MAGNEZIX® CS/CSc

Keyvisual foot

METALLIC, BIODEGRADABLE AND TRANSFORMABLE

/// Description

+

The MAGNEZIX® CS/CSc is a bioabsorbable compression screw that is used to restore the bone continuity after fractures and osteotomies (osteosynthesis) as well as for treatment of arthrodeses and pseudarthroses. Specifically, the MAGNEZIX® CS/CSc is intended to achieve anatomical retention of bone sections via surgery until the bone has healed. It goes beyond temporary stabilization by serving real healing towards the end of a fully restored intact bone structure.

Features

/// Design features

+

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.


Various sizes

These implants are available in many different combinations of different diameters and different lengths.
