MedShape DynaNail Shows Successful Outcomes in High-Risk Patients
Date:1/7/2014

n orthopedics where the unique properties of certain materials such as NiTiNOL will be used to our advantage to assist in the healing of bone – complementing both the mechanical and biologic nature of bone healing," said Dr. San Giovanni. "The DynaNail is the first product of its kind and certainly is on the brink of this technology. I've had very good success with the DynaNail in some of the most difficult clinical scenarios where combined arthrodesis of the ankle and subtalar joint was needed. It has become my preferred fixation method when using a nail for TTC fusions. I have been very impressed by its performance and foresee the technology and unique properties of this nail lending itself to many future applications, even for other conditions."

Dr. Eric Giza at the University of California Davis in Sacramento, Calif., has also used DynaNail in three TTC fusion procedures. In his first case he used a fibular autograft, and for the second case he implanted a synthetic trabecular metal spacer due to severe bone loss. At four months, there is evidence of fusion for both patients while the third patient is still outside the fusion window.

"I have found that the maintenance of compression from DynaNail has led to impressive stability for complex cases," said Dr. Giza.

Likewise, Dr. Troy Watson of the Desert Orthopedic Center in Las Vegas, NV has used the DynaNail in one patient requiring a femoral head allograft.

"The capacity of the DynaNail to sustain compression post-surgery is a unique and critical function in TTC fusions where bone resorption will be significant," said Dr. Watson.

DynaNail is the only TTC fusion device to harness the superelastic properties of NiTiNOL. Its internal NiTiNOL element allows for compression to be maintained across the joint post-operatively by automatically adapting
