Kennett Square, PA (PRWEB) September 09, 2011
Medartis, Inc., a subsidiary of Medartis AG, a pioneer in variable angle locking technology for upper extremity orthopaedic fracture fixation, will introduce a new generation of self-drilling, cannulated compression screws at the American Society for Surgery of the Hand (ASSH) Annual Meeting in Las Vegas. Adriane Lang, Product Manager for the Basel, Switzerland based company, conducted the Medartis employee training workshop for the new system. Ms. Lang, along with the Medartis staff and will be on site at Booth #107 to demonstrate and discuss the SpeedTip CCS (cannulated compression screw), as well as the expanded line of Medartis products.
Prior to the ASSH, the SpeedTip CCS had been made available in limited release and received positive reviews from surgeons. The unique SpeedTip polygonal tip is designed to drill and form the bone on insertion, rather than cutting it with a flute as is done with conventional screws. Cutting flutes of conventional screws can quickly clog with bone debris increasing insertion torque. The unique Medartis design greatly reduces insertion torque, improving the surgeons’ tactile feedback. The extended thread area also creates secure compression and excellent purchase in cancellous bone.
Medartis Inc, is a subsidiary of Medartis AG headquartered in Basel, Switzerland, a leading manufacturer of medical devices for cranio-maxillofacial surgery, hand and plastic surgery, as well as small bone orthopaedic trauma surgery. Medartis is committed to providing surgeons and operating room personnel with innovative titanium implants, elegant instruments, and services that represent advances in bone fixation and thus patients’ quality of life.
