Our Products

OSSEOINTEGRATION

Have you ever had a lower limb amputation and you’re looking for an alternative to your traditional socket prosthesis?

We offer the OGAP-OPL implant, a revolutionary system designed in Australia by Professor Munjed Almuderis. It combines robotic technology with orthopaedic surgery to connect the femur with a prosthetic limb.

 

EXOGEN

Is your fracture taking longer than normal to consolidate? Are you a sportsman/woman with a fresh fracture and you need to start practicing as soon as possible?
EXOGEN is a safe and scientifically tested device that activates and accelerates the biological process of bone healing by means of Low Intensity Pulsed Ultrasound (LIPUS).

Risk Factors for Nonunion in Patients with Intracapsular Femoral Neck Fractures Treated with Three Cannulated Screws Placed in Either a Triangle or an Inverted Triangle Configuration https://sdtrauma.com/en/

Femoral neck fractures are associates with a high nonunion rate. In this study we evaluate the risk factors that influence progression to nonunion in patients treated with parallel cannulated screws placed in triangle (one proximal + two distal) or inverted triangle (two proximal + one distal) position.

The Effects of Low-Intensity Pulsed Ultrasound Upon Diabetic Fracture Healing https://sdtrauma.com/en/

This study compares the consolidation process of femur diafisal fractures of a group of healthy rats (n=15), a group of rats with Diabetes Mellitus (n=15) and a group of rates with Diabetes Mellitus treated with LIPUS low intensity pulsed ultrasound (n=15).

The parameters used where: PCR and ELISA for the measurements of growth factors, histomorphometry for cartilage formation and inmunohistopathology for neovascularization of the fracture site.
