The implants of tomorrow

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.

Features

/// DESIGN FEATURES

+


Patented wing design

Two small wings act as a mechanical stop during implant insertion and final reduction. This ensures a stable axial implant position.


Star-shaped profile

Deep longitudinal grooves guarantee a high degree of rotational stability and thus ensure optimum implant fixation.


Rounded ends

The rounded design of the ends ensures a secure axial implant position.


Conical design

The conical shape of the proximal and distal ends allows quick and easy insertion and good intramedullary pressfit fixation.


Various sizes

The implants are available in two angles (0° and 10°), each with three different distal lengths.
