Paragon 28 launched the PRECISION® Reduction Guide for its Joust™ Beaming Screw System, to perform reduction of the medial column and support placement of the beam.
The patent pending guide positions the K-wire from the head of the first metatarsal to the talus, allowing a 2.0mm thick Gorilla® Straddle Plate to set the trajectory for a beam to pass through without hitting any on-axis plate screws. The straddle plate further reinforces the final construct.
This instrument may allow for reduced interoperative fluoroscopy time, and allows the surgeon to place the preferred beam (cannulated or solid; fully or partially threaded) through the guide while maintaining reduction.
The Joust Beaming Screw comprises solid and cannulated titanium alloy beams in multiple sizes. All beams have a sharp tip for ease of insertion and are offered headless to minimize prominence. Partially and fully threaded options allow for compression or increased thread purchase, as dictated by surgical requirements and patient anatomy.
