Wright Medical Group, a global orthopaedic medical device company, has launched the DARCO Foot & Ankle Plating System in Japan.
The DARCO Plating System consists of over 40 different locked plates specifically designed to meet the needs of foot and ankle surgeons.
Wright International Sales and Marketing senior vice president Karen Harris said the regulatory approval and launch of the DARCO Plating System is an important extension of Wright’s strategy to be the global leader in foot and ankle surgical products.
"The DARCO plating line is the first indication-specific fixation product for reconstructive foot and ankle surgery in Japan, and builds on Wright’s powerful Japanese extremity portfolio including the MICRONAIL system for distal radius fractures," Harris said.
"We are committed to bring key technologies and products to this important market and look forward to introducing our other specialized foot and ankle products in the future."
