A preassembled embedded locking mechanism

The Phoenix Retrograde Femoral Nail System features CoreLock Technology that offers a preassembled locking mechanism that allows the four distal screws to be mechanically locked which is designed to provide enhanced distal femoral fixation.

Minimally invasive

  • The CoreLock technology allows four distal screws to be mechanically locked to provide distal femoral fixation. 

Ease of use

  • CoreLock Technology eliminates freehand insertion and set screw grooving allows for screw removal without disengaging the set screw. 


This nail incorporates a 1.8m radius of curvature and a 5-degree distal bend for ease of insertion. Distal screws can be removed without disengaging the embedded setscrew since the holes within the setscrew are grooved.


CoreLock Technology

  • CoreLock Technology allows four distal screws to be locked to help minimize lateral screw impingement. The locking mechanism is preassembled within the nail, therefore eliminating freehand insertion.


5mm Double-Lead Thread Screws

  • Composed of titanium alloy with a self-tapping tip, this screw features a double-lead thread design intended to provide quick insertion and bicortical purchase.


End Caps

  • 3.5mm Inserter connector retains head of the end cap designed to facilitate easier insertion. End caps are offered in 0mm,5mm, 10mm, 15mm, and 20mm sizes.
