Unlike positive profile fixation pins, Duraface® pins have a shaft diameter that is equal to its thread diameter. Thread diameter options are the same as the corresponding Interface® positive profile pin.
Duraface® pins feature a tapered-run-out (TRO) junction of 2-3mm length where the shaft meets the threads that attenuates the otherwise acute nature of the shaft-thread junction. This TRO portion is not designed for application into the bone and is not included as part of the functional thread length. The functional thread length of Duraface® pins is identical to the comparable Interface® positive profle pin.
Duraface® “short” pins do not have an equivalent length version of Interface® pin.
