Herbert Screws Uses
Herbert Screws are designed for the management of fractures where minimal tissue coverage makes standard screw use inappropriate or where
extreme precision in fragment alignment is imperative. Such locations might include fractures of the:
Olecranon and malleolar region
- 2.5mm Screws are indicated for fixation of fractures and nonunions of small bones and small bone arthrodeses, including scaphoid fractures; intraarticular fractures of the tarsals, metatarsals, carpals and metacarpals; bunionectomies and osteotomies; arthrodeses of small joints (e.g. phalanges); fractures of the patella, ulna and radial styloid.
- 3mm Screws are intended for fixation of intra-articular and extra-articular fractures and nonunions of small bones and small bone ragments; arthrodeses of small joint; bunionectomies and osteotomies, including scaphoid and other carpal bones, metacarpals, tarsals, metatarsals, patella, ulnar styloid, capitellum, radial head and radial styliod.
- 4mm Screws are indicated for fracture fixation, reconstruction, osteotomy, and arthrodesis of various bones and bone fragments including joint fusions (arthrodeses) in the foot and fixation of intra-articular fractures of the humerus, femur and tibia.
