ENGLEWOOD, Colo., July 24, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Since its inception, Paragon 28 has obsessed over every aspect of foot and ankle surgery. Committed to creating tailored solutions to improve surgical outcomes, Paragon 28 has launched innovative products and instrumentation to help streamline medical procedures, allow surgeons flexibility in technique and approach, and facilitate reproducible results benefitting both the surgeon and patient.
Paragon 28 designed the JAWSTM Nitinol Staple System for use in an osteotomy, arthrodesis and fragment fixation of bones and joints of the foot including fixation of small bone fragments.
The JAWSTM Nitinol Staple System uses superelastic nitinol and a simple insertion method to gain rigid compression across an osteotomy site. Unlike many competitive implants, the JAWSTM Nitinol Staple System has a lightweight titanium inserter that allows the surgeon to fully seat the staple before it is released from the inserter. This allows for final placement of the staple before the staple compresses the osteotomy site.
Achieve compression upon insertion; no heating or electrical activation is required.
A low profile bridge (1.2 mm vs. competitive 1.5 mm or greater) helps minimize soft tissue irritation while the sharp-tooth geometry increases pull out resistance and helps resist migration during healing. Paragon 28 optimized the shape, angulation, and size of the staple legs to distribute compression evenly along the length of the legs. This helps eliminate plantar gapping and ensures consistent force across the osteotomy site.
All instrumentation for the JAWSTM Nitinol Staple System comes in a self-contained, disposable, sterile kit. The JAWS Nitinol Staple comes pre-loaded on the inserter to help facilitate a quick and straightforward surgery.
