The new system features a posterior offset and solid nail construct to help enhance the performance, stability and reliability in hindfoot and ankle fusion cases. It offers resistance through an independent, 6.5 mm IBS Headless cannulated compression bone screw. The variable compression occurs through an included targeted guide to greater compression of the tibia and talus bones.
“Innovation that solves long-standing problems and shortcomings in both surgical technique and outcomes is the goal of our entire product line at In2Bones,” said Jon Simon, senior VP of marketing at In2Bones. “The TriWay TTC Nail System gives surgeons the best tools available to address these complex surgeries.”
Surgeons have a variety of anatomic designs, lengths, diameters and screw options to choose from. Its 5 mm, partially-threaded Cotter screws perform like bolts when compared to traditional threaded nail screws that can end up disrupting screw and nail engagement.
“This new product from In2Bones will be a major advancement to my surgical practice,” Dr. James J. Sferra, from Allegheny Health Network in Pittsburgh, said in a press release. “The posterior offset and solid nail construct allow me to place the implant into the ideal zone of the calcaneus and provides a very stable construct. The TriWay system provides excellent compression to an area that often can be difficult to fuse. It is a significant improvement upon early generations of fusion nails.”
