Novastep launched Pecaplasty®, a guided instrumentation and implant platform for percutaneous bunion correction. The system is designed for precise realignment, accurate stabilization and reproducible outcomes.
In 2019, Novastep launched their minimally invasive (MIS) PECA implants, combined with specialized instruments, to perform percutaneous bunion corrections. The procedure offers benefits including tri-planar deformity correction combined with a novel method of stabilization, however this technique often involves a steep learning curve.
Pecaplasty represents enabling technology designed to diminish the learning curve and reduce the challenges faced with a percutaneous technique. This instrumented solution for hallux valgus allows for translation of the metatarsal head and precise orientation of the implants to stabilize the correction as the bone heals.
The introduction of Pecaplasty marks the first of its kind in the percutaneous technique for hallux valgus correction and provides a long-awaited addition to the Trident Guided Bunion Instruments portfolio.
