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. 

Pin design 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 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.

The MAGNEZIX® Pin 1.5 can be used as a bone pin when treating children, young people and adults for the adaption-stable fixation of bones, bone fragments or osteochondral fragments in areas exposed to minor stress: intra-articular and extra-articular fractures, arthrodeses and osteotomies of small bones and joints, small bony torn ligaments and tendons, Osteochondrosis dessicans.  n und Gelenke, kleine knöcherne Band- und Sehnenausrisse, Osteochondrosis dissecans.

MAGNEZIX® Pin 2.0

+

The MAGNEZIX® Pin 2.0 is a bioabsorbable bone pin and thus suitable for re-establishing bone continuity of slightly stressed, form-stable fragments after fractures, treatment of bony tears, re-fixation of bone fragments and osteochondral fragments. Thanks to its dimensions, it is particularly suitable for: carpals, metacarpals, tarsals and metatarsals Processus styloideus radii and ulnae, Capitulum humeri and Caput radii.   Tarsalien und Metatarsalien Processus styloideus radii et ulnae, Capitulum humeri und Caput radii.

The indications for MAGNEZIX® pins are reconstructive methods after fractures and malpositions of the human skeleton. The objective is anatomical retention via operative splinting of rejoined bone sections after previous repositioning, all the way to bony healing. The MAGNEZIX® Pin 2.7 can be used especially  here for e.g. Pipkin fractures, metaphyseal radius and ulnae fractures, and Hallux valgus corrections.
