Wright Medical Group Inc. announced the full commercial launch of the Ortholoc 3Di Reconstruction Plating System for foot and ankle surgery.

According to a company press release, the Ortholoc 3Di Plating System provides multiple screw options, including a number of anatomical plates, screws and specialized surgical instrumentation used for fracture fixation, osteotomies and fusions of the foot. The system also had polyaxial locking technology, which enables the surgeon to adjust the screw trajectory to meet the patient’s anatomic requirements and provide a strong locking construct to promote bone fixation.

“Along with other planned new product launches, the Ortholoc 3Di Plating System is a core foundational portion of our foot and ankle product portfolio and will be key to exiting the year at well above market rates of growth for our foot and ankle business,” Robert Palmisano, president and chief executive officer of Wright Medical, stated in the release.
