Features & Benefits

MILAGRO ADVANCE Interference Screw dramatically improves ease of use compared to traditional interference screws:

Bony ingrowth

BIOCRYL RAPIDE Biocomposite Material promotes bony ingrowth at the implant site1-2

Rapid insertion

Inserts approximately 2x faster than traditional interference screws3

Strong fixation

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

Material choice

Available in BIOCRYL RAPIDE Biocomposite Material and PEEK
