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

to loading changes due to settling or resorption. In addition, the ultra-low axial stiffness of the NiTiNOL element automatically dynamizes the joint, and mitigates stress-shielding that is universal to all other intramedullary nails on the market. Dr. Samuel Adams from Duke University in Durham, N.C. first used DynaNail based on its sustained compressive power. Dr. Adams has implanted DynaNail in five patients, all using a bone allograft.

"The DynaNail is an unrivaled orthopedic device and my implant of choice for hindfoot arthrodeses," stated Dr. Adams.  "No other hindfoot fusion device allows for intraoperative compression and accounts for postoperative bone resorption through sustained dynamic compression. It's amazing to 'see' the DynaNail at work!"

Compression across the joint is important for not only ensuring the bones remain in close apposition, but also in promoting healing. According to Dr. Daniel Latt from the University of Arizona in Tucson, Ariz.,

"The DynaNail is the perfect alternative to a multiplanar external fixator in the treatment of failed hindfoot fusion. It is the only internal device capable of generating continuous compression to stimulate growth of the fusion mass."

Dr. Latt has performed four TTC fusions using DynaNail, all in combination with a cancellous bone allograft. Three patients have shown evidence of fusion at three months post-operation while the fourth patient is still in the early stages of recovery. The DynaNail TTC Fusion System will be available for full release beginning in January 2014.
