Study Of Triplane Bunion Correction System Shows Strong Results After One Year
Multicenter clinical data presented at the American Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Society annual meeting demonstrated that Lapiplasty® 3D Bunion Correction™ is effective in correcting bunions in three planes.
The average time for bearing weight following surgery was 10.5 days and at an average 13.5 month follow up, 96.7 percent of patients maintained three-plane correction. Study coauthor Paul Dayton, DPM, FACFAS notes the Lapiplasty® Procedure can help the surgeon correct the bunion deformity at the anatomic apex, resulting in more complete correction. He says the system provides simultaneous triplane correction and offers “very consistent and reproducible” results.
