MAGNEZIX® CBS

Keyvisual 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. 

 

MAGNEZIX® CBS features

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 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.

The MAGNEZIX® CBS 2.0 can be used as a bone screw (lag screw, position screw) for the fixation of small bones and bone fragments thanks to its small dimensions, for instance, for intra-articular and extra-articular fractures, arthrodeses, osteotomies, and pseudoarthroses, as well as for bony torn ligaments and tendons, and osteochondral fractures and dissecates.

The indications for the versatile MAGNEZIX® CBS 2.7 are reconstructive procedures on children, young people and adults after fractures and/or malpositions of the human skeleton: fixation of small bone fractures (intra- and extra-articular), correcting malpositions, correcting faulty joint development, or joint stiffening, as well as treatment of osteochondral fractures and dissecates.

The MAGNEZIX® CBS with 3.5 mm diameter can be used in children, young people and adults as a temporary load-bearing device for bone fixation. Areas of application are: fractures (intra-articular and extra-articular), arthrodeses, osteotomies and pseudoarthroses, bony torn ligaments and tendons - especially carpal, metacarpal, tarsal and metatarsal bones, epicondylus humeri, metaphyseal fractures of small and medium-sized bones and bone fragments.
