Agile Nail

The Agile Nail is designed to address femoral fractures and deformity correction procedures. It consists of antegrade intramedullary nails for the femur with respective end-caps and locking screws. The intramedullary nails feature proximal and distal holes to accept locking screws. Nails, end-caps and screws are available in several sizes and are manufactured from a titanium alloy. All implantable devices are designed for single use only.

Benefits to Surgeon

  • Diameter from 7 up to 10mm
  • Titanium alloy implants
  • Procurvation design for easy insertion
  • Optimized and lean instrumentation
  • ig with patented locking mechanism

Benefits to Patient

  • Minimally invasive (with a small diameter for the nails and the screws)
  • Early weight-bearing as tolerated by the patient and under surgeon discretion
  • Titanium alloy implants to avoid allergic reaction to nickel
  • 10° proximal bending to facilitate the lateral insertion of the nail and to reduce the impact on the growth plate
  • Small proximal diameter of the nail for reduced invasiveness

Indications

The Agile Nail is intended for insertion in the medullary canal of a femur for the alignment and the stabilization of fractures and for the correction of deformities. It is indicated for thetreatment of subtrochanteric fractures and of femoral shaft fractures, in pediatric patients, with the exception of newborns and infants, and in adult patients with an appropriate medullary canal. The indications include:

  • prophylactic nailing of impending pathologic fractures;
  • fixation of femurs that have been surgically prepared (osteotomy);
  • nonunions and malunions;
  • reconstruction following tumor resection and grafting and bone lengthening and shortening.

Contraindications

The Agile Nail is not designed or sold for any use except as indicated. Use of the intramedullary nailing implant is contraindicated for patient with:

  • General medical conditions not suitable for surgery;
  • Active or suspected latent infections in the fracture area;
  • Foreign body sensitivity (where material sensitivity is suspected, test should be made prior to implant insertion);
  • Mental or physiological conditions who are unwilling or incapable of following postoperative care instructions;
  • Pathological fractures without a diagnosis.
