Paragon 28® designed the JAWS™ Great White™ Staple System for use in an osteotomy, arthrodesis and fragment fixation of bones and joints of the foot including fixation of small bone fragments.
Paragon 28® optimized the shape, angulation, and size of the staple legs to distribute compression evenly along the length of the legs. The increased bridge thickness and leg thickness will provide superior strength, durability, and ability to resist torsional forces. The JAWS™ Great White™ Staple is capable of 140-175% more compressive force when compared to competitive nitinol staples.* The JAWS™ Great White staples have at least 400X fatigue life compared to competitive nitinol staples subjected to the same load parameters.*
The JAWS™ Great White™ Staple is sterile packaged and pre-loaded on an inserter that provides a simple insertion method to help gain rigid compression across an osteotomy or fusion site.
All instrumentation for the the JAWS™ Great White™ Staple System comes in a self-contained, disposable, sterile kit. The JAWS™ Great White™ Staple System comes pre-loaded on the inserter to help facilitate a quick and simple surgery. An auxiliary instrument set is also available which includes trial sizers, instrumentation used to decorticate the osteotomy and the JAWS™ Compressor. The JAWS™ Compressor is available to assist the surgeon in gaining pre-compression in midfoot to hindfoot fusions.
