HUNTLEY, Ill.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Centric Medical, the Foot & Ankle division of Life Spine, Inc., which focuses on developing surgical implants for the treatment of distal extremity pathology announced today the release of the ROGUE+ Hammertoe Correction System. This sterile-packed innovative system adds to the original implant design also available, while providing internal fixation via a dual threaded construct which is inserted between the proximal and middle phalanges so that the opposing threads fixate within the phalangeal canals of the toe to compress the proximal interphalangeal (PIP) joint.
“Centric Medical’s Rogue+ Hammertoe Correction System implant is a well-designed, patient focused, surgeon friendly device that allows for safe and predictable treatment of patients' forefoot problems,” said Gregory G. Caronis, M.D. of Advocate Condell Medical Center in Libertyville, Illinois.
The sterile-packed ROGUE+ Hammertoe Correction implant is designed to have less implant extruding into the PIP Joint when reducing the joint, which allows for easier reduction of the joint and less bone removal, maintaining more of the original toe length. It offers benefits of strength, compression, internal bone fixation and simplicity. With streamlined instrumentation to reduce OR time, along with an improved technique, the implant can be consistently placed across the PIP Joint to optimize bone purchase in the proximal and middle phalanx.
