GPC Tibial Nails: A Quality You Can Trust

Tibia bone is the largest of the two bones in the lower half of the leg. A fracture in this bone requires more care and precision to make sure that the weight of the body is supported and the bone is properly fixated. With tibia fractures, it is very common to go wrong. The slightest of mistakes would mean that the bone is not in its right position and would not heal properly. The previous techniques involved the usage of nails in bringing the broken bone together. However, this often resulted in malalignment. With the new titanium nails, the problem is resolved. Be it a proximal or distal fracture the nail can fix it without causing any alignment issues. We offer you tibia nails and the whole kit made from the best material: Titanium. The nails are light in weight yet strong enough to bear the weight of the body.

GPC Tibial Nails

They are designed using the latest technology to help with the alignment of tibial fractures. These nails are found in steel and titanium so that you can use the one that best suits you. We also give you interlocking nails with lengths that vary from 22mm to 44 mm and diameters from 9mm to 14mm.With two proximal locking options and three distal locking options, you can’t just go wrong with these tibia nails.

Instrument set for Tibia Interlocking Nails

The kit is perfect for any surgical procedure involving tibia nails. It has a complete set of all the instruments you might need. From tissue protector to ram wrench the kit has everything you might need.

No more running around to assemble the things. With the kit in hand, you have everything close by that you might need.

Locking bolts of various lengths and end caps

Depending on the age and the type of fracture, it is important the bolt size varies too. Using one bolt to fix all sizes would result in problems and complications. This is the reason we offer locking bolts made of steel and titanium. Each bolt has a diameter of 4.9mm but varies in length. This is to ensure that the length doesn’t compromise on the strength of the bolt. The bolts come in sizes which range from 20mm to 60mm with all the sizes of even numbers available in between. Each bolt, either be it of steel or titanium is available in all these sizes. So make sure you use the right code to pick the right bolt.

Orthopedics in India: What You Should Know!

For those of you who are out of the loop or need a reminder, orthopedics is a branch of medicine that deals exclusively with the prevention and correction of injuries and/or disorders of the skeletal system, including all the joints, muscles and ligaments that are also present. The developments in orthopedic medicine have been quite astounding throughout the past years, with innovations now that can physically allow individuals to feel and function like a new person – especially those orthopedic instruments and implants that can be found at GPC Medical Ltd.

In the current world of medicine a huge number of individuals undergo invasive orthopedic procedures on a daily basis in order to correct a medical condition that has gone astray or an accidental injury, so that they can resume their normal routines and get back to a happy, healthy way of life.  Several health conditions and bodily injuries may lead health providers to recommending their patients to follow through with an orthopedic procedure, including arthritis or a fall that has resulted in disabling injuries.

In a nutshell, arthritis is a degenerative disorder that progressively worsens over the course of years and eventually causes the joints, especially the knees, to be “bone on bone” which inevitably causes the individual involved excruciating pain and a noticeable decline in how they function and go about their daily routines.  Once a decline in functioning becomes noticeable and the pain becomes more and more unbearable, these individuals may be candidates for total knee replacements.  On the other hand, unexpected injuries may also occur – such as falls – which may require individuals to undergo hip replacements, shoulder replacements, and more.  Ultimately, no matter what the problem is, the patient will deserve the best – and the best can be found at GPC Medical Ltd.

Orthopedic Trauma Implants

Trauma is a physical injury derived from the Greek word meaning “a wound”. It involves transfer of kinetic energy. Orthopedic trauma involves fractures, subluxation or dislocation of bones and joints. Trauma can be of varying degrees and efficient evaluation of the severity of trauma by using ATLS system helps plan an effective management.

Orthopedic Trauma Implants

Implants in Orthopedic Trauma:

Out of various other options for the surgical management of orthopaedic trauma, one involves application of an implant or a device for permanently or temporarily restoring the physiology or anatomy of joint or other skeletal structures. An orthopedic implant is a medical device build to replace or support a lost joint or a damaged bone. Surgeon picks the implant by assessing the weight, size and type most appropriate to the individual. The strength of the implant is provided by stainless steel and titanium alloys used in its production and topped with a plastic coating to act as an artificial cartilage. The operation in orthopedic surgery that involves the implementation of such implants for the purpose of repairing a damaged or lost bone is called internal fixation. Pins, rods, screws and plates are among the few types of medical implants that are used to fixate the fractured bones while allowing them to heal.

Prevention of Infections in Implants:

Major concerns faced with implants are prevention of infection and amalgamation of the implant with the host-tissue. Infection has long been a serious issue leading to limb amputations and even death due to septicemia. Properties of the prosthesis used, such as its chemical composition, hydrophobicity, roughness of the surface are all important factors in the incidence of infection after an orthopedic implantation.

Advent of Antibiotics:

S.aureus and S.epidermitis are the main causative agents of implant-related infections in orthopedic surgery. Thanks to the discovery of antibiotics, the incidence of infections has been reduced and so has the mortality and morbidity associated with it. But the extensive use of antibiotics has produced a number of evolving resistant bacterial strains.

