As with other DynaNail systems, DynaNail Helix uses proprietary, nitinol-based materials technology. The NiTiNOL tech provides sustained dynamic compression properties for subtalar fusion.
At the same time, Enovis sought to give it an anatomically friendly design and simple, screw-like insertion. As a result, the Helix’s threads also allow for easy insertion like a screw while also providing a nail’s dynamic compressive power and stability.
“It provides sustained compression across the fusion site, which traditional screws cannot do,” said Dr. Christopher Hirose, a foot and ankle orthopedic surgeon based in Boise, Idaho.
Hirose added in the Enov…
