3.0 mm Cannulated Screw System

The 3.0 mm Cannulated Screw System is part of a series of cannulated screws being offered by Biomet that range from 3.0 to 8.0 mm. This system contains 3.0 mm Partially Threaded Cannulated Screws, and has improved features compared to previous cannulated screw offerings.

 

Features include: 

  • Increased thread depth designed to improve screw purchase
  • Reduced head size for less screw head prominence
  • Longer length screw options (sterile only) to accommodate surgeon needs
  • Proprietary TiMAX surface treatment has been shown to have increased fatigue strength compared to 316L Electropolished Stainless Steel, Type I Anodized titanium, and machined titanium.1 
  • Hexalobular designed to reduce the likelihood for screw head stripping
  • Enhanced instrumentation for ease of use
