Fixation of fusions and osteotomies in the foot can be challenging to repair. The following biomechanical performance characteristics must be addressed in any solution designed to correct these portions of the anatomy: •Joint stabilization, •Compression (initial and retained), •Cyclic loading, •Ease of application. Various stapling and plating technologies have been designed and implemented to address these challenges. The Acumed Ratcheting Compression Plating System addresses all of these challenges and is unique in its ability to allow the surgeon to generate, incrementally increase, and retain mechanical compression through the unique ratcheting design feature.
