Globus Medical launched the AUTOBAHN® Nailing System, increasing its trauma offerings that currently include the ANTHEM® Plating and ARBOR® External Fixation Systems. AUTOBAHN nails are designed to treat fractures of the tibia and femur. The portfolio includes:
- The AUTOBAHN Trochanteric Nail, featuring three neck-shaft angles and instruments with dedicated radiolucent aiming guides. Fracture reduction forceps contribute to system efficiency and provide improved visualization of the femoral head.
- The AUTOBAHN Antegrade/Retrograde Femoral Nail (pictured below) to enable greater trochanter or piriformis fossa surgical entry points. With the incorporation of reconstruction (recon) holes and transverse options, this nail is designed to accommodate more fracture patterns than any other nail on the market. The addition of recon and reverse obliquity holes aims to distinguish this system from its competition.
- The AUTOBAHN Tibial Nail with instruments for the classic infrapatellar approach and the novel suprapatellar approach that is growing in clinical use. It features headless locking screws designed to decrease soft tissue irritation, and SureStart™ threaded fixation to facilitate extreme nailing for stable fracture fixation.
