The MatrixRIB® Fixation System is indicated for the fixation and stabilization of rib fractures, fusions and osteotomies (the surgical cutting or removal of bone) of normal and osteoporotic bone. Refer to the MatrixRIB Fixation System Product Insert or Surgical Technique Guide for the complete indications for use.
How it works
Only a surgeon trained in rib fracture fixation can provide advice about whether rib fracture fixation surgery is right for you. See a surgeon to learn more. The performance of surgical plates and splints for the fixation and stabilization of ribs depends on the severity of the injury, age, weight, activity level and other factors. There are potential risks and recovery takes time. Each patient and surgeon must weigh the benefits of surgery against potential risks.
