DynaClip Forte® Bone Fixation System

The DynaClip Forte® Bone Fixation System excels in performance, comfort, and reliability. Designed for the most demanding weight-bearing applications, such as Lapidus (1st TMT) fusion, the 4-leg configuration with a broad bridge provides additional compression and rotational stability, representing the ultimate choice in NiTiNOL staples.

Forte Features

Features & Benefits

  • Dynamic Compression: The superelastic NiTiNOL construction and broader bridge with added curvature allows for maximum maintained compression across the fusion site.
  • Improved Rotational Stability: The 4-leg configuration and improved dynamic compression provide additional fixation points in the bone to prevent rotation.
  • Strength & Durability: Patented robust design ensures the staple resists failure longer under cyclic bending conditions.
  • Low Profile: Tapered, low profile bridge eliminates any prominence or patient irritation.

Design Rationale

Competitor 4-leg staple designs possess a flat bridge that doesn’t generate compression, thus relying on the recovery of the legs alone for compression. The narrower legs also create stress concentrations at the weakest points of the staple under bending conditions, increasing the likelihood for implant failure once the patient begins weight-bearing. Peer-reviewed studies report these competitor staples breaking in up to 11% of patients.”1

In contrast, the DynaClip Forte’s patented 4-leg design features a broad, low-profile bridge that distributes stresses across the bridge away from the legs (see image to right), and allows for compression to be generated through the bridge.

Forte Steps

Consolidated, Efficient Instrumentation

  • All instrumentation packaged in ONE sterile Disposable Procedure Pack
  • Universal Drill Guide also serves as Sizer
  • DynaClip Forte Implant provided pre-loaded on a low-profile disposable Inserter that allows for accurate leg positioning

Demonstrated Elite Performance

DynaClip Forte staples can be used in a variety of procedures, including Lapidus, 2nd/3rd TMT, C-C, T-N and other midfoot and hindfoot fusions. DynaClip Forte can be implanted alongside 2-leg DynaClip® staples, the DynaNail® TTC Fusion System, and the DynaNail Mini® (as pictured in CC-fusion example).
