Paragon 28 Launches Phantom® Metatarsal Shortening System
Tuesday, April 25, 2023
Paragon 28, Inc. has announced the launch of its Phantom® Metatarsal Shortening System which features a first in-kind intramedullary device for fixation of in-line shortening osteotomies of the lesser metatarsals. These osteotomies are preformed to prevent metatarsalgia and floating toe, two of the most frequently addressed foot and ankle pathologies. The system includes a patent pending cut guide allowing for increased precision when performing the correction.
The Phantom® Metatarsal Shortening System bolsters Paragon 28’s forefoot and bunion solutions offering, which includes the TenoTac™, Paratrooper™, HammerTube™, Gorilla® Precision™ Lapidus Plate, and Phantom® MIS Lapidus Nail. With this comprehensive portfolio, Paragon 28® provides its customers with a single source to address their forefoot and bunion needs.
Paragon 28® is grateful for the significant contributions that Mark Myerson, MD, Jose Sanhudo, MD, and Lew Schon, MD, made in the design of this system.
