6.5 mm and 

7.3 mm Cannulated Screws

6.5 mm and 7.3 mm Cannulated screws provide interfragmentary compression and absolute stability across the fracture.  6.5 mm and 7.3 mm Cannulated screws are available in three thread options: 16 mm, 32 mm or fully threaded, thus allowing the surgeon to optimize purchase in the far fragment for maximum compression.  The screws can be precisely placed with percutaneous techniques because the path of cannulated screws is directed by small diameter guide wires, thereby minimizing disruption of soft tissue and vascular flow.

6.5 mm and 7.3 mm Cannulated Screws

Features & Benefits

  • 6.5 mm and 7.3 mm Cannulated Screws

       

    • Cannulated shaft accepts 2.8 mm diameter guide wires
    • Hemispherical head is designed for optimal annular contact with DePuy Synthes washers and plates when screws are angled
    • Low-profile head reduces possibility of soft tissue irritation
  •    

    • Reverse-cutting flutes assist in screw removal
    • 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
