Diamond Orthopedic, a medical device company that is pioneering the use of an innovative faceted threadform in orthopedics, today announced an agreement to supply faceted bone screws for the NuVasive PRECICE® Plate, a limb lengthening and reconstruction system. The NuVasive PRECICE® Plate addresses pediatric applications for patients with small anatomy who cannot accommodate a lengthening device that is traditionally implanted within the patient’s bone.
The agreement is for the supply of both locking and non-locking faceted threadform screws in a new system that is designed to affix to the outside of a patient’s bone to avoid potential damage to the growth plate. Over several months from home, the patient follows a custom lengthening schedule to gradually distract the plate, stretching newly forming bone to a targeted length. Diamond Orthopedic screws are utilized to secure the plate during the bone lengthening process.
Diamond’s patented faceted bone screw design allows surgeons to insert faceted screws into bone with reduced insertional torque and increased screw pullout, according to both in vitro and in vivo studies that have been completed by the company. These studies have also demonstrated an improved bone-screw interface versus traditional helical threadforms.
“This is a significant vote of confidence in the value proposition of faceted bone screws,” said Roy Bivens, chief executive officer of Diamond Orthopedic. “Faceted bone screws offer unparalleled fixation, and we are especially proud to have the opportunity to bring this technology to pediatric cases as a part of NSO’s new PRECICE® plating system that elevates the standard of care for pediatric patients with limb length discrepancy.”
