Surgeons around the world have found TriLock 1.5 to be a great problem solver.
Kennett Square, PA (PRWEB) September 09, 2011
Medartis is pleased to announce the addition of new, smaller, locking plate options to the APTUS Hand Fixation System. The TriLock 1.5 locking plates and screws, designed to address fracture treatment of phalanges, set a new standard in low profile, angular stable designs. The 0.8mm plates utilize the unique Medartis multidirectional (±15°) locking technology to provide unparalleled intra-operative options to address comminuted, intra-articular fractures and fractures close to the joint, as well as improved stability in osteoporotic bone and arthrodeses.
On Thursday, September 8 during this years’ annual meeting of the American Society for Surgery of the Hand (ASSH), Randy R. Bindra, MD, FRCS demonstrated the TriLock 1.5 plates during PDW 19, “Surgical Approaches for Internal Fixation of Hand Articular Fractures.”
Norman Eckley, President, Medartis, Inc. is excited about the launch of TriLock 1.5: “The addition of the TriLock 1.5 plates has made a significant impact on our business. Until recently, the Medartis APTUS Hand System was the only locking plate and screw system available for treatment of metacarpal and phalanx fractures. Medartis, as a pioneer in variable angle locking technology since 2002, created the unique design now incorporated in the TriLock 1.5, the smallest variable angle locking plate available. Surgeons around the world have found it to be a great problem solver.”
Medartis, AG, with world headquarters in Basel, Switzerland, is a company with a 50 year heritage. It pioneered variable angle locking and continues to develop plate and screw technologies for upper extremity fracture treatment. With TriLock, Medartis was the first company to offer a fully modular, multidirectional and angular stable hand fixation system – a trend that has now become state-of-the-art in hand surgery.
