The unique locking nail for small medullary canal patients
The Gap endo-exo medullary systemTM consists of an intramedullary nail linked to a lateral buttress plate, via lag and mechanical screws, creating a combined Endomedullary / Exomedullary osteosythesis device. This novel approach of osteosynthesis creates a load sharing system between the nail and plate, thus limiting the risk of stress fractures and improving the implant stability in weak bones.
The Gap endo-exo medullary system is used for the treatment of fractures or correction of deformities in the femur, tibia and humerus of pediatric patients, who have reached skeletal maturity. Indications include:
