Small Bone Phantom® 3-Hole Intramedullary Nail Added to Already Robust Offering for the Lapidus Arthrodesis Procedure

Small Bone Phantom® 3-Hole Intramedullary Nail Added to Already Robust Offering for the Lapidus Arthrodesis Procedure

Surgeons face a variety of challenges and complications in bunion correction with a Lapidus procedure: - Prominence of hardware creating patient discomfort - Generation and maintenance of compression at fusion site to allow for primary healing - Plantar, medial, and lateral gapping at the ...
Cut guide system specifically launched to control bone resection while addressing IM reduction in a Lapidus procedure

Cut guide system specifically launched to control bone resection while addressing IM reduction in a Lapidus procedure

In a 1st tarsometatarsal (TMT) joint arthrodesis, there is a risk of over shortening the first ray due to over-resection of bone or an inherently short first ray. Attempting to create cuts to achieve the precise amount of IM correction while simultaneously creating congruent surfaces to ...
