What is the Precice Stryde Lengthening System?

The Precice Stryde nail operates like the Precice nail. The main difference is that the Precice Stryde nail is made of steel alloy instead of titanium. As a result, the Precice Stryde nail allows for more weight bearing, even in the early stages of treatment. This enables patients to return to daily activities sooner. To be on the safe side, we still recommend that our patients lengthening with the Precice Stryde system use crutches.

What is the Precice and how does it work?

 The Precice Lengthening System (NuVasive Specialized Orthopedics, San Diego, CA) consists of a telescoping metal rod, called a lengthening nail, with a magnetic motor inside of it. The nail is inserted through a small incision into the bone canal where the bone marrow is found.

The patient is given a special device called an External Remote Controller (ERC) that is used to make the Precice nail slowly lengthen. The ERC has a magnet inside it that rotates. When the ERC is placed against the leg or arm and turned on, the movement of the magnet inside the ERC causes the magnetic motor inside the Precice to slowly lengthen. When the Precice lengthens, the bone also lengthens.

What is the Precice Stryde Lengthening System?

The Precice Stryde nail operates like the Precice nail. The main difference is that the Precice Stryde nail is made of steel alloy instead of titanium. As a result, the Precice Stryde nail allows for more weight bearing, even in the early stages of treatment. This enables patients to return to daily activities sooner. To be on the safe side, we still recommend that our patients lengthening with the Precice Stryde system use crutches.

We have found the Precice to be very effective in helping our patients. In the first 100 bones that we treated, 96% achieved the lengthening goal. In another study that we conducted, patients had lengthening with external fixation and then later had lengthening with the Precice. All the patients in the study preferred lengthening with the Precice over external fixation. They said that they had less pain, found physical therapy to be easier and liked the cosmetic appearance of the leg/arm better after treatment with Precice.
