Bronze IDEA: DynaClip bone fixation system
The DynaClip bone fixation system from MedShape (Atlanta) provides internal fixating fusion of small bones during surgical procedures in the foot and hand. The bone staple system includes a nickel titanium memory staple, an inserter tool and a universal drill guide. A surgeon creates uses DynaClip to create an anchor hole in each of the bone fragments to be fused and then bridges them with the staple. DynaClip takes advantage of the superelastic properties of nickel titanium by inserting the staple in an opened (strained) state. The result is that the staple provides continuous compression throughout the healing process.
