PediatrOS™ FlexTack™


Growth steering with varus/valgus misalignments

For correcting axis misalignment (Genu varum/valgum) using hemi-epiphysiodesis. The flexible centre area of the anatomically shaped PediatrOS™ flex tack™ allows it to bend open in vivo in response to bone growth forces, helping steer paediatric and adolescent bone growth gently and precisely. The trapezoidal design of the PediatrOS™ FlexTack™ staple is closely aligned to the anatomy of the femur and tibia. Cannulated legs allow precise placement using K wires. This technological improvement on conventional implants for correcting varus/valgus misalignments provides excellent fluoroscopy times and can be implanted using minimally invasive techniques.
