Carbon22 Cannulated Screw System Gets FDA Clearance
The FDA has granted 510(k) marketing clearance for Carbon22’s Creed cannulated screw system, a set of bone screws used in foot and ankle surgeries.
The “ortholucent” compression screws have a titanium core covered by polyether ether ketone (PEEK) resin, proving radiotransparent properties that allow for better imaging of a patient’s bones structures during and after surgeries.
Developed in collaboration with pediatric and orthopedic surgeons, the cannulated screws are self-drilling and have self-tapping tips. They are available in diameters of 2.5, 4.3, 5.6 and 7.4 millimeters and in a broad range of lengths.
