MatrixWAVE™ MMF is a system that expands and compresses to achieve maxillomandibular fixation.
The MatrixWAVE MMF System is a bone-borne maxillomandibular fixation system that consists of a wave shaped plate that is attached to the mandible and maxilla with self-drilling locking screws. The adaptable plate can be stretched in-plane to enable surgeons to optimize screw hole location to avoid tooth roots. The plate is available in 2 heights to accommodate the use of rigid internal fixation and individual patient anatomy. The self-drilling locking screws sit proud to the plate for additional anchor points for optional bridle wires. The dental arches are brought into occlusion by wiring around the plate hooks and/or accessible screw heads.
The MatrixWAVE MMF System is indicated for the temporary treatment of mandibular and maxillary fractures and osteotomies in adults and adolescents (age 12 and higher) in whom permanent teeth have erupted.
The system is intended for temporary stabilization of mandibular and maxillary fractures and osteotomies to maintain proper occlusion during intraoperative bone fixation and postoperative bone healing (approximately 6-8 weeks). The system affords the ability to compress bone segments across a fracture. The system is not intended to be used as a tension band.
