The Paratrooper™ Plantar Plate System implant features two connected all-suture anchors providing for independent tensioning to assist in valgus and varus correction. The implant provides for self-retention of suture prior to knotting, allowing for partial tensioning of one implant and then the other to achieve precise correction. Tension may be reapproximated throughout the procedure prior to knotting. The implant is designed for maximum control to place the toe in a desired position.
The Paratrooper™ Plantar Plate System is designed for simplicity – surgeons will perform a single pass of the suture through the plantar plate deploying an anchor and then be able to tension and position the toe in the desired position. Paragon 28 has eliminated the need for complex inserters and instead leveraged a streamlined curved needle to pass the implant in tight spaces.
