The R3LEASE Stabilization System was designed to allow the syndesmosis to heal while a low-profile head limits soft tissue irritation.

While broken and loose screws have demonstrated improved patient outcomes as compared to intact syndesmotic screws1, the location of screw breakage can be unpredictable with some breakage causing osteolysis from adjacent bony erosion leading to pain and difficult removal2.

The R3LEASE Stabilization System was designed so that if screw fracture occurs, the screw breaks cleanly in the clear space at the notch point. Multiple removal features allow the surgeon to remove the screw fragments medially or laterally, if necessary.
