Great News for Florida Patients in need of an Ankle Fusion

DynaNail® Is An Ankle Fusion System With Lower Risk Of Complication Or Nonunion

You may know it by several terms . . .

  • Ankle fusion
  • Hindfoot fusion
  • Tibio-talo-calcaneal (TTC) arthrodesis (fusion)

. . . but if you are a patient in need of an ankle fusion, you should know that not all arthrodesis nails are the same. Compression of a fusion site is critical in ensuring joint stability and promoting bone union. However, many fusion system designs are highly susceptible to a loss of compression or loosening. They potentially loose up to 90% of their compression when the bone is reforming itself after surgery. This can result in arthrodesis failure (or nonunion) and it’s attendant complications.

DynaNail® adapts to these post-operative changes in bone structure.  DynaNail® maintains compression better than these other nails, and it reduces the risk of complications.

An Ankle Fusion System That Maintains Compression After Surgery

The DynaNail® TTC Fusion System is designed for foot and ankle fusion procedures to address degenerative conditions, correct joint deformities, and revise failed total ankle replacements. The groundbreaking nail system incorporates an innovative super-elastic internal nickel titanium element. This element automatically adapts in response to changes in bone and joint structure after surgery.

THE EVOLUTION OF INTRAMEDULLARY NAILS FOR HINDFOOT FUSION

Hindfoot fusion nails have evolved in conjunction with the increasing knowledge of factors that lead to successful fusion. This evolution is driven by the need for a simple and robust application of compression across the joints and exemplified by several generations of intramedullary nails in clinical use.

Early 1st generation hindfoot fusion nails offered no means of applying compression but rather served to statically lock the nail into the bone with screws.

2nd generation nails allow for external manual compression to be applied using compression rods through the frame. Studies have shown that this form of intramedullary nail fixation results in loss of compression upon removal of installation frame.1

Internal compression was introduced with 3rd generation IM nails using an internal screw to press against a talar or calcaneal screw. While able to retain compression after instrument removal, these nails lose compression in the presence of bone resorption.

Utilizing the superelastic properties of NiTiNOL, the DynaNailrepresents the NEXT generation of intramedullary nail fixation by maintaining compression after surgery for up to 6 mm of bone resorption or settling. In addition like older generation intramedullary nails, 6 mm of manual compression can still be applied during surgery.
