Description As part of the versatile implant portfolio made of the innovative magnesium-based material MAGNEZIX®, MAGNEZIX® Pins define a new standard for implants in orthopedic and trauma surgery. They are metallic, but degrade in the body and convert into endogenous bone tissue. MAGNEZIX® Pins offer the ideal combination of stability, elasticity and bioabsorbability. They have mechanical stability values significantly higher than those of other available bioresorbable materials. The excellent biocompatibility has been clinically tested and scientifically proven. Moreover, magnesium inhibits infection and stimulates bone growth. No foreign material remains, making later removal of the implant unnecessary. For patients, this reduces surgical risks such as anesthesia, infection or nerve and vascular lesions. The wide use of MAGNEZIX® Pins facilitates health care providers and offers significant savings potential in the health care system while at the same time improving treatment quality. Jury statement MAGNEZIX® Pin, a bioabsorbable metal implant based on magnesium, dissolves completely in the bone. This saves patients from having a second operation, which is usually required for the removal of conventional metal implants. Unlike these conventional designs, the MAGNEZIX® Pin is converted into the body’s own bone tissue and is thus absorbed entirely by the body, leaving no residues. It therefore even helps to accelerate the healing process, and as a further advantage, magnesium also staves off infection and is well tolerated. A quantum leap in implantology.
