Indications

The PFNA with a well-proven design is indicated for fractures involving the proximal femur.

PFNA

  • Petrochanteric fractures (31-A1 und 31-A2)
  • Intertrochanteric fractures (31-A3)
  • High subtrochanteric fractures

PFNA long

  • Low and extended subtrochanteric fractures
  • Ipsilateral trochanteric fractures
  • Combination fractures (in the proximal femoral)
  • Pathological fractures

Features and Benefits

PFNA blade

  • Rotational and angular stability achieved with one single element.
  • Compaction of cancellous bone: additional anchoring to the PFNA blade, which is especially important in osteoporotic bone.
  • Increased stability caused by bone compaction around the PFNA blade retards rotation and varus collapse.
  • Biomechanical tests demonstrated: a significantly higher cut-out-resistance of the PFNA blade.
  • All surgical steps required to insert PFNA blade are done through the lateral incision.

PFNA nail

  • The design has been proved more than 200,000 times with the PFN nail and guarantees an optimal fit in the femur.
  • The PFNA instrumentation offers the possibility of static or dynamic locking for standard and small size nails.
  • For long PFNA there is also the option of using a secondary dynamic locking slot.
  • The flexible tip eases insertion and avoids stresses at the tip of the PFNA.
  • The medial-lateral angle of 6ยบ allows insertion at the tip of the greater trochanter.
