The Arthrex iBalance® HTO System utilizes a PEEK implant and anchors versus the metal plates and screws traditionally used in proximal opening wedge osteotomies.
- Implants intended for permanent implantation. Reduces need for 2nd surgery to remove hardware.
- Implant sits flush to cortical bone. Eliminates soft tissue irritation caused by prominent hardware.
- Specialized instrument system creates a safety “envelope”, allowing the surgeon to create all cuts safely and reproducibly while significantly reducing chances of neurovascular injury and lateral hinge fractures.
