Cannulated Screw System

Wide Variety of Cannulated Screws for Multiple Applications in Foot & Ankle

  • Proprietary TiMAX® Surface Treatment designed for Increased Fatigue Strength1
  • Wide Variety of Diameters and Lengths
  • Low Head Profile

Cannulated Screw Systems from Zimmer Biomet include a wide range of specific and general use cannulated screws for mini-, small-, and large-bone applications in the foot and ankle. Sizes range from 3.0mm to 8.0mm in diameter with lengths up to 180mm. Partially threaded and fully threaded designs allow the surgeon to cover the spectrum of applications. The minimally invasive instrumentation and surgical technique are designed to limit additional trauma through percutaneous guides and small incisions.

Cannulated screw systems for foot and ankle applications include:

  • 3.0mm system with lengths ranging from 10mm to 70mm
  • 4.0/5.0mm system with lengths ranging from 10mm to 100mm
  • 6.5/8.0mm system with lengths ranging from 30mm to 180mm

The screws use the proprietary TiMAX® surface treatment, which has been shown, in mechanical testing, to have increased fatigue strength compared to 316L Electropolished Stainless Steel, Type I Anodized titanium, and machined titanium.1

Consider these important design features:

  • Hexalobular head design for increased torque
  • Longer screw lengths (available sterile only)
  • Partially threaded screw options for all sizes
  • Fully threaded screw options for 4.0/5.0mm and 6.5/8.0mm screws
  • Screw thread length on partially threaded 6.5/8.0 mm screws is 16mm
  • 6.5/8.0mm screws also offer a 40mm thread length option
  • Simple case/tray layout
  • Pin Pushers for each screw diameter
  • Combination depth gauge/countersink in each set
  • Sterile and non-sterile options
  • Flat washers to provide a larger surface area
