Medline UNITE launches New Foot/Ankle Implants

Medline UNITE Foot & Ankle commenced U.S. launch of its Calcaneal Fracture Plating System and IM Fibula Implant. The launch provides a comprehensive titanium foot and ankle trauma system to address nearly all fractures requiring ORIF with plate and screw fixation.

The Medline UNITE Calcaneal Fracture Plating System enables surgeons to handle a broad array of fracture patterns, surgical approaches, and anatomical variations from a single tray. The system is comprised of multiple implant options, including standard, offset, and extension Sinus Tarsi and Perimeter plates, as well as new, large fully threaded 5.5mm and 7.0mm headed cannulated screws. The system also comes equipped with a Sinus Tarsi Extension Plate Inserter, allowing for easy plate insertion and positioning through a sinus tarsi incision, enabling percutaneous screw placement in the posterior tuberosity.

The IM Fibula Implant joins the Medline UNITE Distal Tibia System as a standard option. The novel implant provides surgeons with a new option to treat patients with transverse fibula fractures requiring intramedullary fixation, often associated with distal tibia fractures.

"Obtaining FDA clearance and launching these new implant systems comes on the heels of several other recent, successful launches, including the UNITE Jones Fracture Screw System, UNITE Distal Tibia Plating System, and SYNDEX™ with Constrictor® Technology Knotless Syndesmosis Implant System," said Scott Goldstein, Director of Marketing at Medline UNITE Foot & Ankle.
