Tecres Endorthesis Screws are an efficient and certified solution for the treatment of valgism in children. Endorthesis screws are available in different versions, according to the surgical technique chosen by the doctor, and are made of biocompatible materials which are constantly developed and improved. Indeed, they are the results of corporate excellence in an ongoing search for highly advanced and specialized products and solutions. Our products truly represent our constant attention to the correct movement of children’s feet, as they walk towards the future.
The purpose of surgical treatment of flat foot is to restore the physiological joint relationships between the talus and the calcaneum. These relationships are maintained for the time necessary for bone restructuring and re-tensioning of the medial capsular ligament structures during the subsequent growth period. Flat-footedness in children is frequently seen in clinical practice (incidence of 4% in children aged ten years). In this latter group, 10% present idiopathic infantile flat-footedness that requires treatment to avoid secondary deformities in adulthood. Calcaneo-Stop surgery is proposed as a conceptually ideal solution for the treatment of calcaneal valgism in children, taking advantage of the self-correction potential in young patients through appropriate stimulation and direction. Tecres proposes two types of endorthesis screw:
Blocks an excessive front divergence between the talus and the calcaneus and the subsequent medial drop of the talus. This is done by inserting an element of proprioceptive stimulus in the tarsal sinus. The application takes place starting from the plantar surface of the calcaneus, thus avoiding aggressive surgery of the tarsal sinus, an area with abundant sensory endings. The Retrograde Endorthesis provides essentially active correction by stimulating self-correction beginning with the proprioceptive receptors in the sinus tarsi.
Ensures that the calcaneum is anatomically unable to react to the lateral process of the talus thanks to the occupation of the calcaneal notch, thereby preventing the closure of the kinetic chain in pronation without lever mechanisms. The Anterograde Endorthesis exerts an essentially passive action by blocking the talus on the vertical-transverse plane.
