FDA Clears Centric Medical’s Hammertoe Correction System
Centric Medical has been granted a 510(k) marketing clearance for a foot-phalange device for hammertoe patients.
The Hammertoe Correction System is a dual-threaded device and is placed between the proximal and middle phalanges, so that both threads grip the phalangeal canal of the toe and compress the joint.
This is an alternative treatment to wire pins, which can break and dislodge. — Cynthia Jessup
