Chin-ups with Bioretec´s ActivaScrew™

Bioretec Ltd.

To test our ActivaScrew™, we set up a chin-up challenge with our ActivaScrew™ LAG 4.5 mm and porcine bone. An excellent result from the screw and good results also from our athlete!

OCD fixation with ActivaPin™ and arthroscopic pin applicator

Bioretec Ltd.

In this video ActivaPin™ and arthroscopic applicator fix OCD arthroscopically. The insertion is fast and secure. Bioretec´s applicator leaves the ActivaPin™ proximal head 1-2 mm under the surface, thus no irritation in the joint. Patented grooved design and patented Self-Locking SL™ support the fixation. Self-Locking SL™ technology makes the implant diameter expand 1-2% during the healing process.

First MTP Joint Arthrodesis with ActivaScrew™ Cannulated

Bioretec Ltd. and Dr. Nikke Partio

Hallux valgus with arthritis and hallux rigidus are two of the most common conditions that require first metatarsophalangeal (MTP-1) joint arthrodesis. Arthrodesis of MTP-1 can reliably reduce pain related to hallux rigidus and improve foot function to allow a certain level of activity. Ideally the fixation method should be reproducible, lead to a high rate of fusion, and have a low incidence of complications.

In this operation surgeon shows how to use two bioabsorbable ActivaScrew™ Cannulated LAG screws for MTP-1 arthrodesis.

Hammertoe correction with ActivaPin™

Bioretec Ltd.

Hammertoe is a condition, where a simple surgery helps. Hammertoe with ActivaPin™ brings anatomical result every time, as you can bend ActivaPin™ up to 90 degrees and restore patient´s original anatomy. In addition, in the human body the ActivaPin™ expands 1-2 % in diameter, thus locks strongly into the bone.

In this video surgeon shows how easy it is to insert ActivaPin™ in hammertoe correction.

Chevron Osteotomy for Correction of Hallux Valgus with ActivaPin™

Bioretec. Ltd. and Dr. Fabio Treia

Only one ActivaPin™ is enough

Hallux valgus is a foot deformity, where the first metatarsophalangeal (MTP) joint is affected. The condition is painful and can cause significant disability. Hallux valgus correction with only one ActivaPin™ leaves the patient without shoe rubbing metal plating and unnecessary removal operations. The grooved design of ActivaPin™ surface with expanding diameter, 1-2 %, offers a new type of stabilization to the osteotomies.

In this video Dr. Treia from Rome, Italy, corrects Hallux Valgus with Chevron Osteotomy and one ActivaPin™

Distal Radius Fracture Fixation with ActivaPin™

Bioretec Ltd. and Dr. Marcell Varga

Distal radius fractures are common injuries in the pediatric population. This technique presents a fixation with only one ActivaPin™. This technique with ActivaPin™ is continually and successfully used with excellent results in the Peterfy Hospital National Trauma Center of Budapest by Dr. Marcell Varga and Dr. Tamás Kassai.

5th Metacarpal fracture fixation using ActivaPin™

Bioretec Ltd. and Dr. Tsybul

Traditional fixation is widely used in metacarpal bone fractures. However in case of metal coming outside the skin, problems such as pin infection, damage to adjacent soft tissue, need for removal and unattractive dorsal scarring. On top of that, it is difficult to start early active motion exercise.

Fixing the fracture with ActivaPin™ it is possible to prevent the soft tissue damage, dorsal scarring and removal is avoideda and early active exercises are possible.

In this video, Dr. Tsybul operates boxer´s fracture fast and effectively.
