Staples, Bone

Definition : Staples designed for fixation of bones. These staples are usually U-shaped metallic wires with tapered legs including barbs (i.e., serrated legs) to avoid "backing out" after they are driven into the bones. The staples are typically delivered by special appliers (e.g., staple drivers). Bone staples are mostly used as general fixation devices in orthopedic procedures such as shoulder ligament repair and corrective bone procedures than involve cutting of bone (osteotomy); they are also used in displaced scaphoid fractures and other orthopedic procedures.
