The Talex™ system
represents the evolution of the subtalar implant. Color coded implants and ergonomically designed
comfort-fit instrumentation offer improved intraoperative identification and surgical precision.
Multiple sizes accommodate anatomical differences to address various clinical scenarios and surgical needs.
Talex™ subtalar implants are
an alternative treatment to more complicated surgeries like calcaneal lengthening which have a longer recovery time.
Surgeons trained with Vilex subtalar implants utilize a quick, minimally-invasive outpatient procedure.
The procedure starts with a small incision, typically less than once inch. Through this small incision,
a Talex™ implant is inserted into the sinus tarsi, a natural gap between two bones in the ankle.
The implant is designed to restore the mid-foot bones to their normal orientation.
Cannulated implants and instruments facilitate precise positioning
Axial cut channels and cross holes designed to facilitate soft tissue ingrowth
Grippex™ thread technology designed to improve bite and reduce rotational backout
Patented reverse thread instrument for repositioning or removal
Implants penetrate deeper into the sinus tarsi
Reduced back-weight on lateral side maintains neutral weight balance
Smooth, toroid shaped head provides pivot point for subtalar motion
Hexalobe drive system minimizes stripping and improves driving force
