DePuy Synthes Launches Nitinol Continuous Compression Implants

By Julie A. Vetalice

DePuy Synthes launched Continuous Compression Implants in the EMEA region for use in reconstructive foot and ankle procedures, such as those to treat bunions and hammertoes.

The devices are made from Nitinol shape memory metal, are sterile and pre-loaded onto an insertion tool, obviating the need to heat or freeze implants before use.

DePuy acquired Biomedical Enterprises in 2Q16 for integration into its trauma portfolio.
