30 Day Trial

OrthoXel Marks First Clinical Use of Apex Tibial Nail


Following its receipt of FDA 510(k) clearance and CE Mark approval as announced in January 2018, OrthoXel's Apex Tibial Nail has now been implanted in the first clinical trial patient.

Apex uses controlled micromotion to stimulate callus formation in pursuit of reduced healing time. The nail offers a large range of locking options (including standard cross-locking, rigid fixation with multiple proximal screw clamping and dynamization locking with built-in torsional stability), and its design requires no changes to established reamed insertion techniques. A reusable kit allows fast implantation in any locking mode.

The company seeks partners to replicate or initiate a similar clinical trial in the U.S.
