Bio-Compression Screws


Bio-Compression Screws are versatile and may be used to treat a broad range of indications in both lower and upper extremities. Designed with a stepped pitch and taper, this screw draws two fragments together using straightforward instrumentation for drilling and tapping. Made of solid enhanced PLLA material, the BCS absorbs over time without losing strength during insertion or through the critical phases of healing. With Bio-Compression Screw technology, zero-head-prominence above the cortex and zero image on x-ray is possible, creating a very natural repair. Offered in two families, 3 mm and 3.5 mm, the 3 mm screws range in two millimeter lengths from 16–26 mm. The 3.5 mm screws are fully cannulated and come in two millimeter lengths from 16–32 mm with a variable proximal diameter.

Applications in the foot and ankle include OCDs, fractures, osteotomies and arthrodesis of the tarsals, metatarsals and phalanges. From bunion correction to trauma management, the Bio-Compression Screw provides excellent compression and holding power maintained throughout the normal healing period. For lower extremity surgery, the Bio-Compression Screw may be inserted either percutaneously or in an open procedure. Accurate placement of the screw can be ensured by using the cannulated instrumentation in the set.
