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.
Compression FT Screws Technique
The titanium Compression FT (fully threaded) screws come in 2.5 mm Micro, 3.5 mm Mini, 4.0 mm Standard, 5.0 mm Large, and 7.0 mm XL. The variable-stepped thread pitch and headless design helps reduce the risk of profile complications, provides compression, and allows for simplified insertion. Surgeons can now achieve zero-profile, stable fixation. The Compression FT family of screws now offers 5 diameters and 91 screw lengths to fit various orthopedic applications throughout the body.
Medial Malleolus Osteotomy
The Ankle Fracture Management System contains both the Medial Hook Plates and Cannulated Screws in stainless steel for Medial Malleolus Osteotomy procedures. 4.0 mm titanium screws can also be used out of the QuickFix cannulated screw set or 4.5 mm Trim-It Screws for a bio-absorbable option.
Arthrex has a long standing partnership with leading tissue banks to provide fresh osteochondral allografts (OCA) for use in joint restoration procedures. Fresh OCA’s allow the surgeon to transplant mature, hyaline cartilage with viable chondrocytes and subchondral bone in a single procedure. Arthrex has the Allograft OATS Workstation to provide more flexibility in preparing the OCA in the operating room.
Retrograde Drilling for Talus Lesions
The GPS Targeting Drill Guide, which was developed to complement the Ankle Arthroscopy Instrument Set, enables precise placement of K-wires for ankle arthrodesis and a multitude of other applications. Additionally, the drill guide can be used for effective retrograde drilling of osteochondral lesions.
