Unique Design Features

LagshieldTM Function

Altior Trauma Innovations patented Lagshield Technology adds a protective layer of CFR PEEK to the lateral side of the Artemis nail preventing the lag screw reamer from notching the load bearing titanium core of the nail during the lag screw reaming procedure, reducing the risk of creating a stress riser and nail fracture.

Radiolucent Proximal End

The radiolucent proximal end of the nail provides better radiographic visibility of the femoral neck in an oblique medio-lateral image.

Lag Screw and Set Screw Function

The self cutting thread design of the Artemis lag screw allows for large surface contact of the cancellous bone. This potentially provides high resistance against cut out. The Artemis lag screw is designed for easy insertion.

The set screw is designed to fit into one of the two grooves of the shaft of the lag screw. This prevents both rotation and medial migration of the lag screw.

The nail allows sliding of the lag screw to the lateral side for dynamic bone compression at the fracture site to potentially enhance fracture healing.

Technical Features

The Artemis Proximal Femoral Nail System encompasses four implant components. All components are available in sterile packaging only.

The proximal femoral nail kit, short, consists of the Nail and a preassembled Set Screw. The nail has a diameter of 11mm at its distal end and 16.4mm at its proximal end. It comes in one length of 180mm and one centrumcollum-diaphyseal (CCD) angle of 125°. It has a ML bend of 4°. Its universal design is intended for left and right application.

The cannulated set screw, which prevents rotation of the lag screw, is already preassembled in the proximal end of the nail.

The nail is constructed of a titanium alloy core encompassed by injection molded carbon fiber reinforced (CFR) polyether ether ketone (PEEK). The set screw is made of titanium alloy.

Advanced Targeting Device

The targeting device consists of only one part, sparing the effort of assembling various components before use.
