Orthofix introduces Centronail, Contours systems in US

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.
