Stryker Launches Gamma4 Hip Fracture Nailing System in Europe

Stryker has launched the Gamma4 Hip Fracture Nailing System in most of the European markets, providing surgeons with the next generation of Stryker’s intramedullary nailing system. The Gamma4 system, which received the CE certification in Europe in September 2023, is designed to treat hip and femur fractures and streamline procedural workflows for surgeons.

The Gamma4 System has been used in over 25,000 cases in North America and Japan and is indicated for the treatment of fractures in the intracapsular, trochanteric, subtrochanteric and shaft regions of the femur (including osteoporotic and osteopenic bone). Key features include:

  • A Redefined Nail Design: Designed using our SOMA database of over 34,000 3D bone models generated from CT scans1, Gamma4 has a chamfered distal tip, a 5mm shorter proximal body compared to Gamma3, and a length-dependent radius of curvature (RoC) for long nails2, enhancing anatomical fit and usability.
  • Improved Workflow: The Precision Pin™ offers more resistance to pull out, and the potential for skiving is reduced by 66% compared to a standard ∅3.2 K-wire.3
  • Integrated Instrument Platform: Gamma4 and T2Alpha nails now all work on the same instrument platform, standardizing surgical procedures.

The new Gamma4 system redefines hip fracture care with sleek instrumentation, advanced nail design and improved geometry collectively, ensuring a lasting impact on orthopaedic practices for years to come,” said Dr. Gilbert Taglang, chairman of the OTCF Education Committee.
