TriMed introduced the new ASET™ Foot Plating System to treat common forefoot and mid-foot indications. ASET includes implants for MTP, Lapidus and TMT fusions, and patented Hook Plates provide additional points of fixation to bones of limited real estate without relying on thread purchase.
Instrumentation allows surgeons to control compression with the patented "Magic Screwdriver" Expander/Compression tool.
ASET plates accept 2.7, 3.5, and 4.0mm screws to fit in any screw hole, reducing the need for additional inventory. Locking screws are designed to sit flush with the plate even when angled 15 degrees in either direction.
Greg Tsarukian, Senior Product Manager, emphasized that the ASET Foot Plating System is advantageous for challenging indications such as mid-foot fusions because of the unique implants, screws and instruments. “The set’s instruments are user-friendly and intuitive, including the Magic Screwdriver tool. There is a variety of choices of locking and cortical screws that fit into all plates while using the one-size driver. All of the plates are low profile, and their screw holes offer the ability of a variable angle of up to 15°. ASET offers plenty of options in case of in-surgery revisions,” he added.
