Gotfried PC.C.P.

Description

 
 
 

​​​​​​​ANATOMIC​AL  SITE​: Hip
PROCEDURE: Fractures​​​

Product descrip​​tion

Percutaneous Compression Plating for Pertrochanteric Hip Fractures
The Gotfried PC.C.P uses a minimally invasive procedure and dedicated percutaneous instrumentation to treat ​pertrochanteric fractures without fracture exposure. The instruments, implants and application technique, collectively, contribute to reduced patient trauma resulting in improved ambulatory ability.

Features & Benefits

The PC.C.P technique is designed around four fundamental principles:
  • Closed fractures reduction to a 135° shaft/neck angle
  • Minimally invasive surgery with no exposure of the fracture
  • The provision of rotational stability
  • Prevention of lateral wall fracture and hence of fracture collapse

physician Benefits

  • Minimized operative trauma and blood loss
  • No fracture exposure
  • Provides rotational stability
Patient Benefits​​​
  • Minimally invasive procedures
  • Immediate weight bearing (surgeon advised)
  • ​Reduces postoperative pain
  • Comparatively, studies show decreased mortality1,2​
