WishBone Medical’s EpiFIXTM System is an effective growth control plating solution for temporary hemiepiphysiodesis, a proven treatment with low complication rates.1
Designed for use in both upper and lower extremities, EpiFIXTM curved plates allow the physician to redirect the growth angle of the long bone, gradually correcting the angular deformity in pediatric patients with open physis.2, 3 This surgical solution is recommended as a first line of treatment, preferred over major surgical intervention, such as osteotomies.1 Immediately following the procedure, the patient is allowed mobility and weight bearing.2
- 2-Hole and 4-Hole plates available in 10 sizes (5 ea.)
- Low-profile plates designed to conform to patient anatomy
- Central pilot hole designed to precisely place plate over physis
- Protruding bosses designed to elevate plate for reduced contact with growth plate and periosteum
- Recessed screw holes designed to hold the drill guides securely and allow low-profile screw seating
- Complete procedure kits available in stainless steel or titanium
