Paragon 28 expanded its ankle fusion portfolio with launch of the Phantom® Hindfoot TTC/TC System to address tibiotalocalcaneal (TTC) and tibiocalcaneal (TC) arthrodesis, the first of three hindfoot fusion nailing systems that the company plans to launch in 2020.
The nails are made from Type II Anodized Titanium Alloy in three diameter and five length options. Proximal ends feature a flex coil design for flexibility and stress sharing as the implant is positioned into the contouring of the tibial canal. Pegs are inserted from posterior to anterior and medial to lateral, eliminating the need to take down the fibula.
Phantom uses PRECISION® Guide technology to place a Ø3.0 mm drill-pin from distal to proximal, through the center of the calcaneus and up to the tibia. The system also includes the Ghost™ Outrigger for visualization of peg trajectory prior to drilling.
The system includes full instrumentation to address joint preparation and restoration of anatomic alignment.
