The Surgical Need

Variable physiologic loads act on the healing sternum after a sternotomy surgical procedure. When using traditional wires for sternal closure, the high loads may produce bone cutting and fixation lost.

The Solution

STERN FIX is a sternal stabilization system made of PEEK polymer that provides continuous compression and adaptability to the chest movements. Its design and material helps absorb these loads and reduce the risk of bone cut-through.

STERN FIX is easy to use and needle-free providing a quick and reliable solution for sternal closure.
