Smith & Nephew (SNN) launched CONQUEST FN™, an implant to treat femoral neck fractures and promote bone preservation.
CONQUEST FN is designed to address challenges that can lead to complication rates as high as 69% in femoral neck cases. To alleviate inadequate fixation, SNN collaborated with FxDevices, developer of the POGO® telescoping compression screw that supports post-op continuous fracture compression. Coupled with a proximal femoral locking plate, the system offers an additional level of dynamic locking fixation.
SNN is the first company to utilize POGO, which received initial FDA 510(k) clearance in 2008.
