The XtraFix External Fixation System allows surgeons to build rigid constructs for long bone and pelvic fractures with few components and steps. The system is intended to stabilize open or closed long bone. It can also be used for arthrodesis and osteotomies with associated soft tissue problems; stabilization of limbs after removal of total joint implants for infection or other failure; stabilization of non-unions, and as an intraoperative temporary stabilization tool assist with indirect reduction.
- SnapLoc™ technology secures bars and pins without having to tighten the nut, to address “pop-offs”
- Multi-pin clamps have 2-bar and 1-bar jaw attachments built-in to the clamp with the goal of reducing the number of components required to construct a frame
- Proprietary clamp swivel design provides 80° of motion for large and 70° of motion for small in three dimensions so pins can be placed where the fracture, not the fixator, requires
- One nut tightens everything simultaneously
