The DynaNail® Ankle Arthrodesis Nail is designed for tibiotalocalcaneal arthrodesis procedures to correct joint deformities or to revise failed total ankle replacements. It incorporates an innovative shape memory internal element that is simply stretched during the nail insertion procedure. Once the nail is fixed in place with screws, the shape memory element maintains the target fusion bones in close apposition and under sustained compression for longer time periods than static, non-adaptive intramedullary devices. This natural compression adjustment provides the fusion power of an external fixator with the ease and safety of an intramedullary nail. Surgeons implant the DynaNail Ankle Arthrodesis Nail using a surgical technique similar to that of traditional ankle fusion nails, thereby dramatically reducing the learning curve required for the new technology.
DynaNail® Ankle Arthrodesis Nail features:
- Titanium nail body
- Simple mechanical activation of the super-elastic alloy internal element
- Rigid, radiolucent, dual-arm targeting frame
- Large range of locking screw sizes
