Centric Medical, Life Spine's foot/ankle division, initiated a clinical study of the TARSA-LINK™ Stand-Alone Wedge Fixation System.
Launched in 2016, the system is available in a variety of footprints and offered in PEEK and titanium. TARSA-LINK is designed to reduce site irritation due to being flush in the osteotomy site and requires no supplemental fixation, unlike traditional Evans and Cottons Osteotomy procedures.
“Wedge systems have been utilized for many years to correct flatfoot deformities, however outcome studies are necessary to evaluate novel systems such as the TARSA-LINK wedge which is the first option on the market with integrated fixation,” said Dr. Christopher Nicholas, Principal Investigator for the study.
