New article about surgeons building the Adhfix composite fixation plate


The BoneFix Project is based on the development of light-cured, customisable implants that can be customised on site. These innovations have the potential to enhance the surgical outcome for bone fractures or restoration surgery.

Within the project Biomedical Bonding’s Bonevolent AdhFix, the first fixator made from a composite light-cured in surgery, allows for patient-specific plates that are contoured to each fracture.

A fracture fixator’s mechanical durability is crucial. Customisable implants must always meet the load-bearing requirements. The AdhFix creation method must be easy to understand and provide plates that work as intended. Here, a study conducted in the BoneFix project led by surgeons from Region H in Copenhagen and biomechanical researchers at AO Research Institute in Davos assesses the inter-¬†and intra-surgeon biomechanical variability and usability of the AdhFix osteosynthesis platform. Six surgeons from novices to specialists performed ten osteosyntheses with AdhFix using a synthetic fracture model. The mechanical performance, the implant size, and the time taken to complete the fixation was analysed. The on-site light-curing and sculpturing…
