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.
