Kalamazoo, Michigan-based Stryker designed its EasyFuse dynamic compression system to decrease surgical complexity, provide strong dynamic-compression implants and reduce waste in the operating room.
The company created the system using nitinol, a nickel titanium alloy metal known for strength and shape recovery. It has an extra-wide staple bridge designed to distribute forces and provide consistent strength, as well as universal, sterile packed instrumentation to decrease surgical complexity and reduce material waste in the OR, according to a news release.
EasyFuse’s intuitively designed inserter offers surgeons confidence in implant deployment while also facilitating quick and easy implant reloading if desired, Stryker said.
“The EasyFuse dynamic compression system is another key addition to Stryker’s innovative foot and ankle product portfolio, expanding options for surgeons,” Stryker VP of Marketing and Medical Education for Foot and Ankle Michael Rankin said in the news release. “We are pleased to provide a new premier staple technology to our customers that has the potential to improve patient outcomes.”
