TOV (Talus of Vilex) and Talex Subtalar Implants
The TOV family of subtalar implants features the original TOV implant and Talex implant, the evolution of the subtalar implant for flatfoot correction
Color-coded, radio-opaque trial sizers and implants for intraoperative identification and placement verification
Cannulated implants and instrumentation facilitate precise implant positioning in the sinus tarsi
Patented reverse thread removal method and positioning technique
Minimially invasive procedure
A New Choice for Talotarsal Stabilization and Flatfoot Correction
Talex Subtalar Stabilization System Features
Toroid shaped titanium implants head designed to realign the rotational axis of talar motion and stem for medial anchoring in the sinus tarsi.
Available in 6 anatomic sizes to meet most clinical needs
Implants are engineered to more closely match the anatomy of the sinus tarsi
Implants feature Grippex™ threads designed to improve bite and to reduce potential of rotational backout
Axial cut channels and cross holes designed to facilitate soft tissue ingrowth
Radio-opaque trials accurately match corresponding implant geometry and allow verification of placement.
Hexalobe drive improves driving force
Ergonomically designed comfort-fit instrumentation and removal tool
TOV System Features and Benefits
Conical titanium implants designed to accommodate the anatomy of the sinus tarsi and facilitate correction of flatfoot deformities
Non-cutting threads designed to preserve anatomy and minimize discomfort while resisting implant migration or displacement
Tapered implant design allows gradual adjustment of correction
Implants available in 5 sizes to meet most patient anatomy. Additional sizes are available upon request
Radio-opaque trials accurately match corresponding implant geometry and allow verification of placement
Hex drive mechanism
System features patented removal tool
Subtalar Implant Removal Technique
If a TOV or Talex subtalar implant is to be removed whether as part of the initial surgical procedure or during a subsequent procedure, a dedicated removal tool has been created for this purpose. This process may be performed with or without the guide wire in place.
Both the Talex and TOV implants are designed with this feature and each system contains a dedicated removal device.
