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.

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.

Interlocking Nails used for Fracture Fixation

Intramedullary Interlocking Nails – An Overview

Interlocking Nails used for Fracture Fixation

The femur and Tibia are two of the longest bones in the human skeletal system. A fracture in long bones like these, need supporting rods, or as we call them interlocking nails. It is a metal rod forced into the medullary cavity of a bone to fix and support the fractured bone.

The intramedullary rod or Küntscher nail as it was called named after the person Gerhard Küntscher who first used the device in 1939 during the World War II. He used it to fix the fractured femur bones of the injured soldiers. Prior to that, the method of treatment was very long and required the patient to be inactive for long periods. They were either treated by using a plaster or traction. The invention of intramedullary rod changed the pace of recovery of the patient to much faster and more stable.

What are the Interlocking Rods made up of?

Proximal Femoral Nail (PFN)

The earlier rods were made up of stainless steel. However, now most companies use titanium to make these rods. The advantage of titanium over steel is that it has lower mechanical failure rates and is biocompatible with the body. There was also the change in the design from the earlier rods by introducing the concept of locking nails using bolts on each end of the nail. This was more durable and fixed the bones with better strength.

Does the Insertion of the Rod in the Human Body cause any Complication?

In most cases there are no complications after the insertion of the rod in the human body but there may be long term complications in some of the patients. These complications may include knee pain, atrophy of the calf muscle, atrophy of the quadriceps, and arthritis. There are also chances of Venous thrombosis and pulmonary embolism.
