Polarus IM Nail


Polarus Implant Features

A patented array of 5.0 mm proximal holes to allow for secure fixation of the most common multi-part proximal humeral fractures. Each screw is designed with deep cancellous threads for added holding power. Strategic screw locations help avoid the axillary nerve and other key structures. Distal interlocking is achieved with up to two fully threaded 3.5 mm bicortical screws which are self tapping for ease of insertion. Titanium alloy. The tapered tip reduces distal stress concentration. One size 150 mm length. Fully cannulated for ease of placement.
