Introduction Chapter Contents Title The PRO-TOE® VO Hammertoe Fixation System represents a simple and effective style of hammertoe implant technology. This technique describes the PRO-TOE® VO – a “V”-shaped blade-screw implant that seeks to provide optimal fixation in the proximal and middle phalanx using an “open” technique. Available in 5 sizes, the PRO-TOE® VO system provides sizing versatility for a variety of indications and anatomical conditions. »» Surgical Simplicity – One-piece stainless steel implants provide fixation strength with extended working time and no freezer storage. »»...

Intended Use Chapter Title The PRO-TOE® VO implant was designed to facilitate intermedullary stability and fixation of the lesser proximal interphalangeal joints for hammertoe corrective procedures. However, the implant cannot address concurrent soft tissue imbalance causing contracture or hyperextension at the metatarsophalangeal joint, an elongated metatarsal resulting in a excessively long digit, or a hallux valgus deformity. Therefore, it is highly recommended that additional procedures are performed to correct these deficiencies, including, but not limited to, soft tissue capsular...

Device Description Implant Options and Sizing The PRO-TOE® VO Hammertoe Fixation System is composed of ten implant options that enable specific sizing for hammertoe fixation of the lesser toes. The implants are available in five sizes to accommodate varying anatomical and bone quality needs, and two angle configurations – a straight 0o and an angled 10o option. | TABLE A and | FIGURE 1 These two orientations allow the surgeon to obtain a neutral or plantarflexed toe. The 2.0mm and 2.4mm screw sizes were previously offered as the PRO-TOE® VO Small and Large options, and address most...

Instrumentation Kits The PRO-TOE® VO instrumentation is available standard as a single-use sterile-packed instrument kit (PN 45710500), or as a reusable and sterilizable instrument kit for purchase from Wright Medical Technology, Inc. (PN 4571KIT1). | FIGURE 2 The sterile-packed instrument kit is provided in a foam clamshell for single surgery use and is composed of several components that provide complete instrumentation required for implantation (1.1mm K-wire, Broaches, Driver Shaft, Driver Handle, and Driver Tips). While the functioning of these instruments is similar to that of the...

Surgical Technique Incision In preparation for implantation of the PRO-TOE® VO implant, an elliptical or longitudinal incision is created dorsally over the PIP joint. | FIGURE 3 | FIGURE 3 Elliptical incision (left) Longitudinal incision (right) NOTE: To provide a better platform for fixation of the implant blade, minimal resection of the distal cartilage of the PIP joint is recommended, leaving the middle phalanx subchondral plate intact. Joint Preparation: Proximal Phalanx After the incision is made, the joint surface of the proximal phalanx should be resected. Avoid excessive resection...

Implant Sizing Depending on the size of the proximal phalanx, degree of plantar correction desired, and quality of the bone, the appropriately sized implant is selected. The implant sizes are shown in | FIGURE 6 and described in | TABLE A. Sizing x-ray templates are available in physical and digital form to assist in determining optimal HAMMERTOE IMPLANT Chapter 4 Surgical Technique

Pre-Drilling: Proximal Phalanx After resection and debridement of the PIP joint, select the 1.1mm K-wire and pre-drill into the center of the proximal phalanx. The K-wire assists in preparing the phalange for insertion of the screw into the proximal phalanx. | FIGURE 8 CAUTION: Avoid extending the K-wire into the metatarsophalangeal joint. | FIGURE 8 K-wire pre-drill preparation in the proximal and middle phalanx. NOTE: The K-wires have depth laser markings which correspond to the variable length of screws. | TABLE B Depth Line Depth Line 3 Depth Line 2 Depth Line 1 Pre-Drilling: Middle...

Broaching: Middle Phalanx NOTE: Broach blades are slightly longer and more narrow compared to corresponding implant blade. Preparation for the implant blade insertion into the middle phalanx is accomplished with a Broach (also referred to as a Rasp), which is provided in three sizes according to the blade width. | TABLE C The Broaches can be inserted into the Driver Handles of the single-use or reusable kit, and then the tip can be positioned over the predrilled hole. The Broach is then inserted while gently grasping the middle phalanx to provide resistance. Fully seat the Broach until its...

Loading the Driver The PRO-TOE® VO implants come preloaded into a Driver Tip, which allows easy loading of the implant onto the Driver Shaft without concern about orientation or sizing. | FIGURE 14 The silicone O-ring on the Driver Tip will allow a tactile snap when it is seated onto the Driver Shaft. The Driver Shaft can then be assembled to the Driver Handle. For the single-use instrumentation, the Driver Shaft is inserted into the plastic Handle, and is secured using the set screw. For the reusable instrumentation, the Driver Shaft (PN 45719002) is connected to the Driver Handle (PN...

Screw Insertion: Proximal Phalanx NOTE: It is highly recommended to leave the 1-2 threads slightly proud to allow for increased blade penetration into the middle phalanx. | FIGURE 17 Position the tip of the screw over the pre-drilled hole of the proximal phalanx, and advance the screw, monitoring under fluoroscopic guidance to ensure placement down the center of the intramedullary canal. | FIGURE 16 When 1-2 screw threads are left proud, the position of the blade provides more optimal fixation into the diaphysis of the middle phalanx, minimizing the potential for postoperative distraction...
