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.

The nail’s shape in association with the smaller entry portal give it enhanced rotational stability within the proximal femur. Flow chart of the trial selection process was presented in Fig. Ulus Travma Acil Cerrahi Derg, ;21 6: This effect may have also resulted from the increased comorbidities in these patients rather than any deterioration of the ITs because no patients in the Naill group described any naol symptoms related to their affected limbs during follow-up.

J Bone Joint Surg Br. J Orthop Surg Res.

Therefore, we could confidently draw conclusions about these results. J Orthop Surg Res. A randomized prospective comparison of Intertan and Gamma3 for treating unstable intertrochanteric fractures. A forest plot diagram showed the time to union, length of hospital stay and fluoroscopy time.


The aim of this study was to describe the results using this device for the treatment of stable and unstable intertrochanteric fractures.

Acta Orthopaedica ; 85 1: Hip fractures in seniors: Comparison of clinical outcomes with three different intramedullary nailing devices in the treatment of unstable trochanteric fractures. In summary, regardless of the similarity in the final HHS, the most significant finding was that elderly patients with osteoporosis undergoing IT fixation exhibited functional recovery intertzn early as 3 months postoperatively, in contrast to the PFNA-II-treated patients.

Typically, the superior screw is of smaller diameter than the inferior and bears a disproportionate amount of load during weight bearing.

How is INTERTAN different?

All procedures were performed at a single institution. The resultant Z-Effect where the two screws move in opposite directions is one mode of failure for the conventional two screw reconstruction device. Why does the short nail have a clothespin distal tip?

Risk of bias and quality assessment According to the Cochrane Handbook for Systematic Reviews of Interventions, the methodological quality and basis of the included RCTs were assessed as follows: If I only use the single subtrochanteric lag screw option does that create a stress riser at the empty inferior hole in the nail?

J Bone Joint Surg Am ; These rates differ from two other studies that reported rates of No bone grafts, bone void filler, or suction drains were used in any patients.


Product Information Your patients can enjoy life after hip fracture The evidence is in! Secondly, the follow-up of patient is different between included articles. Chinese Med J Engl ; Thirdly, heterogeneity between the ingertan literatures may affect the results of our meta-analysis.

J Bone Miner Res. In nakl, the nail’s trapezoidal profile also provides enhanced anatomical fit and added rotational stability in the proximal femoral metaphysis similar to that offered by conventional hip stems.

TRIGEN INTERTAN Nail | Smith & Nephew

Recently, the intramedullary nails showed better functional recovery and a better biomechanical stability compared with DHS 67. Watch video of head rotations with a conventional single lag screw device. However, we suspect that the small sample size of elderly patients with osteoporosis contributed to this finding.

Published online Nov Meanwhile, moderate heterogeneity and risk of bias should be considered when interpreting these findings. HHS was the primary outcome assessed in our systematic review and meta-analysis. Changes in functional status attributable to hip fracture:
