Hansson DC Nail System®
The Hansson Dynamic Cephalomedullary (DC) Nail System is an intramedullary system designed to address trochanteric, subtrochanteric and combined trochanteric-subtrochanteric fractures. The system incorporates new technologies covered by seven patents.
The Hansson DC Nail System provides three different types of intramedullary Nails (Short, Superior Lock & Long) which can be combined with either the Hansson Twin Hook or a Lag Screw for fixation in the femoral head. Both are proven fixation methods when treating hip fractures.
The intramedullary Nails are available in different sizes to give the surgeon full flexibility in selecting the most appropriate implant combination based on the fracture pattern and patient anatomy. The instrumentation provided allows for a minimally invasive surgical procedure and the ability to incorporate axial dynamisation along the axis of the femoral shaft through the creation of a notch in the lateral femoral cortex.
Features and Benefits
- A new dynamic function – Advanced Dynamisation
- A new type of nail – Superior Lock Nail
- Proven proximal fixation – Hansson Twin Hook®
- Lag Screw with a self-cutting compression thread
- Next generation instrumentation
The Hansson DC Nail System is indicated for fixation of stable and unstable trochanteric fractures, including but not limited to non-unions, malunions and actual or impending pathologic fractures of the proximal femur. Long and Superior Lock Nails are additionally indicated for subtrochanteric fractures. Long Nails are furthermore indicated for fractures of the basilar neck and shaft fractures.
