Abstract or description
A targeting guide for locating a surgical target site, for example a hole in a distal end of an implanted intramedullary nail, the targeting guide comprising: a first indicator having an identifiable reference point, the first indicator being mounted on a first handle having a first longitudinal axis; a second indicator having an identifiable reference point, the second indicator being mounted on a second handle having a second longitudinal axis; the indicators being radially spaced from one another with respect to said target site and being at least partially radiopaque so that they are imageable such that their respective reference points can be identified; a rig on which the first and second indicators are mountable such that each indicator is independently moveable with respect to the rig along the respective longitudinal axis of its handle, independently moveable with respect to the rig along at least one further axis and lockable with respect to the rig in a selected position along each of said axes; wherein, in use, the reference point of each indicator is capable of being aligned with a reference point of the target site using imaging means, the aligned indicators providing a guide to the target site for a drill, trocar or other surgical instrument or tool.
