Manufacturer's Description

The OrthoPro Subtalar Spacer System is a minimally invasive answer for flexible flatfoot. The STS implant is threaded, designed to be inserted between the posterior and middle facets of the subtalar joint with corresponding instrumentation to facilitate insertion. It is important that the instruments and trial implants used are those specifically designed for this device to ensure accurate insertion. The STS screw implant is cylindrical in shape and incorporates a center cannula designed for use with a guide wire to facilitate proper placement. An internal hex-head allows for maximum torque with minimal risk of stripping. External rounded threads increase ease of insertion.

The OrthoPro STS implant difference:

Concaved distal entrance into guide wire opening to allow self centering of guide pin for removal
Space between the four proximal and three distal threads to allow soft tissue encapsulation to minimize migration
More aggressive first thread for easier insertion
Implants sterilized with the tray in separate compartments
