Resorbable composite fixation
Resorbable Composite Fixation Summary We have developed a novel production process which enables the preparation of resorbable screws and bolts. These can be used in conjunction with fully degradable composite implants in the treatment of damaged or defective bone tissue. Thus resulting in a fully resorbable, degradable system. Key Benefits The...
