Tyber Medical is excited to announce regulatory approval for the TyFix All-in-One Extremity Joint Fixation device, an innovative system that eliminates the use of the ancillary instrumentation for a wide range of bone fixation procedures, including hammertoe correction. The integrated implant/instrument design, (first of its kind) creates value by minimalizing the number of procedure steps, improving operating room efficiency, and significantly reducing procedure time. In addition, the all-in-one sterile-packed device eliminates traditional reprocessing costs.
The TyFix Screw combines a highly optimized bone thread with a barbed head to maximize bone purchase and compression in both the proximal and distal phalanges. The system delivers intra-operative flexibility by offering solid and cannulated implants with diameters ranging from Ø1.5 - 4.0mm in multiple lengths as well as a straight and an angled 10 degree option.
"The TyFix system is the first device to fully integrate all instrumentation and implant into a unitary implant-instrument combination while also delivering a strong, robust construct, an efficient procedure, and minimal surgical time," commented Jeff Tyber, CEO of Tyber Medical. He added, "The company continues to focus and enhance our distal extremity platform, is dedicated to accelerating the path to market for our private label customers and is always striving to add value through innovative solutions."
