ORTHOMESH Resorbable Graft Containment System maintains the relative postion of weak bony tissue such as bone grafts, bone graft substitutes or bone fragments from comminuted fractures. ORTHOMESH can be contoured to match the anatomy when heated in a water bath. It resorbs in approximately 12 months.

Indications for Use

ORTHOMESH Resorbable Graft Containment system is indicated for use in maintaining the relative position of weak bony tissue such as bone grafts, bone graft substitutes or bone fragments from comminuted fractures.

 

ORTHOMESH implants may be used alone (without traditional rigid fixation) to maintain the relative position of bone grafts, bone graft substitutes or bone fragments in non-load-bearing reconstruction procedures involving areas where bone stability has not been compromised, such as tumor resection and iliac crest graft harvest sites.

 

ORTHOMESH implants must be used in conjuction with traditional rigid fixation in load bearing applications to maintain the relative position of bone grafts, bone graft substitutes or bone fragments in reconstructive procedures involving long bones, flat bones, short bones, irregular bone, appendicular skeleton and thorax. These devices are not intended for use in the spine. The devices are not intended for load bearing indications unless used in conjunction with traditional rigid fixation.

Features & Benefits

  • Allows proliferation of new blood vessels into the graft
  • Restricts the ingrowth or prolapse of soft tissue, which could inhibit bone regeneration 
  • Reabsorbs in approximately 12 months
  • Degrades without inflammatory complications common in other semi-crystalline structures 1,2
  • Radiolucent
