SMALL DIAMETER COBALT-CHROMIUM ALLOY BARS FOR YOUR SPINAL APPLICATIONS
STAINLESS now has small diameters (10mm, 6mm, 5.5mm, 5mm, etc.) available for the manufacture of longitudinal connecting rods used, for example, in thoracolumbar osteosynthesis surgery.
Indeed, the replacement of the traditional titanium used for these genuine implantable internal support by the Co-Cr alloy, is thought to considerably increase rod rigidity as well as the device’s fatigue strength.
