Orthopedic Clinical Cases Using The Large Flat Panel Integrated C-Arm


In orthopedic surgical treatments such as spinal and long bone fractures, obtaining a larger field of view and clearer images of the fracture site can help doctors promptly understand and evaluate the alignment and orientation of the fracture site during surgery. It also allows for length and angle measurements, providing strong support for further improving surgical quality.

Perlove Medical has been deeply involved in the field of C-arms for 19 years, possessing multiple invention patents and mature technologies, with a leading market share in the industry. At the end of 2021, Perlove Medical integrated advanced technologies and launched the large flat panel integrated C-arm – PLX119C. With a wider field of view and clearer images, it brings a superior experience to clinical practice!

Clinical Cases of Orthopedic Surgery with Large Flat Panel Integrated C-arm

Patient: Male, 43 years old, underwent intramedullary nailing fixation surgery for left femoral shaft fracture

Hospital: Nanjing Ying Tian Orthopedic Hospital

The femur is the main weight-bearing bone of the lower limb with its unique anatomical relationship and well-developed surrounding muscles. Therefore, improper treatment of femoral shaft fractures can easily lead to muscle traction, resulting in deformity and functional impairment. Treating femoral shaft fractures requires restoring limb length and alignment, minimizing rotation, using minimally invasive techniques whenever possible, and protecting local blood supply to the fracture to promote healing. Intramedullary nailing provides greater stability and firm fixation for fractures, reduces iatrogenic contamination, and minimizes soft tissue disruption and disruption of surrounding blood supply, helping to promote early fracture healing. It is the preferred treatment method for femoral shaft fractures.

C-arm Assisted Surgical Procedure

During the surgery, the Perlove Medical large flat panel integrated C-arm is used for fluoroscopy to assess the fracture situation and the positions of implants such as Kirschner wires and intramedullary nails, and to make adjustments accordingly. The accurate intraoperative positioning of the C-arm significantly shortens the duration of the surgery, reduces patient discomfort, and assists in the smooth completion of the surgery.

During intramedullary nail fixation procedures, doctors need to simultaneously observe the entry point of the nail and the fracture site. The Perlove Medical large flat panel integrated C-arm, with its 30cm × 30cm flat panel detector, provides a broader imaging area, meeting the imaging needs for most long bone intramedullary nail fixation procedures.
