Only the S-Core® Platform provides a secure structural repair of the underlying bone with a platform for an allograft augmentation for a “time zero” repair that allows the patient to return to activity sooner. The device comes in a wide range of sizes to address most lesions of the upper extremeties.
Hand / Wrist
PRC: Upon excision of the proximal bones surgeon may see lesion in base of the Capitate or Lunate Fossa.
CMC Arthroplasty: S-Core® technique negates the need for trapeziectomy or LRTI procedure. Preserves Grip Strength, Preserves Pinch Strength, reduce OR time, patient mobilizes immediately.
Distal Radius: Past trauma can leave lesions or cause arthritic changes of the distal radius. Lunate Fossa or Scaphoid Fossa
Elbow: S-Core® provides a simple, reproducible cost effective solution for patients with OCD or OA of the elbow joint. S-Core® restores joint contact pressures of the radiocapitellar joint. Its strong time zero fixation allows the patient the ability to immediately mobilize thus reducing potential flexion contracture.
