6.5 mm Cannulated screws provide interfragmentary compression and absolute stability across the fracture. 6.5 mm Cannulated screws are available in three thread options: 16 mm, 32 mm or fully threaded, thus allowing the surgeon to optimize purchase in the far fragment for maximum compression. The screws can be precisely placed with percutaneous techniques because the path of cannulated screws is directed by small diameter guide wires, thereby minimizing disruption of soft tissue and vascular flow.
Low-profile head reduces possibility of soft tissue irritation.
Choice of thread lengths offers best fit of threads into far bone fragment, for greater interfragmentary compression.
Cancellous thread profile uses deep cutting threads with a large pitch to increase resistance to pullout. The large pitch also accelerates screw insertion and removal.
Self-tapping screw tip facilitates screw insertion by eliminating the need for predrilling and tapping in most cases.
6.5 mm Cannulated Screws are intended for fracture fixation of large bones and large bone fragments.
6.5 mm Cannulated Screws are also indicated for:
Femoral neck fractures
Slipped Capital Femoral Epiphysis (SCFE)
As an adjunct to DHS in basilar neck fractures
Tibial plateau fractures
Pediatric femoral neck fractures
Intercondylar femur fractures
Sacroiliac joint disruptions
