  • 1. What is HyProCure®?
  • 2. HyProCure
    Talar stabilization stent
  • 3. HyProCure - Internal
    HyProCure is placed beneath the neck of the ankle bone (talus) to stabilize its triplane plane motion on the hindfoot bones (calcaneus & navicular) or tarsal mechanism.
    HyProCure is always working, unlike external devices such as arch supports/orthotics, braces, and splints.
  • 4. HyProCureInternal Permanent Solution
  • 5. HyProCure – Extra-osseous
    HyProCure is placed in between 2 bones (talus & calcaneus).
    It is not inserted into any bone.
    HyProCure is placed into a naturally open area (sinus) that is formed by the undersurface of the talus and upper surface of the calcaneus (heel bone).
  • 6. HyProCure – Extra-articular
    HyProCure is placed in between joints but NOT into a joint.
    It is not placed into a joint-very important point.
    There is no cartilage within the open space where HyProCure is placed only soft tissues.
  • 7. HyProCure – Talar Stabilization
    Talus/Talar is the ankle bone.
    HyProCure prevents the partial dislocation of the talus on the calcaneus (heel bone).
    This prevents excessive abnormal motion of the hindfoot bones.
  • 8. TaloTarsal Joint
    The ankle bone (talus/talar/talo) forms 4 joints with the hindfoot bones- calcaneus and navicular (tarsal bones).
    The motion of the talus on the hindfoot bones must be considered as 1 functional unit.
  • 9. TaloTarsal Mechanism
    4 separate articulations acting as 1 physical unit
    3 bones
    Completely unique joint configurations
    Triplane motion: Supination/Pronation
    Malposition of one facet = malposition of the other 3 facets.
    Bottom of the talus
  • 10. Normal Alignment
    The talus is supposed to sit on top of the calcaneus.
    Each half the joint should be in constant contact.
    Canal/sinus (Sinus Tarsi) in between the two bones should always be “open”.
    Sinus tarsi
  • 11. TaloTarsal Dislocation-Partial
    When the talus slips off its normal position on the calcaneus this closes (obliterates) the sinus tarsi and leads to excessive abnormal motion to the hindfoot and places an excessive strain on the supporting soft tissues (ligaments and tendons).
  • 12. So What Does HyProCure Fix?
  • 13. HyProCure stabilizes the Talus
    HyProCure transforms the closed space of the sinus tarsi back into its normal “open” space.
    It prevents the excessive abnormal motion of the hindfoot.
    This also decreases the excessive abnormal forces acting on the soft tissues.
  • 14. Why is talar stabilization important?
  • 15. If there is a recurrent partial dislocation of the talus on the tarsal mechanism…
    …with every step taken and while standing there are excessive strains placed on the joints, soft tissues, and bony structures not only affecting the foot but there can be a negative impact on the legs, knees, hips, pelvis, shoulder, neck and skull.
    This leads to: TaloTarsal Dislocation Syndrome.
  • 16. TaloTarsal Dislocation Syndrome
    These are the “effects” from the “cause”.
    Scientific literature has long recognized the fact that excessive/hypermobile hindfoot is the lead cause of many deformities of the musculoskeletal system.
    If we stabilize the hindfoot (talotarsal mechanism) then we can reduce/eliminate these secondary conditions.
  • 17. TaloTarsal Dislocation leads to…
    Soft Tissue Strain on the
    Plantar fascia
    Posterior Tibial Tendon
    Tarsal Tunnel
    Posterior Tibial Nerve
    Bone deformities
    1st ray deformities
    Hallux limitis
    Tailor’s bunionette
    Navicular drop/sag
    Adductovarus toes
    Flexor stabilization hammer toes
    Biomechanical problems.
    Heel valgus
    Abductory twist
    “too many toes” sign
    Posterior Tibial Nerve
  • 18. There is a chain reaction due to the talus slipping off its normal alignment.
  • 19. 2 Weeks Post-OpThe Knees
  • 20. If we stabilize the TTM than we can also help the rest of the body.
  • 21. We are not saying:
    That we can cure foot, knee, leg, hip, pelvic, back, shoulder, or neck deformities with HyProCure.
    However, we are saying that by reducing the excessive motion and strain to the rest of the body many times these symptoms are either reduce or completely eliminated.
    If you fix the “cause” than the “effects” should disappear.
  • 22. HyProCure History
    FDA 510(k) approval 2004
    As of December 31st 2010- Over 10,000 have been placed nationally and internationally combined.
    Used by both podiatric and orthopedic foot surgeons, globally.
  • 23. Why HyProCure?
    There are many “subtalar” implants available, however, HyProCure is completely unique.
    HyProCure functions in a completely different fashion, is placed deeper than any other device, and has the best anatomic fit.
    There is a difference.
