Reinforced, cemented modular stems are available as an option
Wide choice of modular stems available. Following the failure of a knee prosthesis and/or osteosynthesis with loss of function of the extensors, arthrodesis may be the only surgical option for stabilizing the joint. Implantation of a LINK Endo-Model Knee Fusion Nail enables fast and loadable mobilization of the patient. Loss of leg length can also be limited in this way.
The LINK Endo-Model Knee Fusion Nail is placed like a coupled knee prosthesis with stem. In the event of infection, targeted topical antibiotic treatment is achieved via the cementing. The Knee Fusion Nail comprises of a femoral and a tibial component. The two components are stably connected by a special coupling. In the modular version, it can be combined with both cemented and cementless modular stems.
The stems of the cemented version are tapered, but have three flat planes for anti-rotation securing in the cement bed. The implant components are given an anatomical curvature of 5° flexion immediately after coupling. Centralizers ensure correct intramedullary positioning at each end of the nail.
