Though a broken bone, being a living tissue, has a tendency to heal itself provided the broken bone is withheld in the correct position. In the cases where broken bones have to be fixed in the correct and appropriate position, nails, wires, pins, staples and other orthopedic implants play important role by holding the broken bone. The nature of the fracture and kind of bone decides the choice of fixation.
Nails: Various types of nails are designed to suit different requirements. Nails are actually metal rods which are used in the fixation of fractures of long bones. When inserted into the medullary canal, Nails act as an immobilization device to hold the ends of the fractured bone.
Wires: Used in the fixation of fractures where loading is minimal, wires are easier to bend, and therefore, supplemented with other immobilization devices wherever required. Pin or wire fixation is mostly used for fractures of the Phalanges, Metacarpals, Metatarsals, Proximal Humerus and Distal Humerus.
Pins: Minimal bone and soft tissue damages are fixed using Pins by providing provisional fixation and also leaving room for additional hardware placement. To avoid faulty permanent fixation provisional fixation is planned. Depending on the diameter, pins may also be used as guidewires for cannulated screw fixation.
Staples: Used for fragment fixation, where inter-fragmental screw fixation is difficult, Staples are an effective internal fixation method and are widely used in foot and ankle surgery. The staples are also used in fixation of soft tissues to bone.

If you chance to enter an operation theater where orthopedic surgeries are performed, you may feel for few seconds as if you have entered a car repair garage. You will find that hammers, wrenches and other metal tools are being put to work on the human bodies. Most of the orthopedic surgery requires orthopedic implants or devices that replace or support damaged joints or bones in the body. Screws, plates, pins and rods are the most commonly used implants. Generally, metal rods are used to prevent bones from breaking. Orthopedic surgeons, just like experienced car mechanics, rely on their intuition when performing certain procedures.
Plastic, ceramic, stainless steel and titanium are used to make orthopedic implants. These implants can be fixed or screwed into place or alternately the pressure from surrounding muscle and ligaments can be used to do so. In few other procedures like hip replacement both the methods may be used. Orthopedic Implants made from metals usually are lined with plastic, which serves as artificial cartilage.

Hip replacement surgery (also called total hip arthroplasty) is an option if more-conservative treatments have failed and hip pain is interfering with day to day activities. There are so many conditions that can damage the hip joint, often necessitating hip replacement surgery. These conditions include osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis and osteonecrosis. During the hip replacement process, a surgeon removes the damaged part of the hip joint and replaces them with parts that are generally constructed of metal and very hard plastic. This artificial joint or prosthesis not only reduce pain but also improve function.
Hip Prosthesis is a device, which is used to replace the damaged or fractured part of the Femoral head. Hip prosthesis is anatomically designed to match the shape of the femoral head.

NET Cannulated screws can be inserted over a guide wire or guide pin. Since the diameter of the guide pin is much smaller than the cannulated screw, it can be more precisely placed using fluoroscopy in the operation theatre.
Cannulated screws have a hollow central shaft and therefore both cortical and cancellous screws can be cannulated. Cannulated cancellous screws are used for metaphyseal fractures while cannulated and non cannulated cortical screws are used as lag screws for fixation of diaphyseal fractures. Knowles pin, a special kind of cannulated cancellous screw, used for fixation of slipped capital femoral epiphysis in children.
Narang Medical Limited which is one of the leading manufacturer of orthopedic implants and instruments offers Cortical and Cancellous cannulated screws in various lengths and with diameters varying from 2.7 to 7.3 mm.
