The Apex Femoral Nail is fracture fixation reinvented – the first and only femoral nailing system to feature micromotion fixation as well as recon and interlocking fixation modes for ultimate intraoperative control. New screw trajectories provide unparalleled freedom of choice to tackle the most complex clinical scenarios. This combined antegrade-retrograde piriformis entry implant system features an anatomically optimized curvature nail for right or left compatibility for streamlining inventory and instrumentation. The Apex Femoral Nailing System has FDA 510(k) clearance for use in the United States and is also CE Mark cleared for the European Economic Area.
Antegrade Locking Options
Unique Axial Micromotion
Micromotion fixation creates a biomechanically optimal construct for secondary bone healing by promoting callus formation. 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 axial motion with industry-leading torsional stability.
Choosing between ascending descending or mediolateral screws or bolts provides multiple interlocking options to stabilise and optimize fixation for a wide range of femur fracture types.
Proximal Rigid Locking
Rigid locking is designed for clinical scenarios that demand enhanced stability and construct stiffness. A unique 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.
