Bioresorbable
Interference Screw

The clinically proven sysorb interference screw enables secure juxtaarticular fixation of the graft regardless of the selected technique of cruciate ligament surgery.

Screw Sizes

B16-402: diam. 8 mm, Length 23 mm
B16-403: diam. 9 mm, Length 30 mm

Benefits

Screw design

The sysorb screw has been developed considering the specific properties of the material used and the surrounding bone tissue.

  • During insertion of the screw into the bone tunnel, the turbine-like drive ensures ideal force transmission over the entire length of the screw and optimal engagement.
  • The ideal force transmission avoids screw breakages.
  • The screw design allows for screw insertion without additional drilling or tapping.
  • The blunt, atraumatic thread prevents injury to the graft.
  • Simple and intuitive handling

Material

The sysorb screw is made of amorphous polymer Poly(D,L)-Lactide:

  • Amorphous polymer Poly(D,L)-Lactide is resorbed better than a crystalline polymer.
  • The Poly(D,L)-Lactide is decomposed to the body’s own composites by hydrolysis and also by phagocytosis.
  • sysorb material shows excellent tissue biocompatibility.
  • The sysorb screw degrades within one and a half years.

Additional Benefits

  • Clinically documented in >40 literature publications.
  • Implant-related complication rate below 0.03%.
  • Only three sizes: less article numbers for the hospital. Easier to manage.
