Paragon 28 Launches Silverback Straddle Plating

Paragon 28 is pleased to announce the launch of its Silverback™ Straddle Plating System designed to supplement the Phantom® Hindfoot TTC Fusion Nail allowing surgeons to create a plate and nail construct for tibiotalocalcaneal (TTC) or tibiocalcaneal (TC) arthrodesis. This first in kind off the shelf solution allows for anterior, posterior and lateral approaches for primary and revision fusions where there is concern related to patient health, compliance and time to fusion.

The Silverback™ Straddle Plating System includes 12 unique plates available in flat and contoured options to accommodate variations in anatomy and all plate screws have the option to drill on-axis or off-axis up to 15°. The Phantom® Hindfoot TTC Nail should be inserted and compressed in a static mode prior to Straddle Plate placement. All plates have a transitional thickness and are widened to accommodate the Phantom® TTC Nail which aids in evenly distributing force across the construct and guards against stress shielding during healing.

The addition of the Silverback™ Straddle 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 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.
