Houston, TX (PRWEB) September 14, 2011
Instratek, Inc.™ has been synonymous with minimally invasive surgical technologies for over 20 years and today announces domestic launch of the CMC Cable FIX™, a carpometacarpal fixation system.
The CMC Cable FIX™ is a suture button implant designed to stabilize the thumb metacarpal following removal or partial resection of the trapezium. The thumb joint of the hand is the second most common site afflicted by osteoarthritis; however, this disabling condition makes it the most common site for which surgery is sought. The CMC Cable FIX™ is a sterile procedure-specific kit, providing a percutaneous, reliable and quick alternative to traditional Ligament Reconstruction Tendon Interposition (LRTI) techniques. With patent pending SnapLink™ technology, the CMC Cable FIX creates a simplified approach to device implantation. The Instratek CMC Cable FIX™ is intended to provide a stable, pain free thumb articulation for basal thumb arthrosis or instability of the carpometacarpal joint.
The CMC Cable FIX™ is available immediately in the U.S. through Instratek’s distributor-based sales force and by contacting Instratek directly. Visit http://www.cmccablefix.com.
The CMC Cable FIX™ is the newest addition to Instratek’s innovative product solutions for the fields of hand surgery and foot & ankle surgery. Other products include Endotrac-Endoscopic Carpal Tunnel Release System, Endoscopic Trigger Finger Release, Titanium Cannulated Bone Screws, Endoscopic Plantar Fasciotomy, Endoscopic Gastrocnemius Release, Endoscopic Decompression of the Intermetarsal Nerve, MABS – Michelanglo Bunion System, and Sub-Talar Lok Arthroereisis Implant.
