VetKISS™ screws share a common 3.0 mm shaft that utilizes a single, precision driver across all screw diameters (1.0, 1.4, and 1.6 mm). Once locked, VetKISS™ screws should be rocked to and fro along the long axis of the plate as to remove shafts leaving the hex screw head in place. Screws can be removed using the appropriately sized hex driver. Most surgeons will install three or more screws to maintain reduction and stability before removing screw shafts. 316LVM stainless steel.
