MAGNEZIX® in orthopaedics
The MAGNEZIX® compression screws (CS) and pins offer a high quality implant portfolio for a wide range of indications when treating the malpositioning of small to medium-sized bones and joints. Naturally, in the very highest quality Made in Germany. The unique benefits of the MAGNEZIX® material offer unmatched advantages for long-term patient care and optimal healing results.
Metallically stable and transformable
MAGNEZIX® implants are metallically stable - similar to conventional systems made of steel or titanium. This means that they are many times stronger than conventional polymer implants, and unlike normal metal screws or bone-wires, do not have to be removed again - because they are resorbed and replaced by stable endogenous tissue - that is why we call our implants transformable.
Their biomechanical stability ensures that the repositioning can be stably fixed in place. MAGNEZIX® implants are gradually resorbed and transformed within the body so that the regenerating bone can bear increasing loads as its load-bearing capacity returns - and leave no foreign material behind at the end of the day.
Hallux valgus correction: MAGNEZIX® CS and titanium in a comparison
The X-ray photographs show a Hallux valgus on the left foot treated with MAGNEZIX® CS during the course of 1 year post-op. The patient underwent the same operation some years previously on the right foot, where a titanium screw is used, and this can be used to compare the results.
