The intramedullary nail has been the standard for long bone fixation in medicine since the 1970’s.
BioMedtrix, working in conjunction with Dr. Loïc M. Déjardin from Michigan State University, has developed the first angle stable nail specific to the veterinary patient.
I-Loc Angle Stable Nail
- utilizing contemporary trends in elastic fixation, the I-Loc Nail has a novel hour glass shape for increased elastic motion which has proven to significantly lessen fracture healing time concurrently reducing post-operative complications.
- capable of treating diaphyseal and metaphyseal fractures in the humerus, tibia and femur, and correction of long bone deformities and patellar luxations.
- currently available in 3 diameters: 6mm, 7mm and 8mm in varying lengths.
