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

+

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.
