    Yes. Both the Threaded Hand Nails and the accompanying instrumentation are supplied non-sterile and must be sterilised at the user facility. The system should also be cleaned prior to sterilisation, with full instructions on the process provided with the product.

    No. Prior to use, it must be checked whether the patient has osteoporosis, sepsis, an infection, insufficient bone quality/quantity, or material sensitivity. If any of these conditions are present, the nails should not be used.

    There are a range of potential adverse events associated with the use of the Threaded Hand Nail system. This may include pain, swelling, stiffness, nerve/soft tissue damage. Care must be taken during the procedure the nail is not subjected to excessive force, prolonged loading, or excessive activity, as this could lead to breakage. Surgeons must evaluate the level of appropriateness for using the THN system based on their knowledge and experiences.
