Fibula Rod System

The Acumed Fibula Rod System offers an alternative approach to traditional fibular plating by providing fracture stability with a minimally invasive surgical technique. Utilizing a targeting guide, the fibula rod and interlocking screws can be inserted through small incisions, which may help minimize valuable surgery room time.

Key Features

  • Minimally Invasive

    The nail is inserted in the distal fibula through a minimal incision. Screws are inserted by making stab incisions to protect the soft tissue envelope and preserve vascularity of the periosteum

  • Streamlined Procedure

    The surgical technique consists of 8 steps from start to finish, streamlining valuable surgery time

  • Anatomically Contoured

    The nail has a 5° bend designed to fit the intramedullary canal of the fibula

  • Targeting Guide

    The targeting guide aids in the anatomic placement of both A/P and M/L screws and allows for syndesmotic screw fixation
