MICRO SCREW

Overview

The management of small fractures in the hand and wrist is difficult due to the small size, fragile nature, and importance of accurate reduction. The requirement to use clamps and forceps while maintaining position for implant preparation and insertion is challenging. 
 
The fully cannulated Micro Screw system is designed to address these challenges and make the management of small fractures easier. With increased implant strength at a smaller scale and cannulated precision, surgeons can accurately reduce fragments with small diameter k-wires while maintaining positions for single shot insertion of a definitive implant that generates adequate compression to facilitate healing.

 

Key Features

Built on the values of precision and strength, the implant design accommodates a simpler, faster repair that offers an alternative to k-wires and the associated complications.

Design: Fully cannulated design for single shot insertion, reinforced head geometry for strength during insertion and compression and an optimised lagging geometry. 

Fixation: Immediate compression with definitive and rigid fixation at a small scale. 

Range: 1.5mm and 2.0mm diameter options ranging in length from 6mm – 22mm at 1mm increments. 

Material: Manufactured from Titanium alloy for strength and biocompatibility. 

Clinical Uses

  • Finger, Thumb, Metacarpal and Wrist.
  • Intra and extra-articular fractures. 
  • Fractures, osteotomies, and arthrodesis of small bones in the hand and wrist.
