Continuous Compression Implants for Trauma Applications

DePuy Synthes’ Continuous Compression Implants (CCI) are low profile implants manufactured from nitinol, a shape memory metal, to continuously and dynamically keep bones compressed throughout the entire healing process. With barbed and tapered legs alongside a wide bowing bridge, the CCI retains compression after repetitive loading without pull through. CCIs are offered in both the two-leg and four-leg configuration, with various sizes fit for versatile trauma application.

Features & Benefits

Continuous Compression Implants Made of Nitinol

Continuous Compression Implants Made of Nitinol

Super-elastic material that can store energy and transfer it onto bone in order to achieve compression. The goals of nitinol are to minimize the effects of bone resorption and maintain a stable construct.*

*CORROSION: Implanting metals and alloys in the human body subjects them to an aggressive chemical environment of salts, acids, and proteins, which can cause corrosion. Dissimilar metals in contact with each other can accelerate the corrosion process due to the galvanic corrosion effects1. (088387-180410)

Indication Statement

Indications: 
• Fracture and osteotomy fixation and joint arthrodesis of the hand and foot.
• Fixation of proximal tibial metaphysis osteotomy.
• Fixation of small fragments of bone (i.e. small fragments of bone which are not comminuted to the extent to preclude staple placement). These fragments may be located in long bones such as the femur, fibula and tibia in the lower extremities; the humerus, ulna or radius in the upper extremities; the clavicle; and in flat bone such as the pelvis and scapula.
Contraindications:
• Comminuted bone surface that would militate against staple placement.
• Pathologic conditions of bone such as osteopenia that would impair the ability to securely fix the implant.
• Foreign body sensitivity to metals including nickel. Where material sensitivity is suspected, appropriate tests should be made prior to implantation.
