Paragon 28 has released its newest allograft solution, the Preserve HammerGraft System, which is its first aseptically processed hammertoe allograft.
Paragon 28 specializes in foot and ankle surgery solutions that help benefit surgeons and patients. The HammerGraft System adds to the Preserve line that is processed without gamma radiation and bleaching and has greater structural fatigue compared to non-gamma radiated allograft, according to a press release.
The HammerGraft System has 4 allograft implants in 2.3 mm and 2.8 mm straight and angled options. The grafts are gathered from the cortical rim of the tibia or femur and are designed to have the same density of PIP joints.
The HammerGraft System allograft implants are also designed to allow proper blood flow to the areas where the implants are. The ribbed graft and the drill diameter are made to reduce cancellous bone crushing and don’t pull out of the implant after implantation. The design also prevents rotation while the tapered ends make it easier for surgeons to insert.
It also offers the market’s first cancellous spacers in 6 mm, 8 mm and 10 mm sizes.
