Like the current staples, paired pilot holes which are perfectly distanced apart and parallel are essential to the smooth insertion of the staple and to maintain the precompression on the wedge. For the Mini Staple these are 1.5mm holes 8mm apart.
A new staple drill guide is required. The Combined Wire Bender / Staple Drill Guide for Small/Mini Staples can be used for both Mini and Small Staples.
A new 1.5mm Staple System Pin is also required.
By public request, we have developed and are now pleased to launch a smaller, low profile system to allow easier placement in particular on smaller patients.
