The Interference Screw, Redefined.
The MILAGRO® ADVANCE Interference Screw utilizes an advanced screw design that offers exceptional bone engagement and rapid insertion. It comes available in Mitek Sports Medicine proprietary BIOCRYL RAPIDE® Biocomposite Material as well as PEEK Material.
Attachment of soft tissue grafts or bone-tendon-bone grafts to the tibia and or femur during cruciate ligament reconstruction procedures. Additionally 7, 8, 9, x23mm screws are indicated for medial & lateral collateral ligament repair, medial patellofemoral ligament reconstruction (femur fixation) of the knee, proximal bicep tenodesis in shoulder and distal biceps in the elbow.
MILAGRO ADVANCE Interference Screw dramatically improves ease of use compared to traditional interference screws:
|Bony ingrowth||BIOCRYL RAPIDE Biocomposite Material promotes bony ingrowth at the implant site1-2|
|Rapid insertion||Inserts approximately 2x faster than traditional interference screws3|
|Strong fixation||Improved interdigitation of graft threads increases overall fixation strength by 25%3|
|Effortless bone engagement||Unique Distal-tip requires 83% less effort to achieve bone engagement3|
|Robust yet gentle insertion||Ease of bone engagement and lower insertion torque ensure robust insertion into hard bone with minimal torque transmission to soft tissue grafts and tendons|
|Material choice||Available in BIOCRYL RAPIDE Biocomposite Material and PEEK|
