A New Four-Legged Attraction Comes to Kentucky

by Vince Vacketta

Horses aren't the only four-legged attraction worth checking out as surgeons travel to Louisville, Kentucky this week for the AOFAS Annual Seminar. As the use of staple fixation in foot and ankle surgery continues to come into vogue, Medline Industries releases its new TETRA REFLEX Nitinol Staple at the 2023 seminar.

Medline's new staple system, alongside Enovis's Dynaclip Forte, Quattro, and Delta four-legged staples, is the second horse entering the race. This system provides a comprehensive tray that includes reflex discs, joint prep instrumentation, and all the necessary accessories to greatly enhance staple fixation efficiency. If that weren't enough, the new comprehensive system offers a unique targeting guide which makes supplemental screw fixation for bi-planar compression easy and efficient – even after a day on Louisville's infamous Bourbon Trail.

Be on the lookout for new innovations from Medline Industries and get your hands on the REFLEX TETRA Nitinol Staple at this year's AOFAS Annual Seminar.

Vincent Vacketta is a fellowship-trained foot and ankle surgeon at the Midwest Orthopaedic Center in Peoria, Illinois. He specializes in elective surgical reconstruction, sports medicine, and trauma.
