The system consists of five plate families that are designed to address traumatic fractures and osteotomies of the ankle. Plate options include Lateral Fibula, Posterior-Lateral Fibula, One-Third Tubular, Medial Tibia and Posterior Tibia. The plates also come with 2.7 and 3.5mm cortical screws and are offered with the company’s CoLink VAL – Variable Angle Locking Technology.
“This comprehensive set allows me to fix any pattern of ankle fracture,” Dr. Travis Hanson, a surgeon at Houston Methodist Orthopedics and Sports Medicine, said in a press release. “It has every type of plate and screw combination that I need. The contoured design of the new CoLink Afx System provides increased confidence that my patients will receive a plate that fits their specific anatomy. These are the most low profile place that I have used around the ankle.”
In2Bones’s new titanium plates are designed to have an anatomically low profile and are type II anodized. They offer a stronger smoother surface than standard color anodization used in other plates on the market. The plates are also ultra-thin with minimal prominence at the plate and screw head interface to give protection against soft tissue irritation.
“We’re very excited about the commercial market release of the CoLink Afx System,” Jon Simon, SVP of marketing at In2Bones, said. “Expanding our portfolio into the high-volume ankle fracture market with a truly best-in-class product provides tremendous growth opportunities for us heading into 2019.”
