PRECICE UNYTE Cobalt Chrome (PRECICE v3.0)
« on: August 20, 2017, 03:40:52 PM »

The PRECICE UNYTE CoCr nail is not available for cosmetic lengthening patients. That will likely happen in 2018. Date unknown. This current version is only for medically necessary treatment.

For people who are unaware, an internal lengthening nail made of cobalt chrome would essentially allow all cosmetic lengthening patients to be fully weight bearing, with crutches, from day one of surgery. Combining all the advantages of the PRECICE nail over its current competitors, with the ability to move unrestricted throughout the lengthening and consolidation phases.

Seems more like a non union nail. The doc in the webinar said that weight bearing for distraction is the same as Precice 2 and then he adds that for non union the nail is full weight bearing.

1. Does anybody know, or is there anyone who could take an educated guess as to how much of a price increase the new Precice will have?

2. Realistically speaking, since its a weightbearing nail, how much of a difference would it make to the time taken to recovery? I was estimating a 6-7 recovery period as I'm doing around 5-6 cms. How much time will I save if I do the surgery with the new Precice?

3. I'm asking this as my funds are going to be ready, and if the new nail doesn't make a material difference, I would rather just order the nails before the new ones are released in order to save on the costs (because I'm reasonably sure they will be at least SOME price increase)

Excellent, thanks a lot. Will this nail allow me to study (full time) and attend classes on regular basis while lengthening? How about work? will it allow people  to go to office and work?  With crutches of course.

Why don't you read a Guichet or Betz diary? Those nails are full weight bearing.

Think about the situation. You have broken legs, possibly in pain, and have to stretch your legs by 1mm everyday.

Going to class? Your gait will look so ugly, this will make you want to stay home. If you're crazy enough to go on campus, imagine the risk of someone bumping into you, causing you to fall and shattering your leg into multiple pieces because of the internal rod.

Betz, Guichet and every other albizzia nail makes lengthening very painful, having an full weight precise nail will truly change the LL after surgery process.

1mm per day will be much better tolerated from the body if you walk everyday, even with crutches, and you cam go to office work from at max 2 weeks after surgery.
This is a revolution and I really look forward to this new nail to do my second LL with that because leaving 4-5 months from my work to do LL with precise 2 means that I should look for another job and I really don't want that.

But I hope that it will be used for cosmetic surgeries too. I can't find any reason why a so capable and modern nail won't be used for cosmetic purposes, as it wil make LL much more easier and safe compared to non weight bearing nails and the albizzia crap.

The best therapy is walking everyday bearing weight, thus you move ankle, knee, hips and do not forget how to walk.
