AFTron – AF Trochanter Nailing System

The AFTron Trochanter Nail is designed for indications
involving the treatment of unstable subtrochanteric, pertrochanteric and
intertrochanteric fractures.
For shaft fractures in combination with trochanteric fractures the long
version of AFTron nails is available. The nail is combining
many of the features of a dynamic hip screw system and
an intramedullary nail. Three different neck-shaft angles
are available for lag screw insertion to accommodate
various femoral neck anatomy. AFTron nail provides the
surgeon the choice of using the lag screw in combination
with the compression screw or to insert the lag screw in
conjunction with the anti-rotation screw.
The load of the femoral head is transferred from the lag
screw into the nail shaft in order to allow fast fracture
healing. The lag screws are grooved to allow the set screw
to fit into the same and to allow sliding of the lag screw to
the lateral side of the fracture for dynamic bone compression.

The set screw also avoids rotation and medial
migration of the lag screw. In appropriate cases a 5.5
anti-rotation screw can be used in combination with the
lag screw.
Distal locking screws with 5.0 diameter with a self-tapping
tip facilitates easier and faster insertion. The distal locking
screw is provided to stabilize the nail in the medullary
canal and to reduce rotations of fractures.

They can be inserted in oblong holes either for static or dynamic
locking.
