Trochanteric Nail System
The Arthrex trochanteric nail is a next-generation hip nail that addresses the remaining shortcomings of current systems and consists of three nail types—short nail, long nail, and the innovative ES nail.
Telescoping Lag Screw—Self-contained collapse within the lag screw prevents lateral lag screw irritation.
ES Nail Option—Combines the mechanical advantages of a long nail with the ease of a short nail. It extends through the isthmus of the bone, which can reduce distal tip stress risers, potential “pendulum” effects, and risks of peri-prosthetic fractures associated with short nails.1 The ES hole is easily targeted through the nail jig.
Biological Augmentation—Allows for the delivery of orthobiologics (BoneSync™ cement, autologous blood products, AlloSync Pure™, etc) through the lag screw instrumentation, prior to final screw seating.
Advanced Instrumentation—Designed to reduce surgical pain points and facilitate surgical work flow.

Ankle Fracture Management System
The Ankle Fracture Management System was developed to be the most comprehensive set available for the treatment of ankle fractures. All fibula plates are engineered to work seamlessly with our proven Syndesmosis TightRope® implants.
The set includes:
The system can also be customized to include the FibuLock® fibular nail (an MIS solution for ankle fractures), posterolateral fibula plates, and/or 2.7 mm cortical screws depending on the surgeon’s preferences.
Internal Fixation for Distal Tibia Fracture/Pilon
The distal tibia plates are made of stainless steel and are an extension of the ankle fracture management system. Plates have been designed with concern for the thin soft tissues on the tibia and are low profile with 2.7 mm locking or non-locking screws in the distal portion of each plate. Medial, anterolateral, anterior, posterior and small rim plates complete the plating offering for the tibia. In addition, posterolateral plating has also been designed to be low profile with a 2.7 mm locking screw to minimize peroneal tendon irritation.Learn More
Mini TightRope® Fixation System
Flexible fixation devices like the Knotless Mini TightRope implant afford surgeons an alternative to traditional rigid screw or screw-and-plate fixation for common foot and ankle pathologies, including hallux valgus, Lisfranc injuries, and hallux varus. The Mini TightRope system provides a strong and reproducible construct that stabilizes bones without overconstraining the joint,1 which can lead to early hardware failure and the need for a second hardware removal surgery.
