NEW STANDARDS FOR ORTHOPEDIC SURGERY
superior primary stability due to immediate bonding with the bone, less invasive implant fixation, and reduced surgical time.
BoneWelding® technology sets a new and superior standard for orthopedic implants: superior primary stability due to immediate bonding with the bone, less invasive implant fixation, and reduced surgical time. The BoneWelding® process employs gentle ultrasonic energy to induce controlled melting of pre-defined, polymeric implant components.
Gentle pressure on the handpiece, together with ultrasonic vibration through the sonotrode, push the thermoplastic implant into the pre-drilled hole in the bone.
This sets up shearing forces at the contact surfaces between the bone and polymer, causing small amounts of polymer to liquefy.
The liquid polymer flows into the trabecular tissue structure, immediately solidifies and provides a mechanically stable bond to the bone after only a few seconds.
Only minimal inflammatory reaction during the degradation process without fibrous tissue formation at the bone-polymer interface.

RESORB PIN AND PLATE SYSTEM
The VetWelding Resorb pins and plates are made of 100% biocompatible and fully bioresorbable Poly-D,L-lactic Acid (PDLLA). The in vivo degradation of the pins and plates is based on the natural physiological process of hydrolysis, which results in a complete metabolization of the polymer into H2O and CO2.
