MAGNEZIX® CS

Keyvisual foot

The implant of the future

/// Description

+

MAGNEZIX® CS implants are metallically stable, and similar to systems made of steel or titanium, and are several times stronger than conventional polymer implants. However, unlike metal screws and wires, they do not need to be removed - because they are resorbed, promote healing, and are completely replaced by the body's own tissue. These properties bring very clear advantages for doctors and patients. 

CS design features

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 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.

MAGNEZIX® Pins

Keyvisual MAGNEZIX® Pins

Setting new standards

/// DESCRIPTION

+

MAGNEZIX® Pins have levels of mechanical stability which far exceed the values of previous bioabsorbable materials (5 x higher compared to PLA/PGA implants). This outstanding stability is a new benchmark for numerous applications in trauma and sports surgery.

Features

/// Design features

+

Unique, transformable 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.


Head design

The flat designed head of the MAGNEZIX® Pin enables stable reduction of the bone fragment. Prominent protrusion of the implant involving possible damage to proximal structures can thus be avoided, and the pin head can be completely countersunk.

In addition, a recess in the pin head improves positioning of the impactor, and the impactor is prevented from slipping off the pin head during impaction.


Axial stabilising shaft design

The symmetric collars on the pin shank result in compression of the free bone fragment during impaction of the implant. In addition, the collars increase the axial positioning precision of the implant and thus ensure reduction during the healing process.


Design of the pin tip

The tip design of the MAGNEZIX® Pin displaces cancellous bone and thus compresses the implant bed. The pin tip without any collars facilitates positioning of the MAGNEZIX® Pin in the pre-drilled implant bed.


Various sizes

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

MAGNEZIX® CBS

Superior versatility

/// Description

+

MAGNEZIX® CBS implants are metallically stable, and similar to systems made of steel or titanium, they are remarkably stronger than conventional polymer implants. However, unlike other metal screws, they do not need to be removed - because they are transformed, promote healing, and are completely replaced by the body's own tissue. These properties bring very clear advantages for doctors and patients.

Unique, transformable 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.


Head design

The head of the MAGNEZIX® CBS, with a typical cortical screw design, allows for stable repositioning of the bone fragment, with exquisite compression characteristics.


Patented safety drive design

The special design of the TORX-based drive protects the implant in the shaft and head area from failure. If the torsional load is too high during the insertion process, a targeted deformation of the screw head drive takes place. As a result, subsequent steps can be continued using a hexagonal screwdriver blade.


Thread design

The thread design, which is typical for cortical screws, produces a strong fixation in cortical bone. A dimension-dependent thread pitch supports the controlled compression of bone fragments.


Screw tip

The additionally existing chip flutes improve the thread quality and ease the screwing-in. However, a precutting of the thread in cortical bone is required.


Various sizes

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

MAGNEZIX® StarFuse®

Key visual MAGNEZIX® StarFuse®

Specially designed

/// Description

+


MAGNEZIX® StarFuse® are the first special implants for a strictly defined range of applications made from MAGNEZIX®. They are intended for the fusion of the toe joints (PIP arthrodeses) for surgical correction of so-called hammer or claw toes, which frequently occur in connection with a hallux valgus (bunion), affecting more than 10 million people in Germany.


The implant is metallic, but is degraded and transformed into bone tissue by the body; in addition, it has mechanical properties very similar to those of bone, such as high stability and elasticity. On top, magnesium osteoconductively stimulates bone growth, has an anti-infection effect and is particularly well tolerated.

 

MAGNEZIX® StarFuse® Design featurs

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.
