Designed to treat hip and femur fractures

Stryker announced that the first surgeries using the Gamma4 Hip Fracture Nailing System in Europe were completed at the Luzerner Kantonsspital LUKS, at the Centre Hospitalier Universitaire Vaudois (CHUV) in Lausanne, Switzerland, and at Les Hôpitaux Universitaires de Strasbourg in France. 

The Gamma4 Hip Fracture Nailing System is designed to treat hip and femur fractures. Its nail design is informed by Stryker's SOMA database, which includes over 37,000 3D bone models generated from CT scans. Gamma4 allows for a tailored approach to each patient's unique anatomy and offers several key features to enhance surgical outcomes. The system's intuitive instrumentation streamlines procedures and reduces the number of surgical steps required. The surgeons noted the accuracy of the implant fit and the overall quality of the instruments.
Since these initial use cases, more than 35 additional surgeries utilizing the Gamma4 system have been completed in France, Italy, the UK, and Switzerland. The Gamma4 system is now set to be launched in Germany.
