Duraface® short fixation half-pins are designed to maximize pin stiffness when placing ESF half-pins into shallow bone applications. Type I-b frames applied to the radius are a common example. Keeping the TRO junction close to the bone maximizes the length of the larger diameter pin shaft between clamp and bone; better resisting deflection under load.

Duraface® short half-pins are available only in no-point (NP) versions which feature a truncated, blunt trocar that improves surgeon safety, decreases patient morbidity and requires pre-drilling. .

Implant Quality 316LVM Stainless Steel. U.S. patent #8,282,676.
