[...] Key Method A retrospective study was performed of 31 feet in 27 patients who underwent arthrodesis or an osteotomy fixated using compression staples. OSStaples (BME, San Antonio, Texas) were used in 18 feet, and Memodyn staples (Telos Medical, Fallston, Maryland) were used in 13 feet. A total of 48 compression staples were implanted.Expand Abstract
