6.5/8.0mm Cannulated Screw System

The 6.5/8.0mm Cannulated Screw System is part of a series of cannulated screws ranging from 3.0 to 8.0mm. Matching a combination of screw options with necessary instrumentation, the system is designed to provide convenience and flexibility for the orthopaedic surgeon and the OR staff. Consistent with all Zimmer Biomet implants, the screws are type 2 anodized titanium alloy material which has been shown in mechanical testing, to have increased fatigue strength compared to 316L electropolished stainless steel, type 1 anodized titanium (color), and machined titanium1. This system is truly designed with the surgeon in mind.

Variability

The system consistsof screw options ranging from 3.0 to 8.0 mm, matching each option with necessary instrumentation designed toprovide convenience and flexibility for the surgeon and OR staff.

Strength

Screws offer TiMax® surface treatment which have been shown in mechanical testing, to have increased fatigue strength compared to 316L electropolished stainless steel, type 1 anodized titanium and machined titanium.1

 

Features

 
  • Type 2 anodized titanium alloy material for increased fatigue strength over 316L stainless steel, Type 1 anodized (color) titanium, and machined titanium1
  • 2.8mm guide wire -CoCr material for wire rigidity over stainless steel
  • Low profile heads are designed to help minimize soft tissue irritation - 6.5/8.0mm screws offered in short(16mm Thd), long (40mm Thd) and fully threaded options
  • Hexalobular head designed for improved torque over hex design
  • Screw size/length for 6.5/8.0:

    • 16mm Thd: 30-130mm (135-180mm Sterile)
    • 40mm Thd: 70-130mm (135-180mm Sterile)
    • Fully Thd: 30-130mm (135-180mm Sterile)
  • Depth Gauge w/ Countersink saves time in the OR by performing 2 steps in one.
