ODi-NA’s exclusive Talon™ technology eliminates distal locking screws and provides superior fixation in the femoral head. Proximal Fixation The lag screw’s Talon™ technology enables the surgeon to maximize proximal fixation through greater rotational control, enhanced compression, and increased resistance to cutout versus a traditional lag screw. Distal Fixation The Talon™ DistalFix™ technology results in less.
ODi’s 7.0mm Cannulated Screw system is available for those fracture types that the Talon™ CHS and Talon™ Distafix™ Nail cannot treat: High femoral neck fractures.
A self-cutting tip and self-tapping flutes gives the custom titanium alloy cannulated screw its aggressiveness. These characteristics provide the surgeon the ability to place the screw quickly and easily. In the event of hard bone a tap is provided. The instrumentation is cannulated to allow for a purely percutaneous technique. Nested drill sleeves allow the insertion of a 3.0mm guide wire, a 5.0mm drill, and the screw through a single stab incision and without switching instruments. To distribute forces in osteopenic bone 13.0mm washers are available in the tray.
The Talon Compression Hip Screw provides significantly enhanced compression and rotational stability by allowing better purchase of the proximal fragment.
The Talon™ Compression Hip Screw (CHS) seeks to optimize patient outcomes by providing twice the compression and a threefold increase in rotational stability over traditional lag screws.
Plates are available in a wide variety of sizes, angles, and barrel lengths to best meet the demands of the fracture and each patient’s unique anatomy. The most proximal screw can be angled superiorly to capture medial comminution, if present.
The Talon™ lag screw is designed to deploy its talons into the calcar femorale region, allowing the surgeon to fully compress the fracture, thereby, reducing non-unions and providing a more solid construct.
