Distal Femur / Targon® RF
Retrograde femoral nail
The distribution of reaming debris in the knee joint is avoided by opening the joint with the hollow reamer.
Sufficiently recessed placement of the implant prevents protruding implant edges. As a result of the ventral and dorsal oblique surfaces of the Targon® RF, the nail recess can be kept small, leaving more space for interlocking.
Angular play in the metaphysis and screw sliding can cause excessive instability in the fracture area. This is prevented by locking the distal screw with the closure screw.
The transfixation of the fracture on the distal shaft fragment via the fourth screw cancels shearing motions between the metaphyseal and shaft fragments.
