The system includes instrumentation designed to facilitate placement of a K-wire down the center of the intramedullary canal of the medial column. The patent pending PRECISION® Guide aids in positioning of the K-wire simplifying placement which may reduce intraoperative fluoroscopy time. All instrumentation is designed to assist in the surgeons preferred approach, cannulated or solid.
Finally, the system allows surgeons to buttress the medial column beam with a 2.0mm thick Gorilla® Straddle Plate to further reinforce the construct. Surgeons may utilize the PRECISION® Guide in conjunction with the Straddle Plate and medial column beam to avoid interference between the plate screws and the beam.
