By Julie A. Vetalice

aap Implantate received FDA 510(k) clearance to market LOQTEQ® VA (variable angle) calcaneus plates 3.5 for the treatment of heel fractures. Launch will begin in 2020.

The polyaxial implants allow insertion of angle-stable screws at different angles, offering flexibility in fracture treatment. The system contains plates in two different sizes and designs, with a low profile height of 1.6 mm and type II anodization that contributes to the comfort of users and patients.

The company is preparing to file for CE Mark approval in Europe.
