RemeOs™ bioresorbable metal implants
RemeOs™ implants are made of unique patented* bioresorbable metal alloy constructed from Magnesium, Calcium and Zinc, elements which are all essential in new bone formation in human body. The material does not contain any foreign elements to human body like Yttrium, Gadolinium, Neodymium nor any other rare-earth elements (REE).
Clinical trials have shown excellent results proving the safety and functionality of the material. Its high mechanical properties and degradation characteristics are well suitable for high load bearing clinical applications as well as in pediatrics. This alloy has been developed over the course of eight years and marks an important milestone in materials research. Now for first time surgeons have the possibility to use safe bioresorbable materials in high load-bearing indications. Strength of RemeOs™ implants is close to traditional (stainless steel, titanium) metal implants. With the new RemeOs™ implants surgeon can achieve similar fixation as with traditional metal implants. Also operation technique principles with RemeOs™ implants are same as with traditional metal implants.
In many cases, traditional metal implants have to be removed due to long term adverse effects. Removal surgery increases patient’s discomfort and risk of complications. RemeOs™ implants eliminate the need for implant removal. Stress-shielding associated with traditional metal implants may result in the bone atrophy and the osteolysis. RemeOs™ resorbable metal implants resorb to bone, assisting in the healing process. Due to the implant resorption, the risks of any implant-related long-term complications will be eliminated.
