The basic requirements for optimal fracture healing are repositioning of the fracture, providing stability and compression and preservation of blood supply. The femoral neck fracture is vulnerable; fixation yields high re-interventions rates, up to 33%1,2. The small volume Gannet fixation system offers optimal stability for the femoral neck fracture, thus creating optimal conditions for primary bone healing and (re-) vascularization, resulting into significantly lower re-intervention rates.
Low volume implant provides maximum space for bone and vascularization
Gannet is a low volume implant when compared to round or screw-in implants
The use of flanges rather than round structures helps reducing implant volume while increasing load carrying capacity
Low volume means more space for bony structures
