OrthoPediatrics Launches PediFoot Deformity Correction in the U.S. -

OrthoPediatrics commenced commercial U.S. launch of the PediFoot Deformity Correction System following its FDA 510(k) clearance in 3Q19. PediFoot is reportedly the first pediatric-specific system to address foot/ankle fractures and deformities. It includes small plates and screws to treat cavus foot, flatfoot, clubfoot and hallux valgus deformities with a focus on lateral column lengthening, calcaneal slide osteotomies, opening and closing wedge osteotomies and arthrodesis procedures. PediFoot is the company's first system to employ StarLoc™ variable angle locking screw technology. It also incorporates PediPedal, a combination of non-slip platforms and a handle to enable repeatable, simulated weight-bearing x-rays intraoperatively.
