ENGLEWOOD -- Paragon 28 announced another addition to its hindfoot fusion portfolio in 2020 with the launch of the Silverback Posterior Plating System.
Paragon said the Silverback Ankle Fusion Plating System now offers three distinct approaches (anterior, lateral, or posterior). The Posterior Plating System includes 16 low profile anatomically contoured plates to address soft tissue closure and accommodate varied patient anatomies and deformities.
All plates are contained within the Silverback system and delivered in one case and tray which includes all joint perpetration instrumentation to complete the arthrodesis, the company said.
"We are excited to add these complementary plates to the Silverback Plating System,” said Albert DaCosta, Paragon 28's president and CEO.
“This will allow us to continue to provide versatile optionality to handle the needs of these hindfoot fusion patients. Working with our design team, we built on the success of the lateral and anterior plates with directed crossing screws and optimized compression to provide an ideal option for the posterior approach.
“These anatomically designed plates work with the hindfoot anatomy and provide stability to the tension side of the joint."
The addition of the Silverback Posterior Plating System bolsters Paragon 28's Precision Ankle Solutions product offering, which includes the Gorilla Ankle Fracture Plating System, APEX 3D Total Ankle Replacement, Phantom TTC/TC Nail System, and Phantom ActivCore Nail System.
With this comprehensive portfolio, Paragon 28 said it provides customers with innovative ankle solutions for trauma, arthritis, and limb salvage.
