Launch Of New Cannulok® Plus Femoral Reinforcement System

At BOA the team from Orthodynamics Ltd are pleased to launch the Cannulok Plus Femoral Reinforcement range which will be on show for the first time on Stand 228.

The unique combination of revision hip prosthesis with locking intramedullary nail has now been extended so that it is available in four sizes (11, 13, 15 and 17mm stem diameters) and three lengths (240, 300 and 360mm), offering surgeons a greater choice of solutions. Indications for use include:

  • Management of grossly deficient proximal femurs as a result of osteolysis
  • Reinforcement of the femur where bone stock is depleted as a result of previous surgery
  • Periprosthetic fractures around both total hip and hemiarthroplasty
  • Femoral fractures and fractures around the trochanteric region, complicated by metastatic bone disease
  • Intraoperative fracture of the femur during hip arthroplasty

To assist closed fracture reduction the prosthesis is cannulated with distal locking for improved distal fixation, fully hydroxyapatite coated, is anatomically sided and both standard or 45mm offset options are available. The range offers a choice of modular heads to maximise leg length adjustments or retention of the existing acetabular component.

The cannulated instrumentation had also undergone significant changes, facilitating standard approaches to the hip through the original incision over a well-positioned guide-wire.

Custom stem options to include supplementary distal locking options, anterior screw holes, exaggerated anatomic bow, increased length to 390mm and variations to HA coatings, are also available from our manufacturing site in Dorset.
