What is the difference of the GANNET compared to the SHS devices?
The main differences are the stability and the invasiveness of the implant. Loading test showed the rotational stability of the GANNET to be 300% compared to the SHS. Also the GANNET is minimal invasive in the femoral head. The volume of the GANNET is less than 50% of the SHS and the cross section even less than 25% combined with a axial load bearing surface of 150% compared to the SHS. Another important difference is the fact that, unlike the introduction of sliding hip screw devices, no torque force at all is exerted on the femoral head on insertion the DLBP, avoiding secondary displacement.
