Growth steering in patients with varus/valgus misalignments
Since their introduction in 2013, PediatrOS™ FlexTack™ Hemi-Epiphysiodesis Implants have enjoyed an unbroken track record of success in correcting varus and valgus misalignments, making it an alternative to implants approved for conventional applications.
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 Kirschner wires. The anatomically shaped PediatrOS™ FlexTack™ has a flexible middle zone that deforms under the forces of the growth plate while ensuring stable implant position and constant anchoring power. By adapting to ever-changing anatomic conditions, the implant helps gently and precisely correct alignment issues in paediatric and adolescent patients.
