GIRO™ Growth Modulation System
Note: This system is currently in a limited market release and is not available in most regions
The GIRO™ Growth Modulation System is a tether device intended for guided growth and deformity correction. It is indicated for pediatric patients to aid in the correction of angular deformities of long bones and limb length discrepancy.
The GIRO is a coupling assembly comprised of two 2.5 mm thick couplings linked via a multifilament cable. The flexible tether assembly is intended to behave similarly to a two-hole plate with the added benefit of multi-directional flexibility and low profile due to its advanced contouring of the bone surface.
All components are manufactured in medical grade stainless steel. The GIRO is offered in two family sizes, 4.5 and 6.0, with lengths ranging from 16 to 32 mm, in 2 mm increments. Corresponding Screws are available from 20 to 35 mm, and Post assemblies, from 40 to 80 mm, both in 5 mm increments.
Features and Benefits:
- Minimally invasive treatment of rotational deformities
- Low profile and bone contouring
- Strong cortex-to-cortex Post fixation for temporary epiphysiodesis
- Cannulated Screws and Posts
