New 45B screw!

FH ORTHO is pleased to introduce a new fixation system: the 45B screw, dedicated to HV fixation. 45 for the angulation of the head and B for bevelled profil.

The new system is design with a bevelled head to be inserted within the bone and minimizing the soft tissue irritation.

The screws are manufactured from titanium alloy and available in a range of sizes from 32mm to 50mm, to offer a large choice of sizes for important translation.

All screws are delivered in unitary sterile packed.

Evolution of the FHK range : size 7

The high rate of use of FHK implants size 6 has led us to evolve our range.

Today, the femoral components, tibial inserts and tibial trays are available in size 7, whether for the fixed and mobile bearing FHK prosthesis. Perfectly compatible with the rest of the range, these implants are available in cemented or cementless versions.

A compact instrument set is necessary for its use, in addition to the FHK instruments sets currently available.

All-inside reconstruction technique of the cruciate ligament of the knee using a short (DT4) graft, with more than 10 years of hindsight.

48,000 patients around the world have been treated with this technique.

The full range of TLS surgical options has been supplemented this year by a simple extra-articular pivot-shift reducing reconstruction technique at DI2, after single-bundle reconstruction of the ACL.

Fixation of ACL reconstruction and EAR both occur at the femur, the isometric point of the tibia is identified, then two strands of DI are sutured and fixed with a low volume biocomposite screw.
