Biotrak Standard Screw

  • Radiolucent
    Composed of PLLA, Biotrak devices should help minimize interference with imaging devices.
  • Headless Design
    The headless design allows the screw to be completely buried below the bone/cartilage surface, preventing damage to adjacent structures caused by a proud screw head.
  • Cannulation
    Biotrak screws and instruments are cannulated to facilitate accurate percutaneous and/or arthroscopic insertion.
  • Variable Thread Pitch
    The wider pitch thread at the tip of the screw penetrates the bone faster than the finer trailing threads, gradually compressing the two fragments as the screw is advanced.
  • Resorbable
    The Biotrak screw is manufactured from 100% poly L-lactic acid (PLLA), a material that is completely resorbed by the body in approximately 2-5 years.
  • Ejector
    The ejector releases the driver from the screw in a controlled manner. Laser marks on the ejector indicate the depth of the proximal end of the screw beneath the bone’s surface.

The Acumed Biotrak Standard Screw has been widely recognized for its success in treating osteochondral defects in the knee. However, the benefits of the screw translate equally well to a wide variety of other indications in the upper and lower extremities, including fractures, fusions, and osteotomies. Strong compression, holding power, and pull-out strength makes Biotrak a reliable choice. Some indications for the Biotrak Standard Screw include: osteochondral defects (OCDs), femoral condyle, patella, carpal arthodeses, interphalangeal fractures, humeral condyle fractures, radial styloid fractures, chevron osteotomies (bunions), allograft procedures, and navicular fractures.
