RSB implants resorbable synthesis devices for forefoot surgery
These implants are made of resorbable materials P(L/DL)LA 70/30 which we first introduced in 2005.
We have continued to develop both the products and the material.
The significance of the resorbable material is 2-fold:
The gradual fragmentation leads to less stress shielding allowing the bone to take more of the load as it heals.
The total resorption occurs at 2 years meaning there is no metal left to irritate surrounding tissues which may lead to a second surgery for removal of the implant. This saves time and money and an operation for the patient.
LSM-Med is a fast-growing company engaged in developing, manufacturing and commercialising innovative medical solutions made from standard metallic and alternative material in the area of traumatology and foot surgery.
