Arthrex AR-4151DS Trim-it Drill Pin 1.5 x 100mm-w 1 pin, 1 K-wire, 1 Tamp and 1 Guide Sleeve

Part # AR-4151DS Exp 1/17, 2/16

The bioabsorbable Arthrex AR-4151DS Trim-it Drill Pin can be loaded and drilled using the standard pin driver
for arthrodesis and osteotomy fixation.

The Trim-It Drill Pin offers the surgeon the advantage of an all-in-one system. Pin placement made easier. By using a standard quick-connect pin driver, the surgeon can drill and place the pin in one step. The bioabsorbable portion of the pin is seated in the pin driver during the drilling phase. The metal tip (2 mm) is drilled past the far cortex and cut off with the Bone Cutting Forceps.

In cases of extra hard bone stock, or if using the Arthrex AR-4151DS Trim-it Drill Pin, a metal “predrill” K-wire is used to create a pilot hole. The Bone Tamp in the disposables kit is used to countersink the pin below the skin surface. It’s that simple!

The Arthrex AR-4151DS Trim-it Drill Pin is recommended for hammertoe use only.

In Perfect sealed condition but past expiration date. Not for human use in the US.

Expiration dates have mostly to do with sterilization and not the integrity of the product. The manufacturers sterilize the products after they are packaged and it lasts so many years. The only products we caution customers about are ones that are absorbable or drug coated.
