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.
Post-traumatic arthritis is a common complication following Lisfranc injury. When conservative measures fail, patients may benefit from selective arthrodesis of symptomatic joints. Arthrex provides surgeons with low-profile plates, Nitinol staples, headless compression screws, and biologic augmentation to facilitate a successful fusion.
Lisfranc Injury Fixation
The Lisfranc InternalBrace™ ligament augmentation implant system is a novel technique used to repair Lisfranc ligament injuries. The InternalBrace technique uses a 1.6 mm guidewire through the Lisfranc articulation for less joint disruption. An oblong button is placed on the 2nd metatarsal with collagen-coated 2 mm FiberTape® suture passing through the intraosseous Lisfranc complex and is secured with a 4.75 mm Knotless SwiveLock® anchor in the medial cuneiform.
