Acumed Extremity Screws are cancellous screws that are indicated for fracture and osteotomy fixation of the upper and lower extremities. Extremity screws are self-drilling and self-tapping, and the small-head, low-profile design may help reduce the potential for soft tissue irritation. Screw placement for the Extremity Screw is achieved with the use of heavy guide wires for solid bone stabilization.
The Acumed Extremity Screw System is designed for fracture and osteotomy fixation of the upper and lower extremities. These screws are not intended for usage in the spine and are not for use with any available bone plates or washers.
All screws are made of titanium alloy per ASTM F136.
