Safe and reliable implants also in demanding operations
Salter osteotomy is a good option for developmental dysplasia of the hip (DDH) and Legg-Calvé-Perthes disease (LCPD) with other hip related indications which affect childs hip development. ActivaScrew™ Cannulated tackles the disadvantages of traditional methods with stabilty, safety and bioabsorbtion.
Salter osteotomy with ActivaScrew™ Cannulated
The use of ActivaScrew™ Cannulated in Salter osteotomies has been studied with excellent results with stability and no implant related reactions, which is typical to our implants. The use of ActivaScrew™ Cannulated gives the surgeon a many possible screw insertion angles as the need for worrying the removal is not present. With the strength and compression of ActivaScrew™ Cannulated, surgeon can rely on the fixation.
Why this technique?
Surgeon can use the optimal angle for the screws to get the best end-result.
Child can grow without interruptions, implants sticking from the bone or needless removals, as implants are bioabsorbable and safe also for pediatric use.
Patented Auto-Compression™ gives needed compression even with fully threaded ActivaScrew™ Cannulated.
