OrthoPediatrics launched the 6.5mm/7.3mm Slipped Capital Femoral Epiphysis (SCFE) Cannulated Screw system. The company previously received FDA 510(k) clearance for expanded indications of its next generation Cannulated Screw System.
The OrthoPediatrics 6.5mm/7.3mm SCFE system has been completely rethought and designed. The system offers flexibility to treat pediatric specific SCFE injuries with fully threaded screws and partially threaded screws for common trauma indications.
Unlike other systems on the market, the OP fully threaded SCFE screws are available in 2mm increments, providing the surgeon more options to treat pediatric populations with an implant that fits correctly instead of simply making do with what is available. The screws also incorporate useful features that can help surgeons if they choose to remove the implant. With this addition, OP now offers cannulated screws in 2.5mm, 3.0mm, 3.5mm, 4.0mm, 4.5mm, 5.5mm, 6.5mm, 7.0mm and 7.3mm sizes with various thread lengths to service almost all needs of the pediatric surgeon.
