Compression PT Screw System


2.5 and 3.0 mm Headless Compression PT Screws

The 2.5 mm and 3.0 mm titanium Headless Compression PT screws can be used for fixation of osteotomies, fusion, or fracture fixation in the foot/ankle, hand/wrist, and elbow. The screws provide compression due to different thread pitches at the head of the screw and at the distal thread of the screw. A hexalobe recess provides improved torque transmission and allows for simplified insertion. For Weil osteotomies, 2.0 mm snap-off QuickFix™ screws are included in the 2.5 mm and 3.0 mm Headless Compression PT Screw System (AR-8610S-01), completing a comprehensive solution for the forefoot.

Features of 2.5 and 3.0 mm Headless Compression PT screws:

• Headless design

• Self-drilling and self-tapping

• Hexalobe drive (2.5 mm = T7; 3.0 mm = T8)

• Cannulated

• Titanium

• Color-coded instruments

• Short and long guidewires (80 mm or 120 mm) available

• Distal thread lengths = ⅓ of overall screw length

• Lengths of 2.5 mm screws: 8 mm to 34 mm

• Lengths of 3.0 mm screws: 10 mm to 36 mm

 

4.3 and 6.5 mm Headless Compression PT Screws

The 4.3 mm and 6.5 mm titanium Headless Compression PT screws can be used for the fixation of osteotomies, fusions, or fracture fixation in the mid- and hindfoot. The headless design helps reduce the risk of profile complications, provide compression, and allow for simplified insertion.

Features of 4.3 and 6.5 mm Headless Compression PT screws:

• Headless design

• Self-drilling and self-tapping

• Hexalobe drive (4.3 mm = T15; 6.5 mm = T25)

• Cannulated

• Titanium

• Color-coded instruments

• Guidewires: 1.35 mm x 170 mm (4.3 mm screws)

                      2.4 mm x 170 mm (6.5 mm screws)

• 4.3 mm screws: distal thread length = ⅓ of overall screw length

• Lengths of 4.3 mm screws: 14 mm to 50 mm (x2)

                                               55 mm to 80 mm (x5)

• Lengths of 6.5 mm screws: 30 mm to 120 mm (x5) (18 mm Short Thread)

                                               60 mm to 120 mm (x5) (28 mm Long Thread)
