The Gotfried PC.C.P.™ uses a minimally invasive procedure and dedicated percutaneous instrumentation to treat pertrochanteric fractures without fracture exposure. The instruments, implants and application technique, collectively, contribute to reduced patient trauma resulting in improved ambulatory ability.
Features & Benefits
The PC.C.P technique is designed around four fundamental principles:
Closed fractures reduction to a 135° shaft/neck angle
Minimally invasive surgery with no exposure of the fracture
The provision of rotational stability
Prevention of lateral wall fracture and hence of fracture collapse
Minimized operative trauma and blood loss
No fracture exposure
Provides rotational stability
Minimally invasive procedures
Immediate weight bearing (surgeon advised)
Reduces postoperative pain
Comparatively, studies show decreased mortality1,2
Pertrochanteric and Base of Femur Neck Fractures
Acute medical conditions including: impaired blood supply, pulmonary insufficiency (i.e. ARDS, fat embolism) or latent infection
Foreign body sensitivity. Where material sensitivity is suspected, tests should be made prior to implantation
