Basic Structure Super Staple™ implants are fabricated from nitinol. The Super Staple™ is retained in a cartridge, advanced into bone and released so that the elastic properties of these materials will return the staple to a closed shape. These staples pull together and compress bone as they transition from parallel legs and elongated bridge configuration to an inward leg and shortened bridge configuration. With ideal reduction and good bone quality, this shape change may not be visible as the staple is constrained by bone. Under this condition the implant applies the maximum fixation force and has the greatest potential shape change available. This potential shape change may pull the bone segments together if bone interfacial resorption occurs. This change may be visible if its use facilitates further bone reduction or if bone quality is poor.
