Osteosynthesis in Animals
Osteosynthesis in Veterinary Medicine
To successfully treat a fracture and let it heal, the concerned bone fragments need to be aligned and secured correctly. For this reason, many veterinary professionals make use of surgical fracture treatment. In osteosynthesis, bone fragments are connected and secured with help of metal implants.
In addition to implants like screws, plates and wires, the medical professional needs the suitable instruments, such as K-wire benders, orthopaedic wire forceps, drill guides, cortical taps, bone holding forceps and many more. In this category, you can buy high-quality osteosynthesis equipment in cleverly assembled sets.
All in One: the Osteosynthesis System
If you are looking to quickly equip your surgery with the most commonly used materials for fracture treatment, we recommend the EickLoxx Small Osteosynthesis System. The modular and robust set not only contains every instrument, but also includes an assortment of bone plates and screws for osteosynthesis in small animals of up to 15kg. The robust system allows for extraordinarily quick healing and offers a high level of implant strength. The set’s advantage is that the implants only need to be removed in rare cases.
Implants for Different Procedures
In osteosynthesis, screws are used to fixate bone fragments under compression or to secure rejoined bones with plates. Our cortical screw set is available with self-tapping or non-cutting cortical screws and stands out thanks to the low continuous thread and constant diameter. Its delivery includes a practical sterilisation container and screw racks.
Bone plates and dynamic compression plates are used to form a resilient bridge between individual fractured parts. Depending on the kind of fracture, the plates are used for compression, neutralisation or as a support. The extensive plate set in this category contains an assortment of various dynamic compression plates with a length of 22 – 101 millimetres.
In addition to plates, osteosynthesis can be carried out with help of intramedullary rods or wire implants. They can even be used in combination with other osteosynthesis procedures. For this reason, we offer a practical wire implant set that contains different wire types and the suitable instruments.
