The AcuTwist Acutrak Compression Screw is designed to provide compressive fixation for use in fractures, fusions, and osteotomies. Available in a range of lengths (10–30 mm), the screw was designed in conjunction with Greg Horton, M.D. for quick fixation in indications of the upper and lower extremities. The screw design includes a variable thread pitch, a tapered profile, a break-off groove, and threads along the entire length of the screw. The fully threaded screw length allows for greater resistance to push-out force than partially threaded headed and headless screws.
