The ANTHEM® Ankle Fracture System is a comprehensive set of low profile, anatomically-contoured plates for treatment of a variety of ankle fractures. A specialized set of instruments facilitates the efficiency in the operating room, with ankle-specific clamps designed to aid in fracture reduction. Radiolucent retractors and Weitlaners aid in visibility of the fracture site during intraoperative imaging.

The ARBOR® External Fixation System provides a streamlined set of clamps, pins, and bars with innovative instruments that allow surgeons to quickly create the pin-bar frame of their choice. The system offers a one-clamp design for every procedure regardless of pin size.
