Kirschner wires are often used for the surgical treatment of proximal inter-phalangeal arthrodesis. This technique is associated with a possible lack of the important rotational stability that is required for proper bone fusion, as well as with the inconvenience during the 4 to 6 weeks healing period. Patients often feel embarrassed by the external remainder of the pin(s) and the need for pin removal. The Toegrip® implant was designed with a group of foot surgeons. The innovative design of the Toegrip® induces a cortical intra-medullar stability, reducing the non-union risk due to the axial and rotational bony fragments motion, improving the patient comfort. The Polyketone material radio lucency optimizes Xrays examination.
