Resorbable Ostheosynthesis

With SonicWeld Rx®, KLS Martin has developed a path-breaking system for craniofacial surgery. It combines cutting-edge ultrasonic technology with resorbable implants and thus creates unrivalled three-dimensional initial stability. Since all implant components are made of resorbable materials, no second surgery is required - a considerable advantage, especially when performing osteosyntheses on still growing bone structures of children.

The core component of this procedure is what is referred to as the SonicWelder Rx, an ultrasound generator that is used to generate ultrasonic waves of precisely defined frequency with are then focused with a sonotrode. The SonicPin Rx® is picked up with the sonotrode tip and placed onto a pilot hole.

When activating the ultrasound generator, the pin is set vibrating via the sonotrode. The friction between the vibrating pin and the bone surface generates heat, liquefying the pin surface and thus enabling it to glide into the hole. By changing the state of aggregation, the pin even penetrates into bone cavities that could never be reached by conventional resorbable screws or using the conventional procedure. In addition, the head of the SonicPin bonds with the membrane, creating a three-dimensional construction of unmatched initial stability.


Dental Applications

Widely published and taught by experts, this dimension is the minimum bone volume needed around a dental implant to anchor it firmly in the jaw for years to come. This is the goal for the best functional and aesthetic solution – and SonicWeld Rx® Dental from KLS Martin helps you achieve it with a method that is simple, practical, and patient-friendly.

SonicWeld Rx® Dental is based on an idea that was originally intended for woodwelding. KLS Martin adapted this ultrasonic fixation method to applications in maxillofacial trauma and pediatric cranial bone surgery. By 2009 the product had proven itself in the hands of preprosthetic surgeons as well.
