ActivaPin™ and ActivaNail™
Bioretec’s ActivaPin™ is ideal for fixation of fractures and osteotomies especially in foot and ankle.
When operating flake fractures, for example, in chondral areas of the knee, ActivaNail™ offers needed additional support with its small head. Self-Locking SL™ technology and grooved surface design enable pins and nails to stay in place with improved rotational stability. Just choose a suitable pin or nail and tap it quickly into place with Bioretec pin applicator.
Benefits of using ActivaPin™ or ActivaNail™:
  • Great benefit of direct transarticular fixation of radial neck or head.
  • No protruding implants at the joint surfaces.
  • Far less invasive than plate fixation.
  • All inside technique.
  • No K-wires through the skin.
  • Can be inserted fully arthroscopically.
  • ActivaPin™ and ActivaNail™ 2.0 x 20-40 mm are well suitable for this indication.

ActivaScrew™
ActivaScrew™ family offers a broad range of fully threaded and partially threaded screws for fixation of fractures and osteotomies.
Due to Auto-Compression™ technology screws can maintain compression for at least eight weeks thus reducing the risk of unstable fixation and allowing the bone to heal.
Benefits of using ActivaScrew™:
  • Ideal temporary support for healing syndesmosis.
  • No risk of screw breakage before removal due to biodegradation of the screw (no removal needed).
  • One product size for all the patients.
  • Screw can be cut in length after implantation.
  • Cutting preferably with a hot cautery loop but e.g. oscillating saw can be used as well.
  • Minimal head protrusion on the fibula.
  • Can be used with conventional metal plates.
  • ActivaScrew™ 4.5 x 70 mm covers normally all the patiens.

ActivaScrew™ Cannulated
ActivaScrew™ family offers a broad range of fully threaded and partially threaded cannulated screws for fixation of fractures and osteotomies.
Due to Auto-Compression™ technology screws can maintain compression for at least eight weeks thus reducing the risk of unstable fixation and allowing the bone to heal.
Benefits of using ActivaScrew™ Cannulated:
  • High strength and stiffness facilitate stable fixation.
  • Designed to gradually restore the original load carrying capacity of the bone.
  • Bioabsorbable. Reduces risk of long term complications. No removal operations.
  • Packaging, instrument and implant design enables aseptic surgical procedure.
  • Patented Auto-Compression™ technology brings mechanical activity.

ActivaScrew™ Interference
Bioretec’s interference screw family has a broad range of products suitable for various indications in ligament fixation in foot, ankle, knee, shoulder, elbow, and hand. ACL reconstruction is the most popular indication for 7 – 10 mm interference screws, whereas 4-6 mm are used in many other indications like for smaller ligament or tendon fixation.
Self-Locking SL™ technology and graft friendly design increase the reliability of the screws in clinical use.
Benefits of using ActivaScrew™ Interference:
  • High usability for various indications.
  • Wide selection of different sizes.
  • Easy insertion along the guide wire (K-Wire).
  • Easy position imaging during the operation.
  • Center driven torx driver for optimal insertion.
  • High strength properties offer easy insertion and safe medical use.
  • Self-Locking SL™.
  • Enables drilling through the product in need of re-operation.
  • Complete bioabsorption takes place approximately within 2 years.

CiproScrew™
world’s first antibiotic releasing bioabsorbable fixation device. CiproScrew™ opens up new possibilities to prevent implant-related infections. CiproScrew™ releases an antimicrobial agent around itself inhibiting bacteria to colonize the surface of the screw, meanwhile being mechanically strong enough for fixation.
CiproScrew™ is indicated for fixation of bone fractures, osteotomies, arthrodeses, bone grafts and osteochondral fractures in the presence of appropriate immobilization when infection by ciprofloxacin sensitive organism is a potential risk.
Risk group patients are smokers, alcoholics, immunocompromised patients such as aged people and diabetics, open fractures. In these cases treatment generally is extremely challenging, long lasting and very expensive.
