Arthrex AR-5028C-10 BioComposite Interference Screw 10 x 28mm
Round Delta Tapered with Disposable Sheath, PLDLA & Biphasic Calcium Phosphate
Part # AR-5028C-10 Exp 9/18, 7/18, 3/18, 11/16
The Arthrex AR-5028C-10 BioComposite Interference Screw is comprised of 30% biphasic calcium phosphate and 70% PLDLA and is intended for use as a fixation device for bone-tendon (BTB or Achilles) and soft tissue grafts during ACL and PCL reconstruction procedures.
Each screw has a stepped tapered design which maximizes insertion torque, as the screw is fully seated. The thread form has been optimized to ease insertion and maximize soft tissue and bone fixation in cortical and cancellous bone.
The Arthrex BioComposite cannulated hexalobe drive system enhances the screw family by providing one universal drive system for all screws and significantly improved torsional and insertion strength. Each screw fully seats on and is completely supported along the entire length of the driver tip. Clinical reports suggest that biphasic calcium phosphate is safe and has excellent potential for orthopaedic applications. As the focus of many bone replacement studies, early bone formation can be connected to the favorable osteoconductive and bioresorbable properties within biphasic calcium phosphates.
In Perfect sealed condition but past expiration date. Not for human use in the US.
Expiration dates have mostly to do with sterilization and not the integrity of the product. The manufacturers sterilize the products after they are packaged and it lasts so many years. The only products we caution customers about are ones that are absorbable or drug coated.
This is an absorbable item.
