PFN PFNA PFNA2 TFN differences and features


Tfn TFN is made of a stainless steel 316L type. The system consists of a cannulated nail, cannulated hip screws 8 millimeters and 6.4 millimeters, locking bolts (4.9 millimeters). The proximal diameter of the nail is 15 millimeters and length is 180 millimeters. The diameter varies from 9 to 12 millimeters. The angle between the nail and screw used is either 130 and135 . Distally there are two holes for static and dynamic locking.
