Biotextile strengthens screw fixation in compromised bone

This article was originally published in Start Up

Executive Summary

One of the biggest challenges with orthopedic screws is inadequate fixation in poor quality bone; the revision rate of requiring a second surgery for loss of screw engagement is 15%. Woven Orthopedic Technologies LLC hopes to significantly reduce that rate with its braided polymer that is placed into a screw hole to provide good fixation within the entire bone.
