SonicWeld Rx® is a revolutionary technique for use in craniomaxillofacial osteosynthesis. It combines highly advanced ultrasound technology with resorbable implants to provide extremely stable fixation and completely eliminate the need for a second operation.
The procedure is simple: resorbable meshes, plates or membranes are heated up, shaped to fit the application site and then fixed in place with SonicPins Rx® inserted into predrilled holes. This is done with a sonotrode that liquefies the pins, thus causing them to bond with the meshes, plates or membranes and penetrate into the bone cavities to anchor themselves securely.
This procedure is not only clinically proven and validated, but also impresses with its patient-friendliness. The implants are hydrolytically degraded in a controlled manner. SonicWeld Rx® is primarily stable, easy and practical to use, fast and safe. It is ideally suited for anchorage in the cranial region and represents the ideal indication for pediatric trauma patients and cancellous bone structures.
