OrthoXel Cleared for Femoral Nailing System in Europe

Nov. 29, 2018

OrthoXel received the CE Mark for its Apex femoral nailing system, marking another clearance for the device after it recently received a nod from the FDA.

The device, used for fixating femoral fractures, gives physicians numerous locking options, such as the company’s patented micromotion for controlled axial movement that encourages callus formation.

The system, which is implantable in either leg at the hip or knee, can also provide rigid interlocking used for unstable proximal fractures in the femur.
