Talus screw for surgical correction of flat foot and/or rearfoot valgus
– Emispherical head
– Easy to use
The SPHERUS talus screw was developed by the Paediatric Orthopedic and Traumatological Division of the “Istituto Ortopedico Rizzoli”. It is designed for surgical correction of flat foot or rearfoot valgus in children.
This talus screw has proved particularly effective in that the ample area of contact and support of its base on the floor and walls of the sinustarsi enable it to stabilize the calcaneus by distributing the pressure loads over a wider area, thus reducing to a minimum the risk of the talus screw becoming mobile or penetrating the calcaneus.
The material used is Ti 6A1 4V ELI, a titanium alloy that guarantees optimum biocompatibility and mechanical strength. Anodizing surface treatment gives the screw various colors according to length
