Wright Medical launched its bone-preserving GRAVITY™ SYNCHFIX™ device for dynamic fixation across the syndesmosis (the point above the ankle where the tibia and fibula meet). The low-profile, flexible device allows the medial button to be positioned on bone, avoiding neurovascular impingement.
The medial button requires a 2.8mm pilot hole, smaller than the average size for products on the market, while the flexible design offers stability and minimizes the need to remove the hardware.
GRAVITY SYNCHFIX is compatible with Wright's recently-launched ORTHOLOC™ 3Di Ankle Fracture LP system to address fracture and syndesmotic injuries all at once.
