Clavicle fractures are one of the most common fractures that are increasingly treated surgically. An increase of 705% in the past decade has been described.[1,2]

The Anser Clavicle Pin may offer specific advantages for patients and hospitals.

Advantages hospitals:

User-friendly design in combination with a intuitive surgical technique supported by a small instrument set may help to reduce surgical time

One-size-fits-all device, eliminating the need to stock multiple plate shapes and sizes will help reduce storage space. The Anser Clavicle Pin comes in a sterilized packaging.

 

One small dedicated instrument set is needed for the implantation of the Anser Clavicle Pin itself.
