Paragon 28 Launches Silverback Posterior Plating System

The Silverback™ Ankle Fusion Plating System now offers three distinct approaches:  anterior, lateral or posterior. The Posterior Plating System includes 16 low profile,  anatomically contoured plates to address soft tissue closure and accommodate varied patient anatomies and deformities. All plates are delivered in one case and tray, with all joint perpetration instrumentation to complete the arthrodesis.

The launch bolsters Paragon 28's Precision Ankle Solutions offering, which includes the Gorilla® Ankle Fracture Plating System, APEX 3D™ Total Ankle, Phantom™ TTC/TC Nail and Phantom™ ActivCore Nail.

Albert DaCosta, Paragon 28's President and CEO, said, "We are excited to add these complementary plates to the Silverback™ Plating System. This will allow us to continue to provide versatile optionality to handle the needs of these hindfoot fusion patients. Working with our design team, we built on the success of the lateral and anterior plates with directed crossing screws and optimized compression to provide an ideal option for the posterior approach. These anatomically designed plates work with the hindfoot anatomy and provide stability to the tension side of the joint."
