Bioabsorbable magnesium alloy
The application of MAGNEZIX® Pins makes later removal completely superfluous, as well as promoting the bone healing process. MAGNEZIX® is bioabsorbable, biocompatible and non-toxic in a biological environment (according to EN ISO 1993).
The flat-shaped head of the MAGNEZIX® Pins enables stable repositioning of a bone fragment. This therefore avoids a prominent overhang of the implant and thus possible damage to the neighbouring structures, as well as enabling complete countersinking of the pin head. In addition, a depression in the pin head improves positioning of the impactor and prevents the impactor from slipping off the pin head when being hammered in.
Axial stabilising shaft design
The symmetrically arranged ribs of the pin shaft give rise to compression in the free bone fragment when the implant is hammered in. In addition, the ribs improve the axial positioning accuracy of the implant, and thus ensure repositioning during the healing process.
Design of the pin tip
The design of the pin tip of the MAGNEZIX® Pins displaces spongy bone and thus consolidates the position of the implant. The pin tip has no axial rib structure and thus makes positioning of the MAGNEZIX® Pin easier.
