Hammertoe Fixation System
Cannulated hammertoe system is comprised of Ø2.5mm implants and single-use disposable instruments, designed specifically for the correction of smaller toe deformities.
HammerThread is a Ø2.5mm cannulated, titanium implant, designed specifically for the correction of smaller toe deformities.
A small and effective portfolio of implants with appropriate design and length options for proximal and distal interphalangeal joint (PIPJ-DIPJ) arthrodesis.
The HammerThread implants were designed to provide surgeons with a minimally invasive and reliable solution to address smaller toe deformities.
The system is comprised of Ø2.5mm titanium Ti64 implants that accept Ø1.3 K-Wires. This combination results in superior precision during insertion and ample stability during the reduction of proximal and distal interphalangeal joints (PIPJ-DIPJ).
The double stinger tip design of the K-Wires also allows for retrograde insertion of the HammerThread implants for both PIPJ and DIPJ fixation.
The instrumentation is provided in a sterile, ready-to-use instrument kit designed specifically for the correction of smaller toe deformities.
The instrument kit includes 4x double stinger tip Ø1.3mm K-Wires, a mini depth gauge, an AO-handle and a cannulated T8 driver with a tapered shaft that matches the implants outer diameter and allows the compression of the PIPJ only without requiring additional hole preparation.
