Wright Medical has released its new CLAW II Polyaxial Compression Plating System that uses ORTHOLOC 3DSi Polyaxial Locking screws for stability.
The new system provides more options to make it compatible for a greater number of patient anatomies.
The CLAW(R) II system combines the stability and adjustable compression features of the Company’s patent-pending CLAW(R) plating system with enhanced surgical flexibility afforded by new shape configurations and polyaxial screw positioning.
“Since 2006, the CLAW(R) plating system has combined stable, rigid fixation with controlled joint compression, which are essential when performing fusions in the foot and ankle. The advancements offered with the new CLAW(R) II system, such as variable-angle locking screws and anatomically contoured plates for fusions and osteotomies of the forefoot and midfoot, will enable surgeons to chose the appropriate implants to meet the patient’s unique circumstances,” noted W. Hodges Davis, MD, a foot and ankle orthopedic surgeon with OrthoCarolina Foot and Ankle Institute in Charlotte, NC.
