Wave™ Calcaneal Fracture Plate

Tornier is proud to introduce the WAVE™ Calcaneal fracture plating system — a first of its kind in ORIF management of calcaneus fractures. The plate is designed specifically for use in a less invasive soft tissue sparing approach. When considering that the reported complication rate associated with the large extensile open approach is as high as 36%*, the WAVE brings a welcome advancement in surgical treatment of this complex fracture.
