The FIXUS88 H-series is an addition to the FIXUS88 Reconstruction family. The “H-series” is designed for treatment of angular corrections using the hemicallotasis method. Due to the increasing lifespan and activity level in the ageing population there is a growing need for alternative methods of treatment of degenerative diseases or/and treatment of congenital anomalies.
Correction of bone deformities using the hemicallotasis method has particular benefits over more traditional used correction methods; causes less soft-tissue scarring and less distortion of the bone fragments. Specifically, for the Tibia this means; it will make it easier to do a TKA in the future. Combine this with minimal risk of under/over correction due to slow-gradual correction and early weight baring, makes the hemicallotasis procedure with the H-series an excellent choice.
The FIXUS88 HTO RM has been designed to be as user friendly as possible. The base of the HTO RM consist of the known flexible parts of the FIXUS88 reconstruction fixator, with on top a specially designed translation/angulation head for precision correction and maximum stability. Combining these dedicated parts with the Fixus philosophy of external fixation making it a ‘rigidity, flexibility and ease of use’ unique fixator.
The HTO RM allows for an acute or gradual correction of 60 degrees, with the unique feature of translation minimizing stress during correction.
