EUROSCREW® is an absorbable interference screw used for knee anterior cruciate ligament repair.
This specifically designed screw is suitable for fixation of both bone-tendon-bone grafts and soft tissue grafts.
EUROSCREW® and EUROSCREW® TCP 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.
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® and EUROSCREW® TCP are radiotransparent.
