MAGNEZIX® StarFuse®

TRANSFORMABLE, OSTEOCONDUCTIVE, INFECTION-INHIBITING

/// Description

+

The MAGNEZIX® StarFuse® is a bioabsorbable intramedullary arthrodesis implant that is intended for adaptation-capable or exercise-capable fixation of small bone reconstruction strictly limited to interphalangeal fusion of the lesser toes (PIP arthrodeses). It combines the globally unique MAGNEZIX® material technology with a similarly innovative new geometrical approach towards foot surgery.

MAGNEZIX® CBS features

Features

/// Design features

+

Unique, transformable magnesium alloy

MAGNEZIX® does not leave any foreign material behind in the body, and moreover it supports the osseous healing process. MAGNEZIX® is biocompatible and bioabsorbable.


Patented wing design

Two small-sized wings act as a mechanical stop during insertion and following reduction of the more distal phalanx. This innovative design feature ensures stable axial implant positioning.


Star-shaped profile

Deep cutting longitudinal flutes guarantee proper rotational stability for optimal fixation.


Blunt ends

The blunt end design ensures secure implant position via reducing the risk of axial implant displacement.


Conical design

The conical shape of the proximal and distal end allows fast and easy insertion. This design aspect further achieves proper intra-medullar press-fit anchoring.


Various sizes

These implants are available in two angles, 0° and 10°, each with three different distal lengths.
