Nextremity Solutions Launches Stratum MPJ Plates

By Julie A. Vetalice

Nextremity Solutions commenced full commercial launch of the Stratum™ MPJ Plating System, an extension to its Stratum Foot Plating System.

Stratum MPJ includes twelve plates with both 0-degree and 7-degree options to treat fractures, nonunions/malunions, etc. in first metatarsophalangeal joint of the foot. It joins Nextremity Solutions' current offerings of the Stratum Foot Plating, Stratum Lapidus Plating and InCore® Lapidus systems to address deformities and traumatic injuries, developed with the company's i3® Strategic Solutions micro-commercialization strategy of collaboration with surgeon designers and evaluators.

Stratum Foot Plating includes Lapidus and MPJ plates and screws that were FDA 510(k) cleared earlier this year. An application for CE Mark approval is pending. The InCore Lapidus System is a three-part construct for internal fixation for First Metatarsocuneiform arthrodesis.

Ryan Schlotterback, Chief Technology Officer of Nextremity Solutions, said, “We are pleased with the recent clinical success with the Stratum MPJ system and the continued adoption by our surgeon customers.  Surgeons appreciate the combination of features that allow for efficient trialing and placement of the plate with the ability to dial in desired compression prior to final fixation.  The Stratum MPJ Plating System further builds on the Stratum family of plates and we are excited about the additional applications in the pipeline.”
