Reducing the potential of boney overgrowth

The overlapping Edge is the main design feature differentiating the HemiEDGE™ from traditional phalangeal implants. This Edge extends over the dorsal, medial and lateral cortices beyond the resected base of the phalanx. The plantar surface does not include the Edge, preserving the flexor attachment and avoiding any implant prominence on the weight bearing surface. The Edge surrounds the phalanx to help support and stabilize the implant. This improves implant stability, assists in proper placement during implantation, and reduces the potential of bone overgrowth.

Stable Implant Support

The overlapping Edge design surrounds the phalanx to help support and stabilize the implant. This improves implant stability by supporting the implant on the cortical surfaces of the phalanx for solid, stable implant support.

Ensuring proper sizing

The HemiEDGE™ incorporates two visualization portals along the dorsal Edge of the implant. These portals allow for visual confirmation the implant is fully seated against the resected surface of the phalanx. Along with the Edge design, a properly seated implant contributes to ensuring a stable implant post-operatively.
