October 8, 2019 0 By FM

Paragon 28, Inc has launched the Silverback Ankle Fusion Plating System to address tibiotalar (TT) and tibiotalocalcaneal (TTC) ankle arthrodesis for anterior and lateral approaches.

With its slim plate designs, crossing screw capabilities for added stability and/or compression, bone-specific engineered screws and robust offering of joint preparation instrumentation, Silverback provides a complete ankle arthrodesis solution, all in one case and tray.

This system was designed to meet the inherent challenges when addressing an ankle arthrodesis under an anterior or lateral approach. The inherent challenges include: Ability to address soft tissue closure and limit neurovascular disruption particularly in regions with limited soft tissue coverage. Varied anatomies and deformities requiring diversity in anatomic plating designs and contouring capabilities, the company said. 

The Silverback Ankle Fusion Plating System offers 18 low profile (1.5 mm – 3.5 mm thickness) anatomically contoured plates with the intent to help ease soft tissue closure and attend to varied patient anatomies and deformities.
