The innovative cranial fixation system
The innovative system for skull closure following a craniotomy.
With the L-Fixation System, the complete closure of the skull does not require any instruments thus -avoiding the risk of subsequent dura injury while simplifying the procedure.
Skin irritations and sharp edges are eliminated, by having a predetermined breaking point engineered within the thread. Ana- tomical and cosmetic considerations were key-factors in designing the system. The development of this innovation was the result of close collaboration with neurosurgeons.
The L-Fixation System is made of unalloyed titanium acc. ISO 5832-2 and of titanium alloy (threaded rod and sleeve only) acc. ISO 5832-3.
Both implant materials meet the highest quality requirements. They can be used in MR scanners up to 3 Tesla, are non-ferro- magnetic and cause only minimal artifact during MR/CT.
For quick determination of the size of skull closer required.
For simple removal of the upper plate in revision-procedures.
Specially designed storage and sterilization tray for the L-Fixation removing forceps and gauging tool.
Each L-Fixation is delivered in sterile condition and is individually blister-packed. The secondary packaging contains 5 clamps and allows for easy removal.
