Slim

The SLIM (Simple Locking IntraMedullary)
System is a new generation of pediatric orthopedic nails
specifically designed to create a stable fixation
in long bones with small canal

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

The SLIM (Simple Locking IntraMedullary) System consists of intramedullary fixation devices for use in long bones. The solid shaft and tapered point are designed to facilitate insertion into the medullary canal. Anchorage of the device is achieved through a conical cortical thread, which creates a wedged fixation in the epiphysis in order to reduce the risk of migration. Internal features, such as a hexagonal drive and an internal mechanical thread in the head of the device, allow for capture and guidance during insertion and retrieval. Additional proximal and distal locking holes provide pinning options in poor quality bone.

INTENDED USE

The SLIM System is intended as a temporary implant for alignment, stabilization and fixation of long bones that have been surgically prepared (osteotomy) for correction of deformities, or have sustained fractures due to trauma or disease. This includes the femur, tibia, humerus, ulna and fibula in the pediatric population (child and adolescent) , and patients with small intramedullary canals affected by skeletal displasias, osteogenesis imperfecta or other bone diseases.

ADVANTAGES

Diameter ranges from Ø 2.0 - 6.4 mm
Threaded head designed to reduce risk of implant migrationt
Distal locking option available for additional stability and lengthening over nail procedures
All-in-one instrumentation designed to ease insertion and removal
