The Arsenal ankle plating system — the latest addition to the Enovis suite of foot and ankle products and an expansion of the Arsenal foot plating system, consists of 37 anatomically designed plates throughout nine plate families to accommodate any ankle fracture.
According to a news release, the Arsenal system offers variable angle locking technology designed to allow a 60° cone of angulation, multi-lock functionality, accepting repeatable lock and relock of screw to plate interface, and dual lead screws. Enovis said it makes for a “powerful combination” of patented and innovative solutions addressing a number of types of fracture personalities.
Dr. Matthew Herring, a Redding, California-based orthopedic surgery specialist, said in the release that the plates “are stout where it matters and sleek where needed,” offering surgeons a difference-maker when treating complex ankle and distal tibia fractures in the operating room.
“Our Arsenal product line was created to disrupt existing technology,” President and GM of Enovis Foot & Ankle Gary Justak said. “In addition to the standard ankle fracture plating options available today, this system features multiple solutions for malleoli fractures, including a modernized spin of the proven AO technique of tension band wiring. These are just a couple of reasons why we are proud to introduce this system as we continue our growth journey in the foot & ankle market.”
