Bioabsorbable magnesium alloy
The use of MAGNEZIX® implants makes any subsequent implant removal unnecessary, and moreover, it supports the osseous healing process. MAGNEZIX® is bioabsorbable and biocompatible.
Self-tapping screw tip
The self-tapping properties of the screw tip reduce the operation time and simplify the surgical application technique.
Cannulated screw (CS 2.7, CS 3.2; CSc</sup 4.8)
The screw is cannulated (hollow) to allow controlled positioning of the screw using the guide wire. This feature supports minimal invasive surgery.
Self-tapping head thread
The self-tapping design of the screw head simplifies insertion and countersinking of the screw head.
Different thread pitches
The threads of the head and the shaft have different thread pitches. This adapted design of the screw generates compressive forces and supports the intended inter-fragmentary compression.
Surface design MAGNEZIX® CSc
The top layer of MAGNEZIX® CSc implants is converted into a dense, porous and strongly adherent magnesium-based oxide film. This surface finish acts as a protective layer and is fully bioabsorbable. A significant delay in the degradation process is achieved to maintain the desired integrity of the implant for a longer period where necessary and thus to facilitate an extended range of indications.
These implants are available in many different combinations of different diameters and different lengths.
