Point here is a balloon expandable intramedullary fixation system: Photodynamic Balloon Stabilization System (balloon light dynamic stabilization system). PKP before being placed in the body and used much like a balloon, strip, soft, non-metallic, insert the canal, after reaching the desired position, push syringe injection whole canal expansion, and fit with the inner wall of the canal, hardness strengthened, obtain stable fixing.
