Inion biodegradable screws and plates:

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

Inion's OTPS screws and CPS Baby compact plating system are biodegradable implants for orthopaedic and cranio-maxillofacial applications, respectively. The OTPS 2.5mm, 2.8mm and 3.1mm screws are designed to maintain the alignment and fixation of bone fractures, osteotomies, arthrodeses or bone grafts in the presence of additional immobilisation devices. They can be used to treat a wide range of fractures, particularly those requiring stronger support such as in the foot and leg; the OTPS range had previously been cleared only for use in the hand. In its paediatric compact plating system product range, CPS Baby, the Tampere, Finland-based firm has gained clearance for 40-hole and 64-hole biodegradable plates for use in the fixation of craniofacial fractures and osteotomies in children.
