Magnezix is now being used in the NHS & UK Private sectors. It’s a genuine world first in orthopaedic surgery….. a complete range of instrumentation & bio-absorbable magnesium alloy compression screws for orthopaedic surgical procedures.
Magnezixis a magnesium based metal alloy (Zinc, Calcium, Magnesium) and despite having metallic properties, it completelydegrades within the body’s own bone tissue. Its bio-mechanical properties are very similar to those of human bone. It also exhibits osteoconductive properties, which are infection resistant and support bone regeneration.
Granted full CE marking and registration of Medical Devices for medical applications (Adults & Children) within Europe.
Clinical trials completed in 2013. 55,000 implants sold worldwide. Over 8,000 procedures in 35 countries (growing).www.syntellix.com
First heal, then resorb – the Magnezix principle.
Stability: significantly greater stability compared to conventional Resorbable polymer implants
Osteoconductive:Magnezix implants stimulate bone growth. There is a complete homogeneous conversion of the implant to the patient’s own body tissue. As the implant gradually degrades, the newly formed bone takes up the load and is fully absorbed after 12 -18 months. Histological investigations show bone formation at the surface of the implant as well as bone growth incorporated into the already re-absorbed zones of the implant.
Lower risk of infection: When magnesium degrades, an alkaline, anti-bacterial environment is create.
Does not lead to so-called ‘stress shielding’ (degradation of bone tissue) due to the bone-like biomechanical properties.
Magnezix implants are radiologically visible, MRI-proof and do not generate artefacts. Free of nickel, cobalt, chrome and aluminium.
Surgical technique is simple, requires pre-drilling and countersinking.
No metal removal necessary: During the course of healing, the Magnezix implant gradually degrades while the regenerating bone gradually gains in load-bearing capacity.
The best implant for your difficult procedures
The new generation of orthopaedic implants: metallic, bioabsorbable andtransforming into bone. Magnezix is the world’s first and only approved metallic implant material implant material which degrades in the human body – it sets a new standard for reconstructive surgery… bridging the gap between steel and titanium with resorbable implants.
Suitable for numerous orthopaedic indications – including trauma, sports injuries, complex fixations, extremity surgery
No remaining foreign material
Excellent for CT diagnosis and MRI
No radiological artefacts: helps to considerably improve the analysis of images
Familiar surgical application technique
Time and cost saving
Cannulated compression screws available in sizes: 2.0, 2.7, 3.2 & 4.8mm
