The systems were designed specifically for children by pediatric orthopedic surgeons with a high level of focus on extraction instrumentation. Each system is inclusive of all the screws inside a single case and tray and was designed to specifically follow procedural flow to reduce time in the operating room and increase efficiency. Additionally, the new systems were optimized with upgraded instrumentation and color coding to aid in selection of associated instrumentation for a given screw diameter.
The 2.5mm, 3.0mm, 3.5mm, and 4.0mm screw system is indicated for fixation of fractures and non-unions of small bones and small bone arthrodesis. The 4.5mm and 5.5mm screw system is indicated for fracture fixation of long bones and long bone fragments.
Joe Hauser, OrthoPediatrics’ Vice President of Trauma & Deformity Correction, commented, “We are excited about the domestic release of our next generation cannulated screws, which provides pediatric orthopedic surgeons another superior option for treating fractures and arthrodesis in children. Our dedication to improving the lives of children around the world continues to drive our state-of-the-art pediatric solutions.”
