The Akin osteotomy is usually a component of a primary procedure in which a hallux valgus deformity is corrected. The osteotomy site is fixed with a DynaNite™ Nitinol staple, low-profile …
    • Foot and ankle bio screws and pins 0 small
      • Arthrex offers a variety PLLA fixation options with the Trim-It Screw and Trim-It Pin families.  The Trim-It Instrumentation Set includes the necessary instruments needed to drill, measure depth, tap and properly “cut-to-size” and retaper the tip of the 2.7 mm, 3.5 mm, 4.0 mm and 4.5 mm bio-absorbable Trim-It Screws.   Arthrex …
    • Bunionnette 0 small
      • A bunionette is also known as a Tailor’s Bunion.  It is a painful lateral bony prominence of the 5th metatarsal head resulting in a widened forefoot.  A bunionette can be caused by a large 5th metatarsal head (Type I), lateral bowing of the 5th metatarsal shaft (Type II), or an increase in the 4th and 5th intermetatarsal space …
    • Chevron osteotomy 0 small
      • This osteotomy is commonly used to correct mild to moderate IMA deformities.  A "V" shaped osteotomy is made in the distal first metatarsal with the apex of the "V" pointing toward the MTP joint.  The capital fragment is pushed laterally and fixed in place with a cannulated screw, Trim-It Pin, or Bio-Compression Screw.
    • Dex compression ft screws 0 small
      • 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 help reduce the risk of profile complications, provide compression, and allow for simplified insertion. Surgeons can now achieve zero-profile, stable fixation. …

Surgeons can now achieve zero-profile, stable fixation. …
    • Hallux valgus 0 small
      • The treatment of hallux valgus deformity includes the assessment of the hallux valgus angle (HVA), the intermetatarsal angle (IMA) and the contribution of an interphalangeus deformity. Additionally, there must be an assessment of the presence or absence of arthritic involvement of both the first metatarsocuneiform joint and the first …
    • Hallux valgus correction 0 small
      • Various methods have been described to correct the intermetatarsal angle for Hallux Valgus. Soft tissue correction can be achieved by using the Mini TightRope in conjunction with suturing the lateral capsule of the first metatarsal to the medial capsule of the second metatarsal, incorporating the intervening, previously released …
    • Lapidus halllux valgus correction 0 small
      • The Lapidus procedure is an arthrodesis of the first metatarsocuneiform joint. It is performed most commonly as a method to reduce the intermetatarsal angle (IMA) in the setting of hypermobility or arthritis of the first metatarsocuneiform joint.
    • Mini tightrope 0 small
      • The Mini TightRope® fixation system is a low-profile implant designed to correct a number of forefoot deformities including hallux valgus, Lisfranc disruptions, Tailor’s bunion, and hallux varus. Consisting of #2 FiberWire® suture and two stainless steel buttons, this device improves the care of foot and ankle patients with its …
    • Mini tightrope technique hallux valgus 0 small
      • The Mini TightRope® procedure is useful as an alternative or adjunct method for reduction of the intermetatarsal angle. A FiberWire® and button construct is placed across (distally or proximally) the first and second metatarsals. Reduction of the IMA is obtained with a clamp. The Mini TightRope is tightened and tied.  The reduced …
    • Mini tightrope technique 0 small
      • The Mini TightRope® is a low profile system designed to correct a number of forefoot deformities including hallux valgus, Lisfranc disruptions, Tailor’s bunion and hallux varus. Comprised of #2 FiberWire and two stainless steel buttons, this device improves foot and ankle patient care with its strength and versatility.  A FiberWire and …
    • Minimal invasive surgery 0 small
      • Arthrex has recently launched an entire platform for minimally invasive surgery (MIS) complete with: AR-200 MIS Power Unit – delivering a corded, high-torque, and low-velocity drill with built-in fluid irrigation, ideal for MIS techniques Minimally Invasive Burrs – a variety of burrs, each with a specific surgical …
    • Osteotomy sparing technique 0 small
      • The Mini-TightRope (Osteotomy sparing procedure) for bunions was developed to address acquired soft tissue angular deformity and malalignment where bunions are formed as a result. The TightRope® has been very effective in correcting this angular deformity while eliminating the problems associated with osteotomies.
    • Percutaneous burrs 0 small
      • To meet the trending demand for less invasive surgery, Arthrex offers a specialized power unit for percutaneous surgery along with a vast array of single-use sterile burrs. These burrs are specifically designed to treat various pathologies and procedures including: Transverse and chevron osteotomies of the 1st metatarsal Akin …
    • Proximal metatarsal osteotomy 0 small
      • The powerful proximal first metatarsal osteotomy is commonly performed for moderate to severe IMA deformities. A transverse osteotomy is performed in the proximal 1/3 of the shaft of the first metatarsal taking care to leave the lateral cortex intact.  The osteotomy is then wedged open to close the IMA.  Locking or Nonlocking Plate …
