AUDUBON, Pa., Sept. 24, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Globus Medical, Inc. (NYSE: GMED), a leading musculoskeletal solutions company, today announced the launch of the AUTOBAHN® Nailing System. This comprehensive platform provides advanced clinical solutions for fractures of the tibia and femur.
The AUTOBAHN® portfolio includes the Intramedullary Trochanteric Nail, Antegrade/Retrograde Femoral Nail, and Tibial Nail. These new nail offerings are part of Globus Medical’s expansion into the Trauma market over the past 24 months. “Globus’ ability to understand our customers’ needs and to innovate in this space allows us to provide instruments and solutions not previously available to today’s surgeons,” says Barclay Davis, VP of Trauma. The AUTOBAHN® Nailing System complements the available ANTHEM® Plating and ARBOR® External Fixation Systems, and expands the Globus Medical Trauma Portfolio.
- The AUTOBAHN® Trochanteric Nailing System offers treatment for trochanteric and femoral neck fractures. Three different neck-shaft angles are available to accommodate varying femoral neck anatomy. Streamlined instruments featuring dedicated radiolucent aiming guides and unique fracture reduction forceps offer system efficiency and provide improved visualization of the femoral head. Radiographic markers embedded in the targeting arm allow nail anteversion alignment for optimal placement.
- The AUTOBAHN® Antegrade/Retrograde Femoral Nailing System enables greater trochanter or piriformis fossa surgical entry points. With the incorporation of reconstruction (recon) holes and transverse options, this nail is designed for more fracture patterns than any other nail on the market. The A/R nailing system provides fixation for common femoral shaft fractures as well as the benefit of recon holes and reverse obliquity holes for fractures requiring more comprehensive fixation. The addition of recon and reverse obliquity holes distinguishes this system from its competition.
- The AUTOBAHN® Tibial Nailing System includes instruments for the classic infrapatellar approach and the novel suprapatellar approach that is growing in clinical use. The system features novel headless locking screws designed to decrease soft tissue irritation. SureStart™ threaded fixation is incorporated into the nail to facilitate extreme nailing for stable fracture fixation. Instruments including the one-piece Suprapatellar Cannula reduce the amount of procedural steps.
