The Acutrak® Advantage in Four-Corner Fusion

Image

Released in 1994, the original Acutrak Headless Compression Screw was the first fully-threaded headless compression screw with continuously variable thread pitch on the market.

Beyond Standard Fixation

A retrospective study of patients with four-corner arthrodesis showed that, in comparison to standard fixation options, Acutrak 2® Mini headless compression screws may:
  • Demonstrate less chance of nonunion1
  • Have a greater chance of increasing grip strength and motion1

Designed to Minimize Prominence

Image
The Acutrak 2 headless screw is designed to minimize prominence and therefore may result in less cartilage damage, dorsal impingement, and soft tissue irritation than traditional fixation methods in four-corner fusion.

Compression, Gained and Maintained

The fully threaded Acutrak screw technology provides the highest amount of retained compression after cyclic loading compared to AO and Herbert screws in cadaveric and synthetic bone material.2

Higher Torsional Stiffness

The two Acutrak 2—7.5 mm screws showed higher torsional stiffness in a biomechanical test compared to that previously reported with two conventional lag screws2
