MedShape’s ankle fusion technology earns FDA clearance
MedShape Solutions, a GRA VentureLab company, has garnered FDA 510(k) Clearance of its new DynaNail ankle fusion nail. The DynaNail device uses patented shape memory technology to adapt to changes in the fusion site, maintaining close apposition of the bones and compression across the fusion zone during the post-operative healing process. DynaNail’s co-inventor, surgeon Dr. Doug Paccaccio, said, “DynaNail offers a dynamic, more patient-friendly alternative to bulky external frames that can present significant patient care issues.”
