Acumed’s Fibula Nail 2 System is designed to provide an alternate treatment to bone plating by offering a less invasive intramedullary approach to fibula fractures. This approach can reduce soft-tissue irritation compared with plating through traditional open reduction internal fixation (ORIF). The system, which is available in new diameters and 4 new lengths, offers a universal instrumentation base set, making it possible for 1 set to support multiple intramedullary nail families. The nails feature contouring to accommodate the shape of the intramedullary canal, while Acumed’s proprietary Tip-Loc™ technology achieves stabilization of the nail’s far end through a sized bushing and set screw combination, allowing for fracture rotation and length control. The system also offers updated instrumentation, including carbon fiber radiolucent targeting guides to streamline the procedure, threaded holes within the nail for interlocking constructs, and headless hexalobe screws designed to minimize soft tissue irritation.
