comparison of Intertan and Gamma3 for treating unstable intertrochanteric fractures. Please review our privacy policy. Major changes in the implant position, major orthopedic complications complications related to fixationand fixation failures were noted.

This research received no specific grant from any funding agency in the public, commercial, or not-for-profit sectors. There were no significant differences in IT vs. The aim of this study was to describe the results using this device for the treatment of stable and unstable intertrochanteric fractures.

Reduced postoperative pain 9,10,11,13,14,15 Challenge: Predictors of failure for cephalomedullary nailing of proximal femoral fractures. Despite our consistent findings among jntertan orthopedic departments, there are several limitations to our study. Shortening of the femoral neck following peritrochanteric fracture.


Feb 6 ;95 3: Ulus Travma Acil Cerrahi Derg, ;21 6: Although some limitations exist in our study, relevant articles have been stringently screened according to the inclusion and exclusion criteria and the extracted data are of high quality. The integrated interlocking screws of the INTERTAN system increase stability and resistance to both intra and post-operative fracture rotation about the implant by intertann two points of naik within the femoral neck and head.

J Bone Joint Surg A. Proximal Femoral Nail Antirotation versus Gamma3 nail for intramedullary nailing of unstable trochanteric fractures. The procedure anesthesia, surgery, wound care, etc. Therefore, there was a need for an evidence base or recommendations to help surgeons make clinical decisions.

All Trademarks acknowledged This information intended for U. Our designing surgeons feel that rotational instability is a major contributing factor to that failure rate and propose the INTERTAN nail as the solution to this dilemma. The treatment of intertrochanteric fractures:
