Synthes 475.940S TI Elastic Femoral Nail-4mm x 440mm

Part # 475.940S Exp 5/15

For fixation of fractures where the medullary canal is narrow or flexibility of the implant is paramount.

This includes:
Lower extremity fractures in pediatric and small-statured patients.
Upper extremity fractures in all patients

Synthes 475.940S TI Elastic Femoral Nail is also intended to treat metaphyseal and epiphyseal fractures, such as radial neck fractures and is intended for fixation of small long bones, such as carpal and tarsal bones

In pediatric applications, the flexibility of the elastic nail allows it to be inserted at a point which avoids disruption of the bone growth plate.

In Perfect sealed condition but past expiration date. Not for human use in the US.

Expiration dates have mostly to do with sterilization and not the integrity of the product. The manufacturers sterilize the products after they are packaged and it lasts so many years. The only products we caution customers about are ones that are absorbable or drug coated.
