April 2024

Rolf Schneider, Senior Sales Consutant for Trauma for DePuy Synthes in Switzerland needed a surgical technique for removal of a Flexnail by one of his surgeons.

Selcuk Keskinol, BSc, EMBA, Vice President of Ortolog in Ankara, Turkey responded on LinkedIn that he had copies of the surgical and extraction technqiues and provided them to us.  The extraction technique is attached to this listing.  The link is just below the image.

With that information, Rolf was able to find a complete implant set at their European Headquarters in Switzerland.  Note that an adapter is needed for the case.  The surgeon will have what he needs to best take care of his patient.
