In2Bones commenced global launch of the TriWay TibioTaloCalcaneal (TTC) Nail Arthrodesis System. The design features a posterior offset and solid nail construct intended to enhance performance, stability and reliability during hindfoot and ankle fusion.
Specifically, TriWay provides the ability to control variability in the level of bone compression, which is needed for a successful fusion. Control is regulated by a novel, independent 6.5 mm IBS headless cannulated compression bone screw. Variable compression is achieved through a targeting guide.
This launch closely follows the U.S. commercial launch of the ClearGuard LE Endoscopic Soft Tissue Release System (pictured below). Delivered pre-sterilized and fully disposable, ClearGuard is designed for use in high-volume soft tissue releases of the lower extremity, including the plantar fascia, gastrocnemius, tarsal tunnel and Morton’s neuroma.
The system is compatible with a standard 4mm 30° arthroscope. Its combination of a clear cannula and blocked endpoint offers an alternative to competitive products that limit visibility and potentially increase the risk of nerve and tissue damage prior to tissue release.
