Biocompatible Interference Resorbable Screw

    Osteotwin™ Interference Resorbable Screw was designed to fulfill two core aims: provide appropriate mechanical properties necessary for ligament reconstruction whilst ensuring a regulated resorption and osteointegration to form architectural bone through hydrolysis.

    Canulated Interference Resorbable Screw Design

    The thread is specific to each screw diameter so as to systematically provide the maximum amount of contact between implant and bone.

    Interference

    Polylactic Interference Resorbable Screw Range

    Made of PLDLLA, Osteotwin™ Polylactic Interference Resorbable Screw provides great mechanical resistance, due to Poly(L-Lactide).

    Composite Interference Resorbable Screw Range

    75% PLDLLA & 25% MBCP: the convenient ratio between the necessary mechanical resistance for the indication and the faculty to generate bone growth.

    Indications

    • Knee Cruciate ligament reconstruction: attachment of soft tissue grafts or bone-tendon-bone grafts to the tibia and/or femur
