Features & Benefits


  Features Benefits
  Advanced nail design The new nail design offers great flexibility
  • One system for retrograde and antegrade technique
  • One system for left and right femur
  • Anatomic bend for ease in insertion and extraction
  • Cannulation of all nails for guided insertion in reamed and unreamed technique
  • Large portfolio with nail diameters ranging from Ø 9.0 to 15.0 mm and lengths ranging from 160 to 480 mm
  • Versatile locking configuration for static, dynamic, standard and spiral blade locking 
  Unique distal locking options The unique distal combination hole enables the optimal locking for every anatomical situation and fracture type. The surgeon can intraoperatively choose between spiral blade locking (with one spiral blade and one locking screw) and standard locking (with two locking screws). The end cap with self-retaining Stardrive recess allows for angular stable locking of the most distal locking implant in both configurations.
  End caps
  • Self-retaining Stardrive recess for effortless and secure end cap pick-up and insertion
  • Possibility to block spiral blade or most distal (retrograde) or most proximal locking screw (antegrade) for absolute angular stability
  • End cap prevents ingrowth of tissue and facilitates nail removal
  Locking screws
  • Double thread for more contact points leading to enhanced stability
  • Larger cross-section for improved mechanical resistance
  • Thread closer to screw head providing better bone purchase and improved stability
  • Self-holding Stardrive recess for effortless and secure locking screw pick-up
  • Titanium alloy TAN for improved mechanical and fatigue properties
  • Adapted locking screw diameter to nail diameter:
  • Ø 5.0 mm for nails Ø 9.0–13.0 mm
  • Ø 6.0 mm for nails Ø 14.0 and 15.0 mm
  Spiral blades
  • Optimal hold in osteoporotic bone by increased surface area
  • Angular stable locking by end cap
  • Titanium alloy TAN for improved mechanical and fatigue properties
