The essential connecting elements between the implant and the bone are the SonicPins Rx. They are packaged in cartridges, and are easily loaded on the sonotrode tip with a friction fit.
The unique SonicWeld Rx® method does not rely only on torque and dense cortical bone as with threaded screw technology. Excellent stabilty is achieved with 4-5mm length SonicPins in all types of bone, and the shaft and head are not subject to breakage and stripping from torque during insertion and tightening.
SonicWeld Rx® use in pediatric craniotomy and cranioplasty procedures is well documented - it is an excellent solution in terms of effectiveness and time savings.
The Resorb-x® plates, mesh, foils, and membranes come in a wide variety of patterns.
The profile ranges from 0.1 to 1.0mm with hole patterns in solid 'foil', membrane, and mesh patterns. The shapes come in lengths well suited for craniosynostosis cranioplasty procedures, standard cranial closure, and stabilizing bone fragments and bone substitutes.
The Resorb-x® plates, mesh, foils, and membranes made of resorbable PDLLA are transparent and maintain 80% of their strength to 10 weeks.
Heated up to approx. 65 - 70 °C via a hot water bath, they can be cut with scissors and transformed into a three-dimensional shape that offers superior stability compared to standard two dimensional plates. Within a few moments, the material begins to harden again. Portions that require further contouring are reheated, and with a small learning curve, the possibilities are endless.
