The Apex Femoral Antegrade Nail is fracture fixation reinvented – the first and only femoral nailing system to feature micromotion fixation and ultimate rigid locking for outstanding intraoperative control. Published papers show that femoral nonunion and delayed healing are clinical challenges and micromotion may contribute positively to these clinical scenarios.
The Apex Femoral Nailing System has FDA 510(k) clearance for use in the United States.
Antegrade Locking Options
Unique Axial Micromotion
Micromotion fixation creates a biomechanically optimal construct for secondary bone healing by promoting callus formation as shown by compelling clinical evidence. This innovative approach to construct biomechanics is available only in Apex nails and is achieved using a patented gliding insert system. This meticulously designed and precision-engineered construct allows controlled axial motion with industry-leading torsional stability.
Anteversion of Screws into Femoral Head
Varying anteversion angles distributes fixation in the proximal femur.
Ultimate Rigid Locking
Rigid locking is designed for clinical scenarios that demand enhanced stability and construct stiffness. A unique locking endcap engages the patented insert system to simultaneously lock all proximal screws, regardless of chosen orientation, for ultimate rigidity.
Proximal Mediolateral Screw
Compression and interlocking across the femoral neck can be achieved with the most proximally positioned mediolateral screw on the market. Opening and reaming instrumentation is shared with the Apex Tibial Nailing System, so only one extra tray is required for surgical use.
