Accu-Cut® Osteotomy Guide System
The Accu-Cut® Osteotomy Guide System is a disposable, sterile packaged system that includes guide(s), two universal saw blades, and two 0.045 double trocar K-wires. Guides are available for the most popular distal metatarsal osteotomies to address mild to moderate hallux valgus deformity. Using an Accu-Cut Osteotomy Guide ensures precise and accurate cuts every time, which is proven to provide improved stability and reduce the risk of displacement.
- All-inclusive sterile package provides the surgeon with everything needed to perform the desired osteotomy.
- Consistent and accurate correction reduces the risk of displacement.
- Sterile packaged system reduces OR setup time and eliminates instrument cleanup.
A study was conducted to determine the accuracy of a freehand osteotomy, wire-guided osteotomy, and an osteotomy with an Accu-Cut Osteotomy Guide during a chevron procedure where 55 degrees is recommended. Students (green), Residents (red), and Physicians (orange) performed the procedure with each method. The mean angles with the Accu-Cut Guide System resulted in precise and predictable results for all experience levels. Precise cuts allow for optimal bone contact which may reduce the chance of non-union or displacement of the osteotomy.
Your all-inclusive system for metatarsal osteotomies.
Our sterile packaged systems provide the surgeon with everything needed to perform the desired osteotomy. The custom sawblades feature inline teeth for a low-profile, uniform thickness allowing for tighter tolerances within the guide slots.
