Paragon 28® Adds Larger Implant Option to Help Address Hallux Malleus in their First-of-its-kind Hammertoe and Plantar Plate Repair Solution – TenoTac® Soft Tissue Fixation System
Paragon 28® launched the TenoTac® Soft Tissue Fixation System in January 2019, providing surgeons the first and only dedicated system to address tendon transfers of the forefoot to correct contracted toes and repair plantar plate. In contrast to traditional methods for flexor tendon transfers, TenoTac® facilitates correction without releasing tissue attachments distally by balancing plantar and dorsal tension. Plantar and dorsal tissue distal to the TenoTac® are locked in and balanced, while tissue proximal to the tack is bolstered and stabilized. The system requires a small incision plantarly which avoids the weight bearing surface and small incision dorsally to facilitate implantation, resulting in less swelling, pain, and scarring when compared to traditional approaches. The limited incisions dorsally and plantarly are intended to limit postoperative swelling when compared with traditional fusion techniques. The streamlined technique and instrumentation allow for reduced interoperative time when compared to traditional approaches .Find the Press Release Here!
