The Fassier-Duval Telescopic Intramedullary System is a self extending rod designed for patients suffering from Osteogenesis Imperfecta (OI), skeletal dysplasia and other bone deformities. Created to prevent or stabilize fractures, or correct deformity of long bones whilst growth occurs.

The design of the rod includes a female component (which is attached to the proximal epiphysis) and a male component (which is attached at the distal epiphysis). It is available in five diameters: 3.2, 4.0, 4.8, 5.6 and 6.4 mm, up to 420 mm in length.
