Pediatric case series with bioabsorbable screws continues
Professor Pierre Lascombes pediatric case series continues with a twelve-year-old girl's right ankle trauma treatment with bioabsorbable ActivaScrew™. The implant creates additional fracture line compression with the patented Auto-Compression™ technology. In addition, postoperative implant removal was avoided and sports activities were allowed after three months. At six months follow-up, the ankle range of motion was equivalent to the opposite left side, and X-rays showed perfect bone union and normal distal tibia and fibula growth.
