- Professor Gowreeson Thevendran, Raffles Hospital/Singapore: “In 5 years that I work with these implants, I have not seen any adverse effects in patients. They are as good as titanium, but have many advantages.”
At the occasion of the 67th CONTINUING ORTHOPAEDIC EDUCATION (COE) CONGRESS OF THE INDONESIAN ORTHOPAEDIC ASSOCIATION that took place from 24 April 2019 to 27 April 2019 at Solo City (Surakarta) / Java, internationally renowned scientist and orthopaedic surgeon Professor Gowreeson Thevendran from Singapore, based on his excellent experience over several years with Syntellix’ MAGNEZIX® bioabsorbable implants, has described Magnesium as the “New Gold Standard" for orthopaedic and trauma surgery. In his widely recognized trendsetting presentation in front of more than 100 experts from the entire region, Professor Thevendran highlighted that in his clear experience, these highly innovative Magnesium based implants have no disadvantages, but many advantages compared with conventional implants made from Titanium. These numerous advantages by far exceed the key differentiator of bioabsorbability, which renders obsolete a second surgery for implant removal in case of use of Magnesium based implants, thus eliminating the corresponding infection, anaesthesia, and refracture risks.
Professor Thevendran, who has succesfully used Syntellix’ MAGNEZIX® implants over several years in various leading Singaporean hospitals (Tan Tock Seng, Mount Elizabeth Novena, and Raffles Hospital), explained to the expert audience: “In 5 years that I work with these implants, I have not seen any adverse effects in patients. They are as good as titanium, but have many advantages.” In the following discussion with congress participants, Professor Thevendran concluded: “I genuinely believe that Magnesium will be the Gold Standard.”
Syntellix is an internationally operating medical technology company with headquarters in Hannover, Germany, that is undergoing dynamic organic growth. The company specialises in the research and development and marketing and sales of highly innovative transformable metallic implants. Products made from the company’s patented MAGNEZIX® are unique. In a widely acclaimed publication, they were evaluated as being superior clinically to titanium implants commonly used. MAGNEZIX® implants degrade and are bioabsorbed in the body and are transformed into the body's own bone tissue, and in doing so offer an ideal combination of stability, elasticity and bioabsorbability.
Syntellix is the world's market and technology leader in the field of bioabsorbable metallic orthopaedic implants and has already been honoured with numerous important awards and prizes. In Germany, these include the Innovation Award of the German Economy 2012/13, the Future Award 2016 of the German Healthcare Economy, the German Medical Award 2017, the STEP Award 2017 and the Innovator of the Year 2017 award; internationally, the implants were a winner in the Product of the Year category of the Sustainability Award 2018 program.
