OssAbility Osteotomy Guide

Osteotomy Guide

Most veterinary saw and drill guides rely on your experience and subjective decision making. Our Osteotomy Guide aligns cutting and drilling tools in the correct orientation. Controlling where you position the osteotomy helps maintain the integrity of the tibia and reduces the opportunity for complications. Configuring the Osteotomy Guide prior to surgery allows you to concentrate on managing your patient. Crafted from hardened medical-grade stainless steel, our Osteotomy Guide will last a lifetime.

Product Features:

  • Control the final tibial crest thickness, osteotomy length, obliquity, and termination position
  • Calibrated to deliver a tibial crest that is at least 11 mm thick at the level of patellar tendon insertion and 5 mm thick at the Maquet hole
  • Secure the guide firmly onto the patient
  • Match the contours of the tibia even when there is a buttress

OssAbility Advancement Levers

Advancement Levers

Our Advancement Levers allow you to advance the tibial crest, in a controlled manner, for easy implant insertion. We have calibrated the dimensions, so when you turn the Advancement Lever, the Wedge Implant will fit perfectly. You only have to advance it once.

Product Features:

  • One side is sharp, and the other is rounded, so you can rotate it smoothly without slipping
  • These markings help you position the Advancement Lever precisely in the osteotomy, immediately before advancement
  • Calibrated, so the Wedge Implant fits just right
  • The Advancement Levers double as a plate contouring instruments

OssAbility Wedge Implant

Wedge Implant

Our 3D printed biocompatible titanium Wedge Implants matches the contours of the patient’s tibia. The Wedge Implant responds mechanically to stress and strain to promote rapid bone ingrowth and long-term strength. The combination of a load-bearing patient-matched implant and interconnected porous structure means bone grafting is not required. Wedge Implants are available in common sizes to treat medium to large breed dogs.

Product Features:

  • Manufactured using an industrial 3D printing process with stringent quality control
  • The scaffold is porous and mimics the properties of trabecular bone
  • The Wedge Implant has a very high coefficient of friction that secures it in place
