The OS2®-vp Staple’s compression-on-release design and PEEK construction offer constant and reproducible compression.
The OS2®-vp is from the first family of PEEK-OPTIMA® osteosynthesis Staples and is recognized for the absence of nickel and metallic sensitivity concerns, and is widely used for its biocompatibility, mechanical and radio-transparent qualities.
- Designed for Akin and Austin osteotomies and other similar procedures with compression on release
- PEEK radiolucency and biocompatibility
- No nickel or metal sensitivity concerns
- 26° angled option designed to match the metaphysis of the phalanx
PEEK-OPTIMA® is radio transparent. This enables clearer OR and post-op imaging of the surgery site.
With its compression-on-release design, the legs of the Staple converge by 20°. Storage and use is at normal room temperature.
The compression Staple’s teeth design ensures stability on insertion.
The OS2®-vp Staples are delivered sterile on a disposable, recyclable holder and can be easily loaded on the Inserter when ready. The Sterile Implant / Instrument pack includes two 1.6mm K-wires, one 70 and the other 100mm, a combo Inserter / Drill Guide and independent Tamp.
After opening the sterile pack, release the Loader from the Holder/Drill Guide. Free the K-wires from the Impactor/Tamp. The OS2®-vp Staple is nested within the Holder.
A: COMPRESSION – The compression-on-release design legs of the Staple converge 20°.
