Solutions in your hands

The Zimmer® Cannulated Screw System comprises a wide range of sizes ranging from Ø3.0 mm-7.5 mm, lengths up to 180 mm, partial and full threaded design enabling the surgeon to address a broad spectrum of trauma needs. 

Strength

  • Biodur 108 Alloy allows the Zimmer Cannulated System to feature deep threads without compromising strength. 2
  • Self-drilling and self-tapping thread design is intended to allow for ease of insertion. Reverse cutting flutes aid in ease of removal. 

Reduced Sensitivity

  • Biodur® 108 is low-nickel stainless steel alloy 3 designed to reduce Ni release minimizing the chances of Nickel sensitivity

Accuracy

  • Biodur 108 Alloy allows the Zimmer Cannulated System to feature large cannulation without compromising screw strength. 
  • The large cannulation accommodates a large/stiff guide wire
  • Guide wires are designed to increase strength and stiffness to help minimize skiving, deflecting, or “walking” on the bone
  • This aims to afford increase accuracy in guide wire placement and screw insertion. 

Features

Screws are made from a proprietary implant grade stainless steel alloy called ‘Biodur® 1081’ that enables key features and benefits*.

 

Large Cannula

  • Large cannulation and deep threading without compromising strength. This helps provide precise guidewire placement, designed to limit the chances of skiving, deflecting, or ‘walking’ on the bone.

 

Self-drilling/Self-tapping

  • Self-drilling/Self-tapping cutting flutes are designed to allow ease of insertion while the reverse cutting flutes are designed to aid in ease of removal. Deep threads aim to increase resistance to pullout.

 

Minimally-Invasive

  • Minimally invasive instrumentation and surgical technique are designed to minimize additional trauma through percutaneous guides and small incisions.
