StraCos 3D Rib Clips
StraCos 3D Rib Clips are intended for the surgical stabilisation of single, multiple and comminuted fractures of the ribs, either immediately after trauma or secondary after failed conventional therapy.
The clips are attached over the site of the fracture, to prevent movement of the floating rib section, facilitating a quick and painless healing process.
StraCos Rib Clips are applied with no screws, preventing damage to the neurovascular bundle, and preserving possibly weakened bone resultant from the trauma event. The titanium prosthetic can be manipulated easily to any anatomy and quickly attached using a pair of universal pliers. Chest trauma is often conservatively treated, however this can lead to chronic pain, and bone non-union leading to further complications for the patient. Rib fixation has been proven to reduce hospital length of stay and morbidity rates.
