C-Nail Calcaneous Nail
Osteosynthesis of dislocated Calcaneous fractures

Intraarticular fractures of the calcaneus according to Sanders I–IV;
B and C – types according ICI-AO-ASIF Classifi cation.

C-NAIL is an intramedullary nail for minimal-invasive fixation of intraarticular calcaneal fractures. The principle is to stabilize with the nail the four to fi ve main fragments of the fractured calcaneus in conjunction with up to seven interlocking screws and thus creating angular stable fi xation. The maximum of stability is achieved by fi xing the sustentacular fragment towards the nail with two interlocking screws guided by a very precise aiming device.

The design of the nail is separated of the left leg (indicated by “L”) and the right leg (indicated by “R”). The nail length is 65 mm with a diameter of 8 mm. The nail can be extended and closed by an end cap with sizes: 0 mm; 5 mm; 10 mm; 15 mm; 20 mm.

The implants are all supplied unsterile and must be sterilized before operative use.
