CHI® System Benefits
  • The Vilex (CHI) Cannulated Hemi Implant System facilitates intraoperative decision-making, providing two surgical options in one tray.

  • Five sizes of phalangeal (base) or metatarsal (head) implants are available in a compact tray.

  • Cannulated system offers precise placement of implants, simplifying surgery and reducing OR times.

  • Color-coded implants and sizers for easy intraoperative identification.

  • Implants designed to minimize bone resection in order to preserve limb length and soft tissue structures.

  • Cannulated hemi implants offer the patient and surgeon options for future care, including fusion if necessary.

  • Cannulation offers reproducible ease of use, proper placement, simplified removal, and reduced trauma for the patient.

  • Implant stem designed to engage the inner cortex of the medullary canal to improve bite and reduce rotational backout.

  • Base and head implants are available with hydroxyapatite coating.

PHALANGEAL BASE
  • Elliptical, concave surface provides ROM for joint arthroplasty and mimics phalangeal base

  • Cannulated system offers precise placement of implant simplifying surgery and reducing OR time

  • Designed to minimize bone resection to preserve limb length and FHB ligament

MET HEAD
  • Circular, convex surface provides ROM for joint arthroplasty and mimics metatarsal head

  • Hydroxyapatite (HA) coated stem and back provide initial stability and facilitate bone in-growth

  • Mirror finished to minimize friction and shaped to maintain ROM without altering foot biomechanics
