Compression FT Screw - Chevron
Anand Vora, MD, (Chicago, IL) presents the placement of the Compression FT screw in Chevron and Scarf osteotomies. The titanium headless compression screw, Compression FT, is used for intra-articular and extra-articular fractures and nonunions of small bones and small bone fragments, arthrodesis, and osteotomies. The screws come in 2.5 Micro, 3.5 Mini, and 4.0 Standard. The variable stepped thread pitch headless design allows for simplified insertion, provides compression, and reduces the risk of profile complications. With the headless compression screws, zero-profile stable fixation is achieved in many of the common fracture, fusion, and osteotomy sites throughout the body. The animation highlights the steps necessary for insertion and fixation of a 2.5 Micro Compression FT Screw in metatarsal osteotomies.
