NexFix Compression Pin

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.

NexFix™ Compression Pin

Features & Benefits

64% greater compressive strength.

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.

  • Variable pitch, tapered profile and buttress threads offer greater compression.
  • Stainless steel for optimal strength.
  • Self-drilling and self-tapping for ease of insertion.
  • Three simple steps save OR time.

Indications

For osteotomies, fusions, and fractures of small bones.

Three Simple Steps

1. Pre-drill using the indicated guide wire to the osteomy site to create a pathway for the Compression Pin to travel.

2. Using a driver or drill, place the Compression Pin to the desired depth.

3. Cut the pin close to the bone using a pin cutter.
