A healthcare professional must always rely on his or her own professional clinical judgement when deciding whether to use a particular product when treating a particular patient. Stryker does not dispense medical advice and recommends that healthcare professionals be trained in the use of any particular product before using it in a procedure or surgery. Products may not be available in all markets because product availability is subject to regulatory and/or medical practices in individual markets.
The subtalar joint (talocalcaneal joint) is a common source of arthritis, often seen in hindfoot deformity, inflammatory conditions, or following calcaneus fractures. An arthrodesis in this location fuses the joint to eliminate movement, thus helping to correct deformity and improve symptoms.
