A New Path to Attractive, Healthy and Happy Toes

As many as 60 million Americans suffer from hammertoes, a bending of the toe that is unsightly and often painful. Hammertoes are more common among women due to their tendency to wear tight, narrow shoes but the condition affects men as well. The median age of hammertoe sufferers is 52 – by which time they likely have logged 75,000 miles on their feet.

If left untreated, hammertoes become more pronounced and painful often requiring surgery. Up to now, wires were used for surgical correction. In this technique, one or more wires are inserted through the end of the toe and through the bone. These wires stay in place for four to six weeks, protruding from the end of the toes. As would be expected, simple things such as working, driving, bathing and even sleeping are difficult while these wires are in place.

A treatment breakthrough, called nextradesis, is now available. It is an advanced surgical technique for happier toes that does not require insertion of wires. The Nextra Hammertoe Correction System allows patients to return to work, bathe and sleep without unsightly, painful protruding wires…waking up to happy toes.

Nextradesis benefits to the patient:

  • No disruption of healthy joint as seen from the use of k-wires and screws
  • No wires sticking out of the toes for 4 to 6 weeks
  • Retained bone compression and implant stability to assist the bone’s natural healing properties
  • No risk of pin tract infection
  • Normal bathing, hygiene and comfort during sleep without a wire

Nextradesis benefits to the surgeon:

  • Stability - Optimized thread and sizing for secure implant-to-complex bone interface
  • Compression - RevLock™ ratcheting cam system allowing for natural bone healing
  • Retained bone compression and implant stability to assist the bone’s natural healing properties
  • Adjustability - Patented Reverse Locking System for total surgeon control and reversibility
  • Precision - Unprecedented

The RevLock Adjustable Locking Feature is at the core of the Nextra Implant’s adjustability and versatility. It allows for provisional ratcheted locking or even complete disengagement if the surgeon wants to reposition the implant. In fact, through its unique patented features, the Nextra System offers the foot and ankle surgeon greater control in adapting to patients' individual anatomy versus adapting the patient to the product.
