IMEX® Veterinary, Inc. was founded in 1990 with the mission of providing veterinary surgeons with premium, affordable external skeletal fixation pin technology. Since 1990, IMEX® has increased pin diameter selection, added pin length choices, and provided thread options unmatched by others. No other company offers a selection of veterinary ESF pins as extensive.

IMEX® was the first company to supply positive-profile ESF pins to the veterinary surgeon. Interface® and Centerface® positive thread profile fixation pins represent the gold standard for threaded, positive profile veterinary fixation pins. 

While the Interface® half-pin is the gold standard of postive proifle half-pins, the end-threaded ESF pin of choice is the IMEX® Duraface® half-pin. This pin represents the first major ESF pin improvement in veterinary surgery in more than 20 years offering increased stiffness, increased strength and longer cyclic fatigue life at the same cost as Interface® fixation pins. Drill bits and drill sleeves required for use are the same as those with positive profile pins allowing the surgeon to utilize this new ESF pin technology today.

While our product line includes a variety of veterinary orthopedic products, IMEX® continues to maintain focus on our original goal of being the leader in external fixation pin technology.

DuraFace® half-pins offer increased stiffness, increased strength and longer cyclic fatigue life without an increase in pin tract diameter in the corresponding bone. Available in sizes comparable to Interface® half-pins.

Interface® fixation half-pins are end-threaded with positive profile threads. Standard thread profile pins can be utilized at all bone locations.

Centerface® fixation full-pins are centrally-threaded with a positive-thread profile. The standard thread profile can be used at all bone locations. 

IMEX® pin charts are designed to assist the veterinarian, veterinary technician, office manager, or purchasing agent to identify and select the appropriate pins and drill bits desired.
