Wright Medical Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: WMGI), a global orthopaedic medical device company, today announced the full commercial launch of the ORTHOLOC™ 3Di Reconstruction Plating System for foot and ankle surgery. The system will be available this month in the U.S. through Wright Medical’s specialized foot and ankle sales force, as well as in select countries outside the U.S. through Wright’s direct and distributor-based sales organization.

The ORTHOLOC™ 3Di Plating System includes a number of anatomical plates, screws and specialized surgical instrumentation used for fracture fixation, osteotomies, and fusions of the foot. This next generation system provides multiple screw options and adds Wright’s ORTHOLOC™ 3Di polyaxial locking technology, which enables the surgeon to adjust the screw trajectory to meet the anatomic requirements of the patient while providing a strong locking construct to promote bone fixation.

“The new ORTHOLOC™ 3Di Reconstruction System offers surgeons a wide range of plate designs to address some of the most common procedures performed by foot and ankle surgeons, including bunion reconstruction and fusions of the first toe,” stated Carroll P. Jones, MD, an orthopedic foot and ankle surgeon with OrthoCarolina Foot and Ankle Institute in Charlotte, North Carolina. “The system’s versatility allows surgeons to choose the best screw sizing and placement to create a robust implant construct, which is crucial for proper bone healing.”

“Along with other planned new product launches, the ORTHOLOC™ 3Di Plating System is a core foundational portion of our foot and ankle product portfolio and will be key to exiting the year at well above market rates of growth for our foot and ankle business,” said Robert Palmisano, President and Chief Executive Officer of Wright Medical. “We expect to expand this system in the future to treat other areas of the foot, including complex midfoot and hindfoot procedures.”
