4.0mm Cannulated Screw

Features & Benefits


    • Cannulated shaft accepts 1.25 mm diameter guide wires (threaded and non-threaded wires available).
    • Hemispherical head ensures optimal annular contact with washers and DePuy Synthes plates when screws are angled.
    • Low-profile head reduces possibility of soft tissue irritation.
    • Standard 2.5 mm hexagonal drive is compatible with screwdrivers in other commonly used DePuy Synthes sets.
    • Reverse-cutting flutes assist in screw removal.

    • Choice of thread lengths offers best fit of threads into far bone fragment, for greater interfragmentary compression.
    • Cancellous thread profile uses deep cutting threads with a large pitch to increase resistance to pullout. The large pitch also accelerates screw insertion and removal.
    • Self-drilling, self-tapping screw tip facilitates screw insertion by eliminating the need for predrilling and tapping in most cases.


    Short thread(thread length = 1/3 screw length)
