Three-part construct intended for internal fixation for First Tarsometatarsal Fusion.
Inspired. Intuitive. InCore.
This system is internal to the bone, and is designed to help
minimize the need for hardware removal due to pain and irritation
reported with traditional external plating constructs of first
- Forefoot: Lapidus
- Midfoot: Lapidus
InCore® Lapidus is designed as a post and screws construct to minimize hardware prominence that can cause pain and lead to hardware removal
Hardware removal due to pain and irritation is reported in up to17%
of first tarsometatarsal arthrodesis cases when using plating constructs.1,2
The kit contains the post and instruments needed for one procedure*, designed to eliminate product complexity for hospital staff and improve operating room productivity.
Fully sterile implant and instrument system
Instrumentation has never been used, damaged, or worn prior to surgery
Time and cost savings of sterilization prior to case
The system is designed to be easy to use and mitigate complexity for surgical team, potentially increasing OR efficiency.
Posts, screws, plug are Color anodized titanium alloy Ti 6-4 ELI
5.9mm diameter, 28mm length 2 posts – Left/Right
3.5mm diameter (head dia. 4.98mm), lengths 24-56mm
Instrument Kits :
1. Reusable InCore Lapidus Kit
2. Sterile InCore Lapidus Disposable Kits – (Left/Right)
Instruments : Torque limiting handle (sterile), T10 Driver (sterile), 3.6mm drill bit (sterile) for Post, K-wire 2.0mm x 102mm (sterile)
2d Note: For Sterile System, the disposable kit does not come with the Torq Handle
- Designed to simplify the technique with fully-guided stabilize angular/rotational correction in all three planes. Distraction allows for proper joint visualization and preparation allowing surgeon to cut, curettage or micro fracture. Additionally, the system has a built-in compression/distraction fixture intended to aid and hold pre-compression of the joint.
Solid Intermedullary Construct
- The system includes post and screws designed to minimize hardware prominence that can result in hardware removal due to pain or irritation related to such hardware prominence. Studies have shown up to 17% hardware removal due to pain and irritation when using plating constructs for first tarsometatarsal arthrodesis cases.1,2
- The easy to use, pre-sterilized kit was intended to decrease time, sterilization cost and contamination concerns. Instruments are new and sharp every time minimizing the complexity for the OR team. Intermedullary implant post comes pre-assembled to the compression/distraction guide, eliminating need for back table assembly.
