XTRAFIX® External Fixation System

External Fixation System

The XTRAFIX® System is an External Fixation System used during orthopaedic surgery that provides surgeons more freedom and efficiency. It allows surgeons to build rigid constructs with fewer components in less time.

The XTRAFIX System design eliminates steps, and reduces components.  These efficiencies result in saved operating room time, costs, and surgeon/surgical team effort.

All clamps in the XTRAFIX system have a “Pinch-Lock” Latch that secures bars and pins without having to tighten the nut. This eliminates troublesome “pop-offs” that waste precious time and effort in the operating room.

Federal U.S. Law restricts this device to the sale, distribution and use by or on the order of a physician. See the package insert for complete product information including contraindications, warnings, precautions, adverse effects and MR-Conditional information/testing parameters.

Instructions for Use

Surgical Techniques and Related Guides

The XTRAFIX System saves O.R. time, costs, and surgeon/surgical team effort because of the following built-in efficiencies.

Pinch-Lock” Latch design – encircles the bar/pin to provide a positive and secure connection

External Fixation System

• No more pop-offs

Patented clamp swivel design

XTRAFIX-bar-to-pin-2b

• 80° of motion

• Frames can move in three dimensions prior to final tightening, aids fracture reduction

• Pins can be placed where the fracture - not the fixator - requires

One-nut tightening

External Fixation System

The clamps are designed so that only one nut tightens everything simultaneously, this saves time when compared to tightening two separate nuts on a single clamp.

Federal U.S. Law restricts this device to the sale, distribution and use by or on the order of a physician. See the package insert for complete product information including contraindications, warnings, precautions, adverse effects and MR-Conditional information/testing parameters.

Efficiency Clamps

image003

• 75mm Pin Clamp, 2-Bar

      • Allows independent tightening over the pins and bars

image004

• 45mm Pin Clamp, 2-Bar

      • One nut tightens the clamp over bars and pins simultaneously, this removes the added step of separately tightening over a pin

image005

• 45mm Pin Clamp, 1-Bar 

      • Allows independent tightening over the pins and bar

XTRAFIX Trays

A complete, efficient set in two simple trays:

   • clamp tray

   • bar/pin tray

Instruments and pins are color-coded by size.

Efficiency Multi-pin Clamps

The XTRAFIX System has efficiency multi-pin clamps with integrated bar attachments. This eliminates the need for separate posts and bar-to-bar clamps.

Federal U.S. Law restricts this device to the sale, distribution and use by or on the order of a physician. See the package insert for complete product information including contraindications, warnings, precautions, adverse effects and MR-Conditional information/testing parameters.
