French devicemaker In2Bones secured FDA clearance for two of its orthopedic repair systems.
The agency cleared the 5MS Fracture repair and CoLag locking compression screw system. The 5MS Fracture repair system treats deformities and fractures of the fifth metatarsal bone while the CoLag system improves compression and helps heal fragments and fractures.
Fifth metatarsal fractures are the most common for athletes. The company says the CoLag’s design may be one of the biggest advancements in screw fixation in decades.
