Outcomes & Evidence

CCI in Hammertoe Fixation – Scott E. Marsh D.P.M., F.A.C.F.A.S.

This report presents a case in which the Hammertoe Continuous Compression Implant was the first compressive extramedullary implant to be used as a treatment for Hammertoe.**

CCI in Hammertoe Fixation - Maria Romano McGann, D.O.

This report features a fixation where the Hammertoe Continuous Compression Implant was able to provide enough stability that the patient was able to comfortably weight-bear at 4 weeks, with signs of fusion at 8 weeks.**

Features & Benefits

High Stability

Compared to intramedullary implants, our DePuy Synthes Hammertoe CCI implants provide greater rotation stability and distraction resistance (compared to IM implants)1,2 while maintaining continuous compression throughout the healing interval. 3* 

Bone Stock Preservation

DePuy Synthes Hammertoe CCI implants are designed to avoid the bone deficit that occurs when explanting other intramedullary fixation methods.4+ 

Easy Removal

Designed to require fewer steps to remove (compared to IM implants) which could save time in the O.R. and could lead to cost savings.5,6
