Surg'X offers the first angle-stable, anatomical titanium veterinary interlocking nail for the treatment of long bone fractures in small animals.
Interlocking nails are the gold standard in human long-bone trauma, thanks to their biological and mechanical advantages over plates. Their intramedullary insertion, which is particularly suited to minimally invasive approaches, preserves soft tissues and vascularization of the periosteum. The mechanical resistance in compression, bending and torsion of an interlocking nail construct, which is much greater than that of a locking plate, is particularly interesting in the treatment of comminuted fractures.
However, their use in dogs and cats has not yet been widespread due to the technological limitations of the products previously available to the veterinary segment.
