CBS Screws 4.5/7.5

Headless Compression Screws for the Foot

The CBS (Compression Bone Screw) Systems offer cannulated titanium double threaded headless compression screws designed for fracture fixation, non-unions, joint decompression and fusion, osteotomies, reconstruction or arthrodesis of bones in the foot and hand surgery. The CBS Screws 4.5/7.5 are for use in adult patients only.

Different screw threads aim to lead to the desired compression forces.  The screws feature notches at both threads which create a reaming effect designed to simplify screw insertion and intends to lead to precise screw placement.

Consider these important design features of the CBS 4.5/7.5 Screws:

  • Compact and efficient trays for both 4.5 and 7.5 systems
  • Titanium screws for biocompatibility
  • Double threaded headless compression for stable arthrodesis
  • Notches at both threads designed to create a reaming effect to simplify screw insertion
  • Color-coded screws and instruments for easy identification
  • CBS 4.5 (screw lengths from 18-90mm)
  • CBS 7.5 (screw lengths from 40-120mm)

 

CBS 4.5 Screws (Foot & Hand Surgery)

The CBS System 4.5 screws are indicated for fixation of mid-sized intra-articular bone fragments for fractures and reconstruction. 

General Indications:

  • Fixation of osteotomies
  • Reconstruction of fractures
  • Stabilization arthrodesis in hand, foot and shoulder surgery

The different screw threads and the large spectrum of lengths allow an optimum choice of implant and make the system suitable for universal use in orthopaedic surgery, particularly for fixation of mid-sizes intra-articular bone fragments.  The cannulated double threaded compression screw can be placed easily and precisely using a guide wire.

 

CBS 7.5 Screws (Foot Surgery)

The CBS System 7.5 screws are indicated for hindfoot arthrodesis, (e.g. arthrodesis of the subtalar joint, talo-navicular joint and calcaneo-cuboid joint), arthrodesis of Charcot arthropathies, revision of pseudarthrosis and malaligned arthrodesis, fixation of calcaneus displacement osteotomy and surgical combination procedures with osteosynthesis to the surgeon’s preference.

The 7.5mm cannulated compression screw permits a stable arthrodesis of the calcaneus and the subtalar bone.  The screws can be used for arthrodesis of the talo-navicular joint and the calcaneo-cuboid joint, as well as for the arthrodesis of the Charcot arthropathics.  

General Indications:

  • Arthrodesis of the subtalar joint
  • Compression arthrodesis of the talo-navicular and calcaneo-cuboid joint
  • Arthrodesis of the Charcot arthropathics
  • Revision of the pseudo arthrosis
  • Correction of wrong positioned arthrodesis
  • Surgical combination procedures with osteosynthesis titanium plates

This RECON system consists of various system components and it is indicated for the treatment of fracture fixation, non-unions, joint decompression and fusion, osteotomies, reconstruction or arthrodeses of small bones. The system can be used in adult patients only.
