Order Information

Are the pins for single use?

The pins are designed for single use only. It is very difficult to remove 100% of the bioburden within the threads or flutes of the pins. The straightness and integrity of the pin cannot be guaranteed beyond a single use.

Can the pins be reprocessed?

Reprocessing and reusing single-use devices (SUDs) can save costs and reduce medical waste. Before medical devices can be reprocessed and reused, a third-party or hospital reprocessing department must comply with the same requirements that apply to original equipment manufacturers, including:

  • Submitting documents for premarket notification or approval.
  • Registering reprocessing firms and listing all products.
  • Submitting adverse event reports.
  • Tracking devices whose failure could have serious outcomes.
  • Correcting or removing from the market unsafe devices.
  • Meeting manufacturing and labeling requirements.

How are the Precision Pins different from other pins?

The Precision Smart Pin is a giant step forward to improve accuracy in total knee arthroplasties, whether you are using Computer Navigation or traditional methods. The trocar tip design allows the Precision Pin to engage sclerotic or uneven bone without skiving. The thread count and pitch of the Precision Pin are designed specifically to allow smooth effortless insertion into the bone. The thread design of the Precision Pin does not require you to engage the second cortex, thus decreasing the risk of stress risers and fracture. The Precision Pin leaves a smaller hole than a similar sized traditional drill bit and compresses bone rather than evacuates bone to further reduce the risk of fracture.*
