Biomet Pediatric Vari-Angle Hip Screw System

The Pediatric Vari-Angle Hip Screw System (PVHS) is indicated for fracture fixation in the proximal and distal regions of the femur. The PVHS utilizes a unique variable angle hip screw design that allows the surgeon to achieve optimized implant-to-femur fit without the constraints of standard, fixed neck-shaft angle devices.

Selling Points:
