Project Description

EUROSCREW® NG & TCP NG

Bioabsorbable Screw for Ligamentoplasty Surgeries

EUROSCREW® NG & TCP NG is a bioabsorbable cannulated screw specially designed for ligamentoplasty surgical techniques like anterior/posterior cruciate ligament reconstructions, reinsertion of the long-head of the biceps tendon or ankle ligaments.

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

EUROSCREW® NG offers a complete range of screws and tools that ensure a secure fixation of the transplants.

The interference screws EUROSCREW® NG are available in 9 references, including 6 diameters and 4 lengths suitable for current ligamentoplasty techniques.

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.

These screws EUROSCREW® NG & TCP NG  are mechanically stable for respectively 8-10 months and 6 months post-operative; this allows a good rehabilitation. Then they are slowly hydrolyzed by water from surrounding tissues and fully replaced by neo-bone after 24 months.

ADVANTAGES

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