Stryker launches hip fracture nailing system

Orthopedic

Stryker has launched its new Gamma4 System, a precision nailing device that can treat stable and unstable fractures and stabilize bones. 

Gamma4 includes a precision pin that reduces skiving by 66 percent, a redefined nail design and an integrated platform that allows all of Stryker's nails to work off of the existing basic set. 

"The Gamma4 System features the Precision Pin™, which allows me to control the placement of the Lag Screw while having familiar instrumentation to the T2 Alpha System," David Forsh, MD, an orthopedic surgeon at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York, said in a Sept. 1 press release. "The instrumentation is sleek, the nail design and geometry have been enhanced and the nail facilitates the ease of insertion, which is one of the biggest benefits I have experienced firsthand in the operating room."
