Uniquely Designed Treatment Option for Moderate to Severe Bunions

Introducing osteo-WEDGE™. This system provides a superior treatment option for arthrodeses of the first metatarsocuneiform joint. 

The dorsomedially placed plate has the optimal length and width to provide maximum stability at the arthrodeses site, resisting biomechanical forces. The overall shape of the wedge is rectangular and has a depth of approximately 4mm from the bottom of the plate. The width of the wedge varies from 0mm (flat plate) to 10mm. The self-tapping cortical locking bone screws provide the necessary compression to facilitate bone healing at the 1st MCJ.

The osteo-WEDGE™ Open Wedge Bone Locking Plate System fixes the deformity at its foundation. With osteo-WEDGE™, foot surgeons have a new option for permanent correction, without the limitations of other methods.

How To Diagnosis Partial TaloTarsal Displacement

Ultimately, the best way to diagnosis the presence of talotarsal displacement is through radiographic examination, which officially confirms the presence and severity of the condition.

Traditionally, most specialists will order a series of standing radiographs, that is, x-rays of the foot while the person is standing. These should be taken with the foot in its relaxed position (full weight applied) and also with the hind-foot bones in their balanced “neutral” or ideal position.

In addition, a specialist may perform further movement tests, as well as some computer-aided exams like gait pattern analysis, if deemed necessary.

All of these diagnostic methods are completely painless and non-invasive. They are safe, fast and are simple routine processes.
