The Hansson Dynamic Cephalomedullary (DC) Nail System is an intramedullary system designed to address trochanteric, subtrochanteric and combined trochanteric-subtrochanteric fractures. The system incorporates new technologies covered
by seven patents.
The Hansson DC Nail System provides three different types of intramedullary Nails (Short, Superior Lock & Long) which can be combined with either the Hansson Twin Hook or a Lag Screw for fixation in the femoral head. Both are proven fixation methods when treating hip fractures.
The intramedullary Nails are available in different sizes to give the surgeon full flexibility in selecting the most appropriate implant combination based on the fracture pattern and patient anatomy. The instrumentation provided allows for a minimally invasive surgical procedure and the ability to incorporate axial dynamisation along the axis of the femoral shaft through the creation of a notch in the lateral femoral cortex.
