Tibia Distale

 

Rail: RATIONALE

Bridge fixation with angular stability plates is the most common method for treating metadiaphyseal and periarticular long-bone fractures of the lower limbs. Delayed consolidation, pseudarthroses, internal fixation device failure and the formation of asymmetrical calluses are often the result of implant rigidity which prevents load transfer to the stumps.

The Rail system is designed to enable use of the most suitable fixation device for the type of fracture. When the system is used in dynamic option, even though resorption and repositioning take place along the fracture line, compression continues to act along the diaphyseal axis, thus enabling physiological consolidation and reducing the risk of failure.

The head of the Rail screw, with cylindrical section, slides in the rail slot in the plate. Not only does this achieve a dynamic system, it also provides more effective lateral stability than seen with conventional hemispherical head screws.


INDICATIONS

  • Complex intra- and extra-articular fractures of the distal and proximal tibia.
