Bone Screws

The Orthofix Extremity Fixation bone screws portfolio includes a broad range of solutions for the external fixation of bone segments.

Features & Benefits

Orthofix Bone Screws are intended to be used in association with Orthofix External Fixation Systems for long and small bone fixation.​ They are available in different thread designs, thread and shaft diameters and lengths, hydroxy-apatite coated and uncoated in order to be applied according to the anatomical site (i.e. upper limb, lower limb, pelvis, hand, and foot), bone dimensions and quality, and soft tissue dimensions. They are available in stainless steel and titanium.
Orthofix Bone Screws are intended for professional use only. Surgeons who supervise the use of Orthofix Bone Screws must have full awareness of orthopedic fixation procedures as well as an understanding of bone screw surgical applications and post-operative management.

XCaliber Screws

XCaliber™ Screws are self-drilling and self-tapping; their conical thread has been conceived to maximize the bone purchase. The pitch of the thread is smaller than the one of the pre-drilling Orthofix screws (1,25 mm instead of 1,75 mm), so its conicity (6-5,6 mm instead of 6-5 mm). XCaliber Screws are available in 2 lengths with different thread sizes, so that they can be cut before or after surgeries and inventories can be significantly reduced. XCaliber Screws are available sterile packed and with HA coating too.​
