Arcus® Staple System

The Arcus Staple System is a unique titanium staple system utilizing an arc design that creates greater proximal-to-distal compression than tested conventional and nitinol staples1*

  • Unique Arc Design – Allows for uniform dynamic tine motion
  • Greater compression than Nitinol staples1*
  • Retains compression1*
  • Internal barbs function: create compression, resist migration
  • Stackable Design


  • Proven retention of compression over time1*
  • Tapered tines facilitate insertion
  • Internal tooth pattern and location provide compression at the near and far cortex
  • Tooth pattern orientation and shape provide resistance to pullout forces**
  • Optional sterile sizing template available
  • Sterile Packed Procedure Kit Includes:
    o Staple pre-loaded on size specific inserter
    o Size specific AO drill and drill guide
    o Temporary pin
  • Sterile Packed Individual Assembly Includes:
    o Staple pre-loaded on size specific inserter
  • Stackable design
  • Titanium design provides balanced elasticity and rigidity
  • Not contraindicated for patients with Nickel allergy/sensitivity
