The wedges are intended to be used as an implant specifically designed for Evans procedures (for lateral foot column lengthening) or Cotton (improve the inclination of the first radius and avoid overloading the external column). These wedges allow very precise control of the amount of lengthening or declination of osteotomies.
The material of these wedges is the OsteoSinter® porous titanium, manufactured using the powder metallurgy technology. The material is pure biomedical grade titanium, and has a porosity of 65%. The shape of the porosity mimics the trabecular bone, thereby inducing a great osteointegration of the surrounding bones through the interconnected porosity: 57% of bone colonization is achieved after just 4 weeks of implantation.
The porous structure of the material and the relief shape of the surfaces provide a high primary fixation to the bone.
OsteoSinter® EVANS and COTTON wedges are offered in 15 sizes which, in comparison to unconfigured allografts, reduce the surgery time and remove its planning cost.
The OsteoSinter® EVANS and COTTON wedges are placed using a single-use instrument kit, which include a tweezer, an impactor and a set of sizers used to choose the right size for each patient.
The HemiCAP® implants intraoperatively recreate the patients' articular cartilage surface convexities. This unique mapping technology enables the surgeon to place the implant so the implant becomes part of the patient's natural curvatures - both in the medial to lateral aspect as well as the anterior to posterior plane.
RegJoint™ is indicated for arthroplasties in small joints in hand and foot for patients suffering of rheumatoid arthritis or osteoarthritis. The specific target joints are metatarsal I-V, V (MTI I-V) in foot, carpometacarpal (CMC I) and metacarpophalangeal II-V (MCP II-V) joints in hand.
