The Flex-Thread™ Distal Fibula Intramedullary Nail System is an innovative solution designed to advance the treatment of fibula fractures and osteotomies.
The Flex-Thread Distal Fibula Intramedullary Nail System is not your ordinary nail system. With this proprietary innovation, Conventus Flower Orthopedics provides a system that offers design solutions that meet clinical challenges, ease of use, and efficient surgical options.
The unique Flex-Thread technology allows the nail to flex as it is inserted into the intramedullary canal. This flexible design not only allows for ease of insertion, but also facilitates the entry point on the distal fibula.
The self-cutting and self-tapping nail flutes optimize the purchase of bone within the intramedullary canal.
The Flex-Thread Distal Fibula Intramedullary Nail System features 2.7mm and 3.5mm ZERO Profile Locking Screws, designed to minimize soft tissue irritation. The screw’s threaded head engages the fibula cortex to help improve fixation.
The system is also fully equipped with threaded and low-profile, non-threaded End Caps, designed to prevent bony ingrowth and engage the distal fibula for additional fixation.
The 3.8mm elongated holes of the Flex-Thread Distal Fibula Intramedullary Nail accepts rigid and/or flexible syndesmotic fixation. These holes will accept:
