Challenge: Radiation Exposure
TRIGEN◊ SURESHOT◊ Distal Targeting System
Achieve perfect circles while minimizing the use of radiation. Real-time video feedback ensures the proper screw orientation relative to the distal interlocking holes.
Distal locking was 100% successful on 50 procedures using the TRIGEN SURESHOT System.1
Distal locking time was reduced by an average of 48% compared to the standard fluoroscopy technique.1
Regarding radiation emission, fluoroscopy time was reduced by an average of 31 seconds which is the equivalent to approximately 0.663 rad.1
