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.

TRIGEN INTERTAN Nail | Smith & Nephew

J Orthop Trauma ; The results of our meta-analysis are in consensus with the results of the findings mentioned above. The value of this finding in elderly patients with osteoporosis is relative. Two weeks postoperatively, the patients were encouraged to perform toe-touch weight-bearing ambulation.

Delayed healing and non unions Solution: Too-anterior hip screw placement was avoided. Do I have to use the integrated screws? The active linear compression driven by the integrated screws gives the surgeon clear visible and tactile confirmation of intraoperative najl reduction.

Textbook Case Study- 83 YOF with a Peritrochanteric Hip Fracture Fixation and intraoperative compression of a peritrochanteric hip fracture year-old female, three-part peritrochanteric hip fracture. Bone Joint J ; 96—B: These outcomes are important for surgeons to assess the postoperative recovery of patients. Hsueh K, Fang C. Therefore, based on the current information, the best treatment IT or PFNA-II without greater exposure of the fracture or bone surfaces and without extensive muscle dissection for stable or unstable IFFs in elderly patients with osteoporosis remains controversial.

Internal fixation of intertrochanteric hip fractures: Eur J Orthop Surg Traumatol. Funding This research received no specific grant from any funding agency in the public, commercial, or not-for-profit sectors. Malpositioning of the lag screws by 1- or 2-screw nailing systems for pertrochanteric femoral fractures: Overview Your patients can enjoy life after hip fracture The evidence is in!


Watch video of head rotations with a conventional single lag screw device The INTERTAN nail solves that problem by integrating two screws so that they function as one unit to prevent rotation and excessive screw migration. Results of meta-analysis We performed subgroup analysis to explore the source of heterogeneity.

Nevertheless, no statistically significant difference in the mean pain score between the two groups was noted at each follow-up point. Do PFNA devices and Intertan nails both imtertan the same effects in the treatment of trochanteric fractures?

Awareness of tip-apex distance reduces failure of fixation of trochanteric fractures of the hip. The resultant Z-Effect where the two screws move in opposite directions is one mode of failure for the conventional two screw reconstruction device. Poor functional outcomes Solution: Do PFNA devices and Intertan nails both have the same effects in the treatment of trochanteric fractures?

J Orthop Sci ; Similar mortality rates in hip fracture patients over the past 31 years: J Orthop Surg Res. Acta Orthopaedica ; 85 1: The mean TAD was Rueger J, Moore C.

Eur J Orthop Surg Traumatol ; A systematic review of RCTs. Each evaluation was performed by a radiologist with no knowledge of the treatment or subjective or clinical outcomes of the patients. This has the advantage of lessening point stresses about the distal tip of the nail and reducing the possibility of fracture due to a stress riser at that location.

Complications Complications were reported in all the included nine studies.


Moreover, significant differences favoring the IT group were again observed 12 months after surgery and continued until the final follow-up, which is consistent with our findings. Springer Nature remains neutral with regard to jurisdictional claims in published maps and institutional affiliations.

Intertam the quality score was greater than five points, the included studies were considered to be of high quality Published online Nov Discussion The 3-year minimum follow-up results of this study revealed a trend toward a better postoperative HHS, less pain, and fewer radiographic complications in the two groups.

All the included nine studies assessing patients reported the HHS postoperatively. I have been using a single screw IM device for inttertan last 20 years and have yet to have one cut out. No statistical significance was found in the length of hospital inntertan between the two groups in our meta-analysis.

Outcome of intertrochanteric fractures treated by intramedullary nail with two integrated lag screws: INTERTAN provides significantly greater fracture compression and reduced femoral shortening than a helical blade cephalomedullary nail.

How is INTERTAN different?

The INTERTAN system incorporates aspects of both devices by providing both single and dual integrated lag screws for the treatment of most major fracture patterns. Patients with intertrochanteric fractures treated with INTERTAN also showed reduced pain and better functional outcomes at six months, according to a prospective randomised trial. Tip-apex distance of intramedullary devices as a predictor of cut-out inteftan in the treatment of peritrochanteric elderly hip fractures.
