Centerface® NP (No-Point) fixation full-pins lack the trocar point found on standard Centerface® pins. Pre-drilling is required for pin placement. Lack of a trocar point makes this pin less expensive than trocar pointed Centerface® pins, and potential for injury to the surgeon or patient during pin placement is reduced. Lengths, diameters, and recommended drill bits are common with standard Centerface® pins. IMEX® pin and drill charts can be used for trocar and NP versions. When pre-drilling, this should be the centrally-threaded pin of choice. Implant Quality 316LVM Stainless Steel.
Standard length pins used in the majority of applications while extended length pins (part numbers indicated with an "L") are occasionally used when additional thread length is needed to span areas of larger bone diameter.
Note: 20020 (2.0mm shaft/2.5mm thread) is the largest Centerface® pin recommended for the mini SK® ESF clamp.
