The sysorb® is used for the tibial and femoral fixation (primary anchorage) of the autologous tendon grafts (or allograft) in the reconstruction of the cruciate ligament.
sysorb® has been widely used in more than 60,000 surgeries and documented in more than 40 publications. It has been demonstrated to be safe, efficient and easy to handle.
The patented turbine-like design of the bioresorbable interference screws, and of its mating screwdriver, allow easy and precise introduction and fixation of the implant. The blunt, atraumatic thread prevents laceration to the graft.
The sysorb® screw is made of the amorphous polymer poly-DL-lactide. It degrades fully within approximately one and a half years, leaving no crystalline remnants, unlike crystalline or semi-crystalline polymers.
The degradation kinetics of this polymer assures a strong fixation during the whole healing process.
sysorb’s main advantages are:
