Cannulated Compression Headless Screw (CCHS) System

CCHS offers surgeons uncompromised precision through:

  • Innovative cutting edge for improved cutting efficiency1,2,3
  • Cobalt Chrome Guide Wire for less deflection4
  • Most comprehensive portfolio on the market to address wide range of surgical needs5

The CCHS implants are Titanium, differential thread pitch, partially threaded screws available in 9 diameters (2.0 – 7.5mm).

Features & Benefits

Innovative Cutting Edge

Three uniquely angled surfaces combine to form an innovative cutting edge designed to1,2,3:  

  • Reduce insertion force
  • Minimize the need for pre-drilling

Traditional self-drilling / self-tapping screws have a straight tip vs CCHS angled tip. Angled cutting tips allow for efficient screw insertion into bone.

Cobalt Chrome Guide Wires

Cobalt Chrome Guide Wires

Added stiffness through:

  • Cobalt Chrome Guide Wires have a 29% higher bending stiffness compared to Stainless Steel*4
  • Cobalt Chrome Guide Wire reduces deflection during wire insertion*4

*Comparing Guide Wires with same cross-section. CoCr Guide Wire compared to SS Guide Wire of same diameter.

Superior Cutting Efficiency*– Force to Insert Testing

*Bench testing may not be indicative of clinical performance. Axial load of 15 samples of small screw types and 6 samples of large screw types were measured. Percentage comparisons between CCHS and competitive screws are based upon observed mean axial loads from testing. Superiority is based on a 99% observed confidence.

Indication Statement 

The DePuy Synthes Cannulated Compression Headless Screws are indicated for use in bone reconstruction, osteotomy, arthrodesis, joint fusion, fracture repair, and fracture fixation of bones appropriate for the size of the device. Screws are intended for single use only.

Contraindications

The implant should not be used in a patient who has current, or who has a history of:

  • Local or systemic acute or chronic inflammation
  • Active infection or inflammation
  • Suspected or documented metal allergy or intolerance
