Features & Benefits

  • Cannulated shaft accepts 1.6mm diameter guide wires (threaded and nonthreaded wires available)
  • Hemispherical head ensures optimal annular contact with washers and Synthes plates when screws are angled
  • Standard 3.5mm hexagonal drive is compatible with screwdrivers in other commonly used Synthes sets 
  • Reverse-cutting flutes assist in screw removal
  • Cancellous thread profile uses deep cutting threads with a  large pitch to increase resistance to pullout. The large pitch also accelerates screw insertion and removal
  • Self-drilling, self-tapping screw tip facilitates screw insertion by eliminating the need for predrilling and tapping in most cases
