EFORT INDUSTRY COLLABORATIVE WEBINAR
SANATMETAL: MONEY, TIME AND RADIATION REDUCTION IN INTRAMEDULLARY NAILS’ TECHNIQUE – INNOVATIVE SOLUTIONTO DISTAL LOCKING
The REPLAY of the EFORT Webinar on „Sanatmetal: Money, Time and Radiation Reduction in Intramedullary Nails’ Technique – Innovative Solution Regarding Distal Locking” held on Tuesday 15 February 2022 is now available online!
This EFORT Industry Collaborative Webinar supported by Sanatmetal focused on distal locking of intramedullary nails. Due to an aging population and increasing osteoporosis, the number of fractures and their treatment are expected to nearly quadruple by 2050, of which 6.26 million fractures are predicted for the trochanter alone (upper femur).
The average surgical time of a medullary nail is 60-90 minutes, during the operation 2-3 locking holes should be found under X-rays, which can take 3-5 minutes per hole depending on the surgeon’s practice. Meanwhile the surgeon and the operating staff are exposed to radiation (effective dose limit of 20mSv per year).
The objectives of the Webinar were:
- To deepen the knowledge of different distal locking techniques and highlights as well as the advantages and disadvantages of each.
- To introduce the magnetic targeting system and the distal hand targeting devices which provide a new innovative surgical technique.
- To emphasise that thanks to this unique technique not only a reduction in radiation exposure of the OR team is possible but also a decrease of the OR time and costs.
