Femur / Targon® F

Interlocking nail system for femur

Description

Universal Femur

  • The Targon® F universal interlocking nail for the femur covers all indications for reamed nailing.
  • Classification of fracture localization according to the one-fifth method.
  • Three interlocking holes right at the distal end allow maximum use of this standard method for femoral fixation, even for borderline indications.
  • The anatomical curvature (radius: 2,000 mm) facilitates nail insertion and reduces the risk of cortex perforation or nail torsion.
  • Adapted diameters of proximal nail end and nail shaft avoid additional proximal reaming.
  • The double oblique proximal interlocking holes allow use for both right and left femur. 

Solid Titan Femur

  • The Targon® F solid titanium interlocking nail is recommended for the unreamed primary treatment of shaft fractures in case of severe soft tissue damage. The unreamed femoral titanium nail is indicated in preference to the reamed steel version, especially in polytraumatic patients. Solid nails made of titanium alloy reduce the risk of infection with open fractures. The high capability of the material to withstand alternating loads provides high fatigue strength.
  • The three grooves along the femoral nail allow drainage and thus keep the intramedullary pressure low during implantation. Better endosteal revascularization is possible.
  • Three interlocking holes right at the distal end allow maximum use of this standard method for femoral fixation, even for borderline indications.
  • Continuous flat thread facilitates removal of the screw. Nail wedges in flat thread. No lateral migration. Deep self-tapping thread for opposite cortical layer.
