Tibia Intramedullary Nail (DSBLS)

Providing the advantages of the intramedullary fixation method, the Tibia DSBLS Nail is an intramedullary locking nail system that can provide stabilization in all planes with the alternative DSBLS distal lock design.

multiplan distal locking with DSBLS

12° angled proximal part design

compression up to 4 mm


  • It is adapted for reamed and unreamed applications.
  • It has a wedge-shaped distal tip design.
  • There are 4 locking holes on the proximal, 3 for multi-plan locking, and 1 for compression.
  • The same nail is used in the right and left applications.
  • Because of the design of the distal tip compatible with the distal supporting locking screw (DSBLS);
    • With DSBLS placed through a single incision, distal locking is achieved in all planes,
    • The maximum resistance is provided against axial loading, rotation, translation, and angulation forces,
    • In repositioned fractures, the DSBLS settles easily as the nail is advanced from proximal to distal.



  • In all tibial fractures from 4,5 cm distal to the tibia proximal articular surface to 2,5 cm proximal to the distal articular surface,
  • In cases of poor union and nonunion,
  • In shortening osteotomies,
  • Indicated for use in tumor resections.
