Acutrak 2 - Micro

  • Compression/Fully-threaded Length
    The fully-threaded variable pitch and tapered profile are intended to work together to compress bone fragments into one rigid structure to help promote union. The screw’s fully-threaded length is designed to maintain compression until bone fragments unite.
  • Headless Design
    When implanting a screw in and around articular regions, the headless design is intended to minimize the risk of impingement or soft tissue irritation.
  • Cannulated Design
    Cannulation facilitates accurate percutaneous insertion with minimal soft tissue dissection.
  • Self-tapping
    The cutting flutes on the distal tip of the screw facilitate insertion of the Acutrak 2 into hard bone by aiding in removal of bone.

The Acumed Acutrak 2 Micro incorporates the same design principles as the rest of the Acutrak 2 family of screws. The Acutrak 2 Micro is designed for the fixation of small bones and fracture fragments, where a 2.0 mm - 2.4 mm headed cruciform screw or an equivalent-sized headless screw would otherwise be required. Indications for the Acutrak 2 Micro include: radial head fractures, phalangeal fractures, carpal fractures, metacarpal head fractures, proximal pole scaphoid fractures. Acutrak 2 Micro screws are available in lengths up to 30 mm, are inserted with a 1.5 mm hex over a .035" guide wire and are color-coded for easy identification in the surgery room.

Case Study: Acute Radial Head Fracture

Richard S. Moore, M.D., uses the Acutrak 2 Micro Screws to treat an acute right radial head fracture in a 64-year-old woman following a mechanical fall onto an outstretched hand. Who complained of pain and limited range of motion of the elbow.
