The PitStop® Subtalar Implant facilitates the correction of pes plano valgus deformities.
The PitStop® Implant is made of PEEK. This biocompatible and inert polymer is flexible, which allows for placement in the sinus tarsi with better load distribution on bone surfaces versus stiffer materials such as titanium and stainless steel.
The PitStop® Features
Two X-ray markers made of tantalum are located at each end of the implant to help guide the positioning of the implant.
The easy keyed insertion device allows for a tight assembly between the implant and the instrument.
The anatomical shape, with the two symmetrical and flattened sides, is designed to reduce the compressive constraints and to improve distribution of stress. This may help to decrease incidence of reactive synovitis and improve patient tolerance.
The PitStop® is cannulated to facilitate and secure accurate positioning of the implant over a guide wire.
Lock-in flanges (small blades) are designed to provide primary stability in the sinus tarsi.
