Tendon fixation device system
The Citrelock tendon fixation device system is a controlled, resorbable biotenodesis screw used for tendon fixation in foot and ankle procedures.
Made of Citregen whose main component is the citrate molecule, a natural metabolite.
Designed to protect and preserve the tendon.
Provides a controlled and homogeneous resorption which prevents bulk degradation and chronic inflammation.1
Provides strong pull-out strength in comparison to thermoplastic polymers or composites.2
Citrate, calcium, and phosphate are released to the surrounding tissue.
Polymer resorption continues as the bioceramic becomes metabolized.
The biomimetic implant is replaced by the normal tissue anatomy.
