Paragon 28 launched its Silverback™ Span Plating System, which was specifically designed to be used in combination with a structural allograft or a titanium cage in cases where a significant void is present at the talus and/or ankle joint. Silverback Span Plating currently includes eight unique plates allowing for various approaches.
All Span Plates are anatomically contoured and are available in standard and long lengths with varying span distances to accommodate different allograft or cage heights required to fill the bone void. A proximal compression slot built into all plates may be used to compress the bone to graft interface. All plates have a transitional thickness to help evenly distribute force across the construct and to help guard against stress shielding during healing. Monster® Ø7.0 mm Screws accompany the system to aid in stabilizing the allograft prior to plate placement.
The addition of the Silverback Span Plating System bolsters Paragon 28's Precision Ankle Solutions product offering, which includes the Gorilla® Ankle Fracture Plating System, APEX 3D™ Total Ankle Replacement, Phantom® TTC/TC Nail System, and Phantom® ActivCore™ Nail System. With this comprehensive portfolio, Paragon 28® provides its customers innovative ankle solutions for trauma, arthritis and limb salvage.
