Features & Benefits
MILAGRO ADVANCE Interference Screw dramatically improves ease of use compared to traditional interference screws:
BIOCRYL RAPIDE Biocomposite Material promotes bony ingrowth at the implant site1-2
Inserts approximately 2x faster than traditional interference screws3
Improved interdigitation of graft threads increases overall fixation strength by 25%3
Effortless bone engagement
Unique Distal-tip requires 83% less effort to achieve bone engagement3
Robust yet gentle insertion
Ease of bone engagement and lower insertion torque ensure robust insertion into hard bone with minimal torque transmission to soft tissue grafts and tendons
