Fluoroscopy in Open Reduction & Internal Fixation (ORIF) trauma procedures: It’s the Gold Standard but Can you Trust What you See?

  • Image intensifiers are frequently used in trauma procedures as an intra-operative navigation tool. This technology is used through the procedure for fracture reduction, pin/wire placement, and implant fixation.
  • ‚Äč
  • Did you know image intensifier distortion can significantly alter the intended trajectory of a guidewire? Ward, et. al. found this deviation was approximately 10mm if the guidewire was aimed from the extremity of the image!1
  • Considering the general incidence of non- or mal-union in common trauma procedures is reported to range from 1.9% to over 20%2,3,4,5,6 the influence of distortion is likely a contributing factor.

OPERATE AT EASE: TRUST YOUR FLUORO + CONFIRM YOUR ALIGNMENT + IMPROVE YOUR EFFICIENCY

The Future of ORIF Trauma Surgeries is Here.

Universal by design, this App can be used in any trauma procedures to:

  • Correct Distortion
  • Confirm Reduction and Alignment using multiple tools
  • Reduce eye-balling of instrument Trajectories
  • Improve Efficiency

FINAL FIXATION

Measure screw lengths and optimally place implants by calibrating of images

Confirm Post-op Alignment With Trusted Fluoro Images

EXPERIENCE A NEW LEVEL OF CONTROL IN TRAUMA PROCEDURES

"Until recently, there was no solution in technology to assist us, trauma surgeons, in surgery beyond the image from the c-arm. And that image can have a lot of distortion in it which has an impact on our alignment assessment. I use OrthoGrid Trauma on all my cases, from pilons and elbows to pelvic fractures and there is always a tool that brings value to my reduction or fixation work. But at the very least, I want the distortion corrected on every image so I can operate stress free."
