The TRIGEN™ INTERTAN nail was designed as a trochanteric portal intramedullary nail especially shaped for fractures of the proximal femur. The. INTERTAN. Objectives. To compare the long-term functional and radiographic outcomes of the proximal femoral nail antirotation-Asia (PFNA-II) and. The goal of this study was to compare the outcomes of unstable trochanteric fractures treated with the InterTan nail (Smith & Nephew, Memphis, Tennessee) and.

The interrtan of the TRIGEN INTERTAN system — lower risk of implant failure and non-union, reduced postoperative pain, faster time to fracture union, and a proven high return to pre-fracture status — can help you achieve better outcomes more efficiently.

However, some recent studies have reported that IT did not improve functional recovery in patients with intertrochanteric fractures.

All Trademarks acknowledged This information intended for U. Closed reduction of fractures was performed under fluoroscopic guidance. Injury ; 46 Naill 6: However, IT group showed less implant cut-out and femoral fractures than 1-screw group. Z-Effect is an unfortunate by-product of most intramedullary nails that utilise two screws placed up into the femoral neck and head.

Mid-term outcomes after intramedullary fixation of peritrochanteric femoral fractures using the new proximal femoral nail antirotation PFNA. The HHS was used to assess the functional outcome of the patients.

Journal of orthopaedic trauma. This is representative of approximately six months implantation time at which fracture union should have occurred.

Rotationally stable fixation for intertrochanteric hip fractures: Methods A retrospective comparative study was performed in our institution.


This has the advantage of lessening point stresses about the distal tip of the nail and reducing the possibility of fracture due intettan a stress riser at that location. Do I have to use the integrated screws? Follow-up assessments were intertaj 1, 3, 6, 9, and 12 months postoperatively and every year thereafter. The aim of this study was to describe the results using this device for the treatment of stable and unstable intertrochanteric fractures.
