Merete has received FDA 510(k) clearance to market its SCARFix™ Plate for
the fixation of the Scarf Osteotomy in Hallux Valgus repair.

This novel plate is designed to provide a stronger osteotomy fixation in comparison to the two screw fixation thus allowing early weight bearing by minimizing displacement, proximal stress fractures and troughing concerns.
The plate is low profile and anatomically contoured to fit the first metatarsal and applies both angled and locking screws.


The annual meeting of the AAOS American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons took place from March 11 – 15, 2014 at the Morial Convention Center in New Orleans, Louisiana.

The most important orthopedic meeting in America was well visited by Surgeons and Sales Representatives from all over the world.

This year the visitors were able to learn more about the new products presented by Merete Medical Inc. The MetaFix PlantarMax foot plate as the first plantar/medial Lapidus fixation plate caught the attention of the attendees.

We are looking forward to next year's AAOS annual meeting in Las Vegas, where Merete Medical will be present for the 9th time in a row to present new, modern implants for the benefit of the patients and surgeons!


MeetingInternational Meeting of Experts in Berlin on the subject "Treatment of major defects“

November 10, 2012 - Merete Medical GmbH in Germany organized the international „Experts meet Experts“ meeting for orthopedic and trauma surgeons. Subject of the meeting was the development of prothetic treatments of defects in diaphysial bones and in the knee joint due to metastases, infections and traumata.