Coating methods:

A new method termed as coating is applied on the surface to further reduce the chances of bacterial invasion of the prosthetic and avoid loosening of the implant. These coatings are of different types such as antibiotic releasing and non-releasing coatings using different techniques such as active or passive methods. Hydroxyapatite is one of the non releasing coatings that require thermal method for application while dip or spray method is used to apply releasing coatings (antibiotic containing coatings) because of reduced thermal stability.

Implant Removal:

Implant removal is a common elective orthopedic operation that contributes 30% of planned surgical operations. In clinical practice the most common indications for implant removal include pain, irritation of soft tissue, and recommencement of strenuous activities after fracture healing or the patient’s demand. For children, it is important to remove implant early to avoid disturbances of the growing bone structure. Implant removal requires a second look operation as it may lead to scar tissue as well as increases chances of nerve damage.

Orthopedic Nails, Wires, Pins & Staples used in Bone Fracture

Bones are made up of different connective tissues, which have the ability to heal themselves during a fracture. In the case of children and young adults or mild cases fracture, splints and casts are used for the treatment.

However, in all other cases, open reduction and internal fixation are required for which orthopedic nails, wires, pins, and staples are used to give the bone anchorage points so that it can heal properly. The internal fixation depends on the type of the fracture and which bone and parts of the bone are fractured.

Orthopedic Nails:

Nails are usually used for the fracture of long bones like the femur, humerus, tibia etc. The purpose of nails is to immobilize the bone in the correct alignment so that the bone ends do not overlap. There is no fascia or muscle interspersed between the fractured bone ends and both ends meet each other accurately to promote the callus formation. These are metal rods which are fixed in the medullary canal of the long bones to hold the fractured ends together. These are of different varieties and sizes according to the size of the bone and type of bone. Their varieties include:

Orthopedic Nails

Orthopedic Nails

Enders nail: They may be used for distal femoral, proximal humeral, subtrochanteric region of the femur and tibial shaft fractures as it provides three point fixation.

TENS nail: These are used for diaphyseal fractures of long bones, metacarpal, metatarsal fractures and complex fractures of the clavicle.

Other nail types include kuntscher nail, square nail, and rush nail.

Orthopedic Wires:

Wires are famous among children, for example, k-wires are used in sub-trochanteric fracture of humerus common in children. The wires are flexible and easy to bend and are usually used in the fractures of those bones where weight loading is minimal.

Internal fixation using wires is mostly done for the fractures of the small bones like phalanges, metacarpals, and metatarsal. It is also used for fracture of subparts like condyles of the proximal and distal humerus.

Orthopedic Wires

Orthopedic Wires

Its types include:

Suture wire: It is used for internal fixation and tendon repair.

K- wire: It is used for both temporary, permanent fixation, and skeletal traction.

Orthopedic Pins:

Pins are used to correct soft tissue damage and minimal bone fractures. The purpose of pins is that it provides provisional internal fixation so that it can be manipulated by further hardware use and inaccurate permanent fixation is avoided. It comes in different diameters and according to that, it can aid in screw fixation.

Orthopedic Pins

Orthopedic Pins

Various varieties include:

  1. Steinmann pin
  2. Austin Moore pin
  3. Knowles pin

Staples:

When there is vast damage and bone is broken into fragments then staples can be used between these fragments for internal fixation and bone reconstruction. They are more useful than inter-fragmental screws in these types of cases. Staples are usually used around the joints as in ankle and foot surgeries. These staples are also used in cases of soft tissue damage.

Orthopedic Staples

Orthopedic Staples

U-type stainless steel: These are used for internal fixation and bone reconstruction.

Coventry: It is also used for bone reconstruction and also for repair of soft tissue damage.

Intramedullary Interlocking Nails – An Overview

Intramedullary interlocking nails are used for fracture fixation. During this process, a long metallic implant is integrated through the medullary canal at one end of a long bone. The intramedullary nail may itself traverse a fracture or it may be used as a firm support for other nails, pins and screws that fixate a fracture. Nails are less flexible and thicker as compared to rods that are simple solid cylinders that can’t be fixated with pins or screws.

The nails generally comprise of distal and proximal holes for the insertion of interlocking pins and screws that fixate the implant to the bone. Nails can be both hollow and solid and can have square, circular or more complicated cross-sections.

The large diameter nails require the medullary cavity reaming prior to implantation. Besides, nails can also be located in a retrograde or antegrade manner. This means integration through the distal or proximal end of the medullary canal of a long bone. Usually, retrograde implantation is used for the treatment of the femoral diaphysis fractures.

Intramedullary Interlocking Nails

When nails are implanted without locking pins or screws, then this provides splintage, angulation of a fracture and lateral displacement control. However, this does not offer rotational control. Nails at both distal and proximal ends provide translational and rotational control of a fracture as well as prevent distraction and impaction. This is known as static locking.

When a femur or tibia fracture has healed to a specific degree, then it is possible to remove locking devices at one or the other end so that weight bearing can lead to dynamic compression of the fracture. This is known as the nail dynamization.

There is an extensive range of femoral nails due to the more complicated anatomy of the femur. These nails can be integrated in a retrograde or antegrade fashion.
