Paragon 28 expanded its foot and ankle specific portfolio with introduction of the Phantom® ActivCore Hindfoot Nail. The PRECISION® Guided ActivCore Nail addresses a tibio-talo-calcaneal arthrodesis. It is the second of four hindfoot fusion nailing systems that the company plans to launch in 2020. The first was the Phantom Hindfoot TTC/TC System.
The titanium alloy Phantom ActivCore has an outer sheath with a proximal Flex Coil tip and inner sliding core which allows for constant active compression. Phantom ActivCore Nails come in 22 size options with three diameters and four lengths.
PRECISION Guide technology supports reproducibility when placing a 3.0 mm Drill-pin from distal to proximal, through the center of the calcaneus and up to the tibia.
The ActivCore Nail is implanted utilizing the carbon fiber Phantom® Ghost™ Outrigger. The radiolucent and inlay features of the Outrigger allow for visualization of Peg trajectory under fluoroscopy prior to drilling.
