Medartis is committed to providing surgeons and operating theatre personnel in cranio-maxillofacial surgery, hand and plastic surgery as well as orthopedic surgery with innovative implants, instruments and services that represent advances in osteosynthesis and thus patients' quality of life. To help it do justice to this ambitious aim, Medartis relies heavily on close collaboration with surgeons, scientists, universities and hospitals.
The hand is one of the most complex and most frequently utilized parts of the human musculoskeletal system. It is composed of a multitude of closely balanced structures, e.g. bones, muscles, ligaments, tendons, joints and nerves. The goal of hand surgery is to minimize the impact of hand diseases and injuries on daily activities and to restore and obtain as much function as possible.
Together with leading surgeons Medartis has developed the unique APTUS Hand fixation system for the management of fractures and arthrodeses of the phalanges and metacarpals. In order to meet the requirements of the delicate structures of the hand, the various plate designs are optimally adapted to the bone geometry. Materials, technologies, implants and instruments perfectly match all hand surgical issues. With the introduction of TriLock, Medartis was the first company to offer a fully modular multidirectional and angular stable hand fixation system – a trend that is becoming state-of-the-art in hand surgery.
The wrist is a multi-articular joint. It consists of the carpus, distal ulna and distal radius. Fractures of the distal radius are the most common fractures in the human body. In recent years, great changes have taken place both in the treatment options of the distal radius and the patient demands which have increased. As socioeconomic factors have become more relevant, a perfect anatomic reconstruction and a permanent reduction have been targeted together with virtually no postoperative immobilization and very early rehabilitation.
With the APTUS Radius fixation system Medartis offers a multidirectional and angular stable product line with implant plates in different designs, lengths and widths for a volar, dorsal and/or lateral approach. APTUS Radius plates with TriLock technology are anatomically adapted for an optimal stabilization of distal radius fractures and correction osteotomies as well as for arthrodeses.
The elbow is a complex joint with several articulating surfaces where the humerus, the radius and the ulna meet. Stability is achieved by a high number of ligaments and muscles attaching at the elbow. Fractures caused by direct or indirect trauma are quite frequent and often intra-articular. They may involve several bones and are frequently associated with ligamental injuries. In these cases, the restoration of the initial function of the articulation is very challenging.
Because the elbow has a strong tendency to stiffen after injury, early mobilisation is paramount. This can often only be achieved by open reduction and internal fixation. Medartis is developing a comprehensive range of plates, carefully matched to the complex anatomy of the elbow. These implants take advantage of Medartis' innovative TriLock technology providing multidirectional angular stability, which is beneficial for the treatment of intra-articular fractures of the elbow.
With the APTUS Foot systems Medartis offers the user a choice of different multidirectional and angular stable product lines with implant plates in different designs, lengths and widths for a range of applications in the foot. APTUS Foot plates with TriLock technology are anatomically adapted for an optimal stabilization of fractures, arthrodeses and osteotomies of the tarsals, metatarsals and phalanges.
