Enovis wins FDA nod for patient-specific Star Ankle instrumentation

The STAR patient-specific instrumentation (STAR PSI system). [Image from Enovis]Enovis (NYSE:ENOV) announced today that the FDA approved the STAR patient-specific instrumentation for use with the STAR total ankle replacement system.

Enovis introduces DynaNail Helix for hindfoot fusions

The DynaNail Helix’s threads allow for easy insertion like a screw. But it also has the dynamic compressive power and stability of a nail. [Image courtesy of Enovis]Enovis Corp. (NYSE: ENOV) has launched the DynaNail Helix —the latest addition to its DynaNail family and suite of foot and ankle products.

As with other DynaNail systems, DynaNail Helix uses proprietary, nitinol-based materials technology. The NiTiNOL tech provides sustained dynamic compression properties for subtalar fusion.

“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…
