X-Bolt

X-BOLT Surgical Technique

Biomechanically Stronger Hip Fracture Fixation

X-Bolt gives biomechanically stronger anchorage with rotational stability, minimum bone disruption, and avoids spinning the femoral head. It is also easily reversible and removable if need be.

Clinical Trials

WHITE 1 and WHITE 4

Clinical studies include the WHITE One (n=100) and WHITE Four (n=1,140) randomized control trials. WHITE One is complete, with a 0% X-BOLT reoperation rate in the published study, and WHITE Four results are expected soon, with results from 4-months post completion of recruitment showing re-operation rate <1% for X-Bolt.
