Field Orthopaedics Gains FDA Clearance for 1.5mm Micro Screw -

Field Orthopaedics received FDA 510(k) clearance to market a micro screw system for fixation of fractures, osteotomies and arthrodeses of small bones in the foot, hand and forearm. Field Ortho reportedly spent $600,000 and 18 months moving the screw from concept to clearance, and has outsourced most elements of U.S. distribution to Ortho Sales Partners. Future products include a range of power tools and a bone cement designed to eliminate infection following orthopaedic procedures. (Australian Financial Review, 8/15/18)
