MEMPHIS, Tenn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec 4, 2018--In2Bones Global, Inc. today announced the U.S. commercial market release of the CoLink Afx ® Ankle Fracture System. The system is a collection of five plate families that address traumatic fractures and osteotomies (removal of bone) of the ankle.

Anatomy specific plate options consist of Lateral Fibula, Posterior-Lateral Fibula, One-Third Tubular, Medial Tibia, and Posterior Tibia. Associated 2.7 and 3.5mm cortical screws are offered with innovative CoLink ® VAL- Variable Angle Locking Technology.

The low profile anatomically, designed titanium plates are type II anodized. They provide a stronger smoother surface compared to standard color anodization used in most plates on the market. The ultra-thin plates, along with minimal prominence at the plate and screw head interface, provide additional protection against patients experiencing soft tissue irritation, which can occur with conventional trauma hardware.

“This comprehensive set allows me to fix any pattern of ankle fracture,” says Travis Hanson, MD of  Houston Methodist Orthopedics and Sports Medicine.

“It has every type of plate and screw combination that I need,” he says. “The contoured design of the new CoLink ® Afx System provides increased confidence that my patients will receive a plate that fits their specific anatomy. These are the most low profile plates that I have used around the ankle.”

“We’re very excited about the commercial market release of the CoLink ® Afx System,” says Jon Simon, Sr. Vice President of Marketing at In2Bones. “Expanding our portfolio into the high-volume ankle fracture market with a truly best-in-class product provides tremendous growth opportunities for us heading into 2019.”
