Integra’s Hammertoe Correction Implant Passes 4000 Mark

In short

Integra LifeSciences Holdings Corp. is trumpeting the successful implantation of over 4,000 Integra® IPP-ON® PIP Fusion Systems. The announcement was made during last week’s AAOS meeting in Chicago.

Background

The IPP-ON PIP Fusion System is designed for fixation of proximal interphalangeal (PIP) joint arthrodesis of the lesser toes, and offers surgeons a straightforward alternative to k-wire fixation. It is a one-piece, stainless steel interphalangeal fusion device that offers both cortical and cancellous fixation, and is available in two sizes to accommodate varying patient anatomy.

Company comments

“This is a great milestone for our company, and an excellent example of Integra’s commitment to design products that help limit uncertainty for surgeons,” said Bill Weber, Integra’s Vice President and General Manager, Extremity Reconstruction. “The IPP-ON PIP Fusion System requires no special handling and can be stored at room temperature, allowing surgeons to use it whenever and wherever they need it.”
