  • A/P and M/L Screws
    Designed to minimize longitudinal or rotational displacement while stabilizing the lateral buttress of the mortise.
  • Minimally Invasive
    The surgical technique may reduce complications associated with the large incisions required with plating.
  • Size
    A choice of 3.0 mm and 3.6 mm diameters and a variety of lengths (110, 145, and 180 mm) accommodate a variety of canal widths and fracture locations.

The Acumed Fibula Rod System offers an alternative approach to traditional fibular plating by providing fracture stability with a minimally invasive surgical technique. Utilizing a targeting guide, the fibula rod and interlocking screws can be inserted through small incisions, which may help minimize valuable surgery room time.
