Key Features

  • Minimally Invasive

    The nail is inserted in the distal fibula through a minimal incision. Screws are inserted by making stab incisions to protect the soft tissue envelope and preserve vascularity of the periosteum.

  • Anatomically Contoured

    The nail has a 5° bend designed to fit the intramedullary canal of the fibula.

  • Streamlined Procedure

    The surgical technique consists of 8 steps from start to finish, streamlining valuable surgery time.

  • Targeting Guide

    The targeting guide aids in the anatomic placement of both A/P and M/L screws and allows for syndesmotic screw fixation.
