OrthoPediatrics this week said it launched its Large Fragment Cannulated Screw System in the U.S.
The screw system is designed to address trauma procedures and treat children with Slipped Capital Femoral Epiphysis. The system features screws in 2mm increments, screw thread run out in the head of the screw, dual lead threads and threaded cannulation.
Large Fragment Cannulated Screws are available in 6.5mm and 7.3mm diameters and are designed for pediatric fracture fixation of large bones and fragments such as femoral neck fractures, tibial plateau fractures, sacroiliac joint disruption, intercondylar femur fractures, subtalar arthrodesis and fixation of pelvis and iliosacral joint.
“We are excited about the domestic beta release of our new Large Fragment system and look forward to supporting physician adoption. This launch represents our continued commitment to provide our surgeon customers with innovative technology to treat a wide variety of pathologies that are unique to children,” trauma product director Jeff Mebel said in a news release. “We have the privilege of partnering with excellent physicians and their input has represented a valuable part in bringing this system to market.”
