The majority of intramedullary hip screws sold in the U.S. are made with titanium over stainless steel due to gaining great acceptance in the surgical community as a popular option. Titanium is gaining popularity, owing to the growing acceptance of the higher biocompatibility and lower weight in comparison with stainless steel or cobalt/chrome alloys. The increased costs associated with using titanium products was a strong factor in the size of the market and its growth.
Intramedullary (IM) hip screws are hybrid devices, incorporating aspects of intramedullary nails and conventional hip screw design. They are inserted into the femur at an angle similar to that of hip screws, but instead of being anchored by a plate external to the shaft of the bone, IM hip screws are anchored inside the medullary cavity. The screws are designed for intertrochanteric or subtrochanteric fractures of the hip. IM hip screws are also known as dynamic hip screws (DHS).
