Metalogix Proud to Design First Open Ex-Fix Design

Headquartered in San Antonio, Metalogix received FDA 510(k) premarket approval for the Revolution External Plating System, an open ring fixation system designed for long bone fractures, limb lengthening and correction of bone deformities.

“I’m proud to say Metalogix is the first to design and bring this concept to market, creating a pin-to-bar killing system that is revolutionizing external fixation systems,” says Metalogix CEO Douglas Klein. “We focused on posterior freedom and definitive fixation, making it easier for surgeons to manipulate bone and increase range of motion to optimize healing.”

The Revolution External Plating System is an all-in-one, definitive treatment system for long-bone trauma, charcot, foot and ankle, congenital deformities and pelvic trauma, and indicated for adult and pediatric subgroups, except newborns.

“For years, surgeons have been limited when using external fixation systems – the circular, closed design often made it challenging to provide the highest-level of care to patients,” says James McWilliam, M.D. “This system offers unprecedented versatility in an external fixation system.”

Other indications include stabilization of open and/or unstable proximal and/or distal tibial fractures, hand, foot and long-bone fusions, bone or soft tissue deformity correction and fracture neutralization stabilized with limited internal fixation.
