NexFix Compression Pins for the foot and hand, made from high grade stainless steel, are offered as a cost effective means to fix fractures and fuse joints. They offer excellent compressive force with the speed and efficiency of applying a k-wire.
The Compression Pin combines the compressive strength of a screw with the ease of inserting a pin. Nexa partnered with leading extremity surgeons to design the pin, and released it in March 2006. Its variable-pitch threads and tapered stainless steel construction give it 64% greater compressive strength than a regular dual-threaded cannulated screw. Performing osteomies and fusions with the Compression Pin is a simple three-step procedure, which saves OR time.
For osteotomies, fusions, and fractures of small bones.
