Orthofix International has introduced Centronail Ankle Compression Nailing (ACN) and Contours Lapidus Plating System (LPS) systems in the US.
The Centronail ACN system, which features two-piece targeting assembly, is used to treat patients suffering from debilitating pain and incapacity as a result of arthritis, trauma, and diabetes.
The ACN also independently controlls compression of the tibiotalar and subtalar joints.
The Lapidus surgical procedure is comprised of a tarsometatarsal (TMT) joint fusion to treat patients with debilitating pain and discomfort that typically accompanies hallux valgus (bunion deformities).
The Contours LPS incorporates a plate design contoured specifically for the TMT and the anatomical forces at that joint which restorates the biomechanical properties and healing.
