Digital Repair System
The Digital Repair System houses all of the necessary instrumentation for the various hammertoe correction lines Arthrex offers:
The DynaNite FlexWire is a two-zone nitinol wire that takes advantage of the superelastic properties of nitinol to improve upon standard K-wire fixation for hammertoe correction. Broken and bent wires are common complications with standard K-wire fixation.1 The superelastic properties of the implanted zone of this wire allow for the same correction surgeons are accustomed to with stainless steel wires, but with the advantage of reducing the risk of permanently bent wires in noncompliant patients. The bendable portion left outside of the toe can be bent, cut, and capped in standard fashion.
DynaNite® Nitinol Compression Plates
The DynaNite nitinol compression plates take advantage of the superelastic property of nitinol to create dynamic compression across a fusion site. Each plate comes packaged with a compression device. When the compression device is removed, the bridge is allowed to widen to its manufactured natural state. As the plate widens, it shortens to compress the fusion site.
DynaNite® Nitinol Guidewires
The DynaNite nitinol guidewires take advantage of the memory properties of nitinol to allow the wires to bend and return to their original manufactured straight shape. Now available in both sterile and nonsterile options, these wires are a simple, but unique, way to increase efficiency in the operating room. The DynaNite nitinol guidewires are offered in .86 mm, 1.1 mm, and 1.6 mm diameters with various lengths, tips, and laser markings to match current stainless steel offerings.
DynaNite® Nitinol Staple
The DynaNite Nitinol staple is a low-profile implant that provides exceptional compressive fixation with easy-to-use instrumentation.The Arthrex DynaNite Nitinol staple is intended to be used for fixation procedures such as LisFranc arthrodesis, monocortical or bicortical osteotomies in the forefoot, 1st metatarsophalangeal arthrodesis, Akin osteotomy, midfoot and hindfoot arthrodeses or osteotomies, osteotomies for hallux valgus treatment (scarf and chevron), and arthrodesis of the metatarsocuneiform joint to reposition and stabilize metatarsus primus varus.
DynaNite® PIP Hammertoe Implant
The DynaNite PIP hammertoe implant is a threaded, cannulated, nitinol solution for hammer toe deformities. The implant barbs are extended by inserting a K-wire and maintain fixation due to the material properties of nitinol. Cannulation allows for surgeons to cross the MTP joint with the K-wire if desired and allows for precision drilling and insertion of the implant. Implants are offered in 12 mm, 14 mm, and 16 mm sizes.
