Staples, Bone, Compression

Definition : Staples designed to produce compression and rigid fixation across cancellous bone surfaces. These devices may consist of two-leg, mechanically adjusted staples or one-piece staples that are reshaped to apply compression using a heating electrical current after its implantation. Compression bone staples are used in fracture fixation, fixation of the joints (e.g., knee, shoulder) with proliferation of bone cells (i.e., arthrodesis), bone fusion sites, and in other orthopedic procedures.
