MedShape commenced full market release of the DynaNail Mini® Fusion System for medial column fusion to address Charcot Foot and other severe midfoot conditions. The system features MedShape's NiTiNOL technology and is reportedly the first internal fixation device designed specifically for medial column fusion that offers maintained active compression post-surgery to promote bone healing and joint stability.
Originally launched in 2019 in 60-100 mm lengths for subtalar fusion, this latest version is now offered in longer lengths (110-140 mm) to allow for more stability and post-operative NiTiNOL compression across the midfoot bone anatomy.
DynaNail Mini, with its internal NiTiNOL Element, can maintain up to 6mm of post-operative compression in response to bone resorption or settling.
"This new version of the DynaNail Mini signifies a major milestone in further expanding MedShape's NiTiNOL nail technology beyond the hindfoot into other foot and ankle and trauma applications including midfoot," said Kurt Jacobus, Chief Executive Officer of MedShape. "We have been pleased with the clinical performance of the DynaNail Mini so far and are excited to offer another surgical solution for limb salvage to orthopaedic surgeons."
