The Digital Compression Screw (D.C.S.) is a solid, stainless steel screw specifically designed to address digital fusions. The 1.5mm and 1.8mm diameters range from 20mm to 55mm in length, allowing for fusion of the DIPJ, PIPJ, or both.
The lag design and over-drilling technique allow for compression across the fusion site.
The threads purchase into cortical bone, improving stability and reducing the chance of rotation or residual flexion.
No exposed wires allow patients to wear a normal, stiff-soled postoperative shoe.
Once fusion has been achieved, the technique allows for easy in-office screw removal.
