A low profile bridge helps minimize soft tissue irritation while the sharp-tooth geometry increases pull out resistance and helps resist migration during healing. Paragon 28® optimized the shape, angulation, and size of the staple legs to distribute compression evenly along the length of the legs. This helps to eliminate plantar gapping and ensures consistent force across the osteotomy site.
All instrumentation for the JAWSTM Nitinol Staple System comes in a self-contained, disposable, sterile kit. The JAWS TM Nitinol Staple comes pre-loaded on the inserter to help facilitate a quick and simple surgery. An auxiliary instrument set is also available which includes trial sizers, instrumentation used to decorticate the osteotomy and the JAWSTM Compressor. The JAWS™ Compressor is available to assist the surgeon in gaining pre-compression in midfoot to hindfoot fusions.
