CHARLOTTE, N.C. (PRWEB) February 27, 2018
Diamond Orthopedic, a medical device company that is pioneering the use of an innovative faceted threadform in orthopedics, today announced that their faceted technology was successfully used in an intercalary tibial allograft.
The surgeon who utilized Diamond’s faceted bone screw noted that, “stable, durable fixation was paramount to this type of reconstruction. I chose the Diamond threadform for its superior fixation and pullout strength, and for what I like to call its ‘bone friendly’ design. The faceted threadform not only made insertion of the screws easier, but also gave me confidence that the innovative biomechanical features of this technology will help lead to a successful patient outcome.”
Diamond’s patented faceted design allows surgeons to insert faceted screws into bone with less insertional torque and lower compressive stress, which can be particularly important when working with osteopenic bone. The faceted thread design enables an improved bone-screw interface versus traditional helical threadforms.
Roy Bivens, CEO, stated, “Faceted bone screws offer unparalleled fixation that is especially valuable in compromised bone. Diamond Orthopedic was proud to support a case of this type. Better patient outcomes are our ultimate goal. This technology has the potential to change numerous paradigms within orthopedics including with plate and screw applications and with uni-cortical fixation possibilities.”
