Advantages and product features
Metal removal is a disadvantage of conventional fixation systems with all the resulting complication risks for the patient in the second intervention. Surgery with the Shark Screw® eliminates this procedure, resulting in significant relief of our healthcare system.
The Shark Screw® graft offers a promising solution for problem indications such as pseudarthrosis, poorly healing fractures, cartilage bone fixation (osteochondritis dissecans) and treatment of rheumatic or diabetic patients.
Together with the Graz University of Technology, Shark Screws® of different thicknesses have been developed according to the requirements and area of application to ensure maximum stability and safety for the doctor and patient.
Our organism recognizes the species’ own bone matrix and integrates the Shark Screw® Graft completely through the natural, physiological bone metabolism, so that the graft is no longer visible in the X-ray after 1 -2 years, depending on the blood circulation of the respective region. Rejections or foreign body reactions are not known.
Shark Screw® is currently being applied in over 40 indications for hand, foot, knee, and pediatric surgery. This variety of indications makes it easier for the doctors and their teams to work because only one set of instruments is necessary.
Subjective findings of experienced Shark Screw® surgeons show low pain in patients in the postoperative course, which is due to the shortening of the screw as well as the extremely high compatibility of the allogeneic material. Also, complications associated with metal implants are avoided.
