Titanium Sternal Fixation System
The Titanium Sternal Fixation System provides stable internal fixation of the sternum for primary or secondary closure and repair, and is particularly useful following debridement of the sternum, or when sternal bone quality is insufficient.
Features & Benefits
Titanium straight locking plates for sternal and rib-to-rib fixation
Titanium star-shaped and H-shaped locking plates for fixation of the manubrium
Release pin on all plates for emergent re-entry*
3.0 mm titanium locking screws lock to the plate, increasing reliability of fixation
Indications for Use
Primary or secondary closure/repair of the sternum following sternotomy or fracture of the sternum to stabilize the sternum and promote fusion.
The DePuy Synthes Titanium Sternal Fixation System provides stable internal fixation of the sternum following a sternotomy or fracture of the sternum.
Broad variety of sternal plates
Different titanium plates according to the anatomical structures and patient's need are available:
-Straight locking plates for a stable sternal rib-to-rib fixation
-Sternal body plates for minimal dissection
-Star-shaped and H-shaped locking plates for fixation of the manubrium
-Titanium sternal locking straight plate without pin for transverse fractures’
Self-tapping and self-drilling locking screws
Both self-tapping and self-drilling locking screws are available to accommodate surgeon preference.
Secure and stable locking
The plate functions like an external fixator, applied internally.
The screwhead of the sternal locking screws locks securely into the threaded plate hole to provide stable fixation .
