About FlexThread™ Fibula Pin System (Prod 1711042)
The FlexThread™ Fibula Pin System provides percutaneous fixation of distal fibula fractures, primarily Danis-Weber B type fractures, or trans-syndesmotic fractures. The distal end of the implant is a flexible, intramedullary screw and the proximal end is a rigid, high-strength intramedullary rod. Upon insertion of the implant into the fibula, the rigid rod portion of the implant spans and supports the fracture and the flexible screw portion bends as needed to thread into the intramedullary canal. With internal screw fixation on one side of the fracture and cross screw fixation through the rod on the other side of the fracture, proper bone alignment and length can be maintained during the healing period. Additionally, the FlexThread™ Fibula Pin is compatible with either screw or flexible fixation of the syndesmosis joint as needed. To accommodate the anatomic size range of fibulas, the FlexThread™ Fibula Pin is available in three different screw diameters, each with two length options. Using routine intramedullary and screw fixation techniques, bone preparation is a simple, three step sequence: place guide wire, ream, tap. Optional fracture site compression is achieved concurrent with insertion of the implant, and delivery of cross fixation screws is facilitated by a guide that connects directly to the implant inserter.
