Patella Fracture System

The Patella Fracture System includes everything needed to repair transverse patella fractures. The 4.0 mm blunt-tipped cannulated screws were designed specifically for patella fractures. In addition, FiberTape® suture has been attached to 5 in needles designed to pass through the screws, subsequently allowing for its use as a tension band. This construct has been shown to be stronger than the traditional K-wire with cerclage wire constructs.1

The set includes everything needed to perform a traditional repair. Innovative instruments are included along with sternal wire drivers, Weber clamps, drill guides, and Stout wire cutters, giving surgeons all necessary instruments needed in one convenient set. Unique to this set is an adjustable parallel offset guide, a C-ring drill guide with an incorporated measurement device, and a cerclage wire passer to effectively pass wire through the quad and patellar tendons.
