Features & Benefits

 

Features and Benefits
  • A low profile for minimal palpability
  • An anatomic fit is achieved by the clover-leaf design of the top disk. This allows the implant to adapt to the shape of the cranium
  • Available in four diameters: 11 mm, 13 mm, 18 mm, and 22 mm
  • Offered with smooth or textured bottom disks
  • Specially designed smooth disk edges
  • Available in sterile and nonsterile packaging

Application Forceps for FlapFix

  • Only one instrument is needed for tensioning and cutting of the FlapFix
  • Tensioning to a secure fit and cutting of the tube is done with a single, easy “firm handshake” action
  • Ergonomic design for either right- or left- handed operation prevents slippage
  • Easy access to the operation site due to deflected tip

Application Instrument for FlapFix

  • Only one instrument is needed for crimping, tensioning, and cutting of the FlapFix
  • Pre-crimping of implants is performed in a single, easy hand movement with a specially designed crimping side
  • Crimping allows the bone flap to be held in place and repositioned, if necessary, before the final tightening
  • Tensioning to a secure fit and cutting the tube is done with a single and easy “closing hand” action
  • Side insertion of the implant into the application instrument prevents depression of the dura
  • Ergonomic design for either right or left handed operation
