OrthoPediatrics introduced the next-gen PediFlex™ Advanced elastic nailing platform, featuring a modified flexible nail in a variety of diameters and lengths, offered in stainless steel and titanium.
PediFlex Advanced is intended for fixation of diaphyseal fractures of long bones where the medullary canal is narrow or implant flexibility is required—such as upper extremity fractures in all patients, and lower extremity fractures in pediatric or small stature patients.
This system is among five launches planned for 2018. Others include a small stature Response scoliosis plate, small stature BandLoc polyester sublaminar banding system, an osteogenesis imperfecta nail and a pediatric foot system.
