TAN Nail



The TRIGEN TAN is used for the same indications as the standard TRIGEN FAN. Both antegrade femoral nails are designed to accommodate a standard femoral locking mode or the Recon locking mode in the same leg. Utilizing the same TRIGEN instruments, the TAN was developed to simplify the surgical approach by allowing placement of the nail through the greater trochanter instead of the piriformis fossa. The proximal section of the implant is 13 mm and is angled at 5° to accommodate the more lateral entry site. Screw placement for the reconstruction mode is at the standard 130°. The nail has a 12° anteversion and an anterior bow to match the femur.


Made of Titanium
An alloy that offers strength, and biocompatibility  
Color Coded Implants Lime green for Left, Rose for Right. Proximal section is color-coded in TAN to distinguish from FANnails
12° Anteversion Allows the distal screws of the implant to be located in a more medial/lateral plane for easier insertion.
5° Proximal Bend Allows the nail to be inserted through the tip of the greater trochanter for an easier surgical approach.
135° Recon Screw Angle For easier placement of two 6.4 mm Recon Screws into the femoral neck.
Distal Slot Allows the fracture to be dynamized while maintaining rotational stability.
Patented 5-hole Proximal Design Allows the implant to be used in the same leg in a standard femoral or Recon mode for more intra-operative options.
Anterior Bow To match the bow of the femur for easier insertion and proper anatomical reduction.
Cannulated -Round Shape Allows the implant to be inserted over a ball-tipped guide rod and aids in removal.
Unique diameter choices
Standard sizes are 10 mm, 11.5 mm and 13 mm diameters. Addresses many without carrying a large inventory of implants.
