ProClamp

Description:

The ProClamp is made from medical grade 301 Half-Hardness Stainless Steel. The ProClamp is single use only. It serves 3 primary purposes in total knee arthroplasty:

  1. Protects patella:  The ProClamp safely protects the resected patella by using spring force and a sturdy spike on the inside to prevent the ProClamp from moving or sliding off the resected patella.
  2. MIS Friendly:  The ProClamp has a low-profile design that allows for easy use of MIS instrumentation.
  3. Retracting patella:  Retracting the patella is a challenging aspect of total knee replacement.  The ProClamp when used with the ProRetract retractor serves as a novel retractor that allows for the surgeon to effectively “joystick” the patella.  This accomplishes three primary goals:
    1. Visualization:  Improves ability to work in the lateral aspect of the knee.
    2. Quad tendon:  Reduces constant need for bulky retractors to be placed on the outside of the lateral tibial plateau, which can help minimize disruption of the quad tendon.
    3. Patellar ligament:  Helps with the ability to prevent peeling or avulsing of the ligament from the tibial tubercle.
