STERN FIX™ is an adaptative sternal closure device made of a polymeric material. (carbon fiber reinforced PEEK).
The polymeric property and the smart design of the device, makes STERN FIX bring a dynamic continuous compression on the sternum and reduce the risk of sternal bone cut-through.
STERN FIX™ aims to complement and progressively upgrade the traditional sternal wire closure technique, while offering an atraumatic easy to use solution for enhanced sternum stability.THE SURGICAL NEED
Variable physiologic loads act on the healing sternum after a sternotomy surgical procedure. When using traditional wires for sternal closure, the high loads may produce bone cutting and fixation lost.
STERN FIX is a sternal stabilization system made of PEEK polymer that provides continuous compression and adaptability to the chest movements. Its design and material helps absorb these loads and reduce the risk of bone cut-through.
STERN FIX is easy to use and needle-free providing a quick and reliable solution for sternal closure.
