Extremity Screw System

Product Overview

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.
