Project Description

EUROSCREW® NG & TCP NG

Bioabsorbable interference screw For Ligamentoplasty Surgery

EUROSCREW® NG are bioabsorbable cannulated screws specially designed for ligamentoplasty surgical procedures.
EUROSCREW® NG & TCP NG offer a complete range of screws and tools to ensure a secure fixation of the transplants.

The screws are suitable for current ligamentoplasty techniques (bone-tendon-bone or soft tissues grafts in femoral or tibial tunnels).

As the range EUROSCREW®, EUROSCREW® NG range is available in 2 materials : 100% PLA and 70% PLA + 30% β-TCP

EUROSCREW® TCP NG is radiopaque.

The presence of TCP into the PLA matrix keeps a neutral pH of the material by buffer effect during the degradation time and reduces the risk of inflammation. β-TCP is also an osteoconductive material which promotes bone ingrowth.

EUROSCREW® NG and EUROSCREW® TCP NG are mechanically stable for 8-10 months. Bioabsorption kinetic is tailored to start at the end of natural bone healing. Complete absorption of the screw is observed within a maximum of 4 years.

ADVANTAGES

  • Resorbable
  • High torsion strength
  • Self-tapping
  • Double Thread – Fast screwing
  • Flat Head
  • Controlled degradation
