AN INNOVATIVE OPTION FOR MANAGING THE REDUCTION AND FIXATION OF DIFFICULT FRACTURES
The Herbert TM Cannulated Bone Screw is designed for the management of fractures where minimal tissue coverage makes standard screw use inappropriate or where extreme precision in fragment alignment is imperative.
Such locations might include fractures of the:
Olecranon and malleolar region
Specifically Designed for Problem Internal Fixation
The headless design of the Herbert Screw means that the screw is completely embedded in the bone, without any protrusions to cause tissue irritation even in intra-articular placement.
Cannulation helps ensure precise placement of the screw.
Herbert Cannulated Guide Pins hold the fragment and act as guides for drilling, tapping, and screw placement.
The Tivanium® Ti-6A1-4V Alloy used in fabricating these screws is highly biocompatible and corrosion resistant.
The thread design of the Herbert Screw creates compression and provides fracture stability. As the proximal threads engage the bone, the fracture is drawn together, helping to create and maintain stability of the fracture site.
