Inion CPS® Fixation System

- Inion´s Biodegradable Answer for Cranio-Maxillofacial Surgery

All Inion CPS® implants have excellent handling properties, strength and degradation characteristics to support a more natural healing process. 

Orthognathic Skull (RGB).jpgAll Inion CPS® implants are based on Inion biodegradable polymer blends which are composed of L-Lactide, D,L-Lactide, Polyglycolide and Trimethylene Carbonate (TMC). These polymers have a long history of safe clinical use.

BenefitsInion CPS® and Inion CPS® Baby

Since their introduction in 2001, the Inion CPS® implants have been used successfully in more than 60 000 operations by an increasing number of physicians 

  • The most comprehensive biodegradable plating system available - the only one comparable to titanium in its scope of use
  • Quick and easy to use
  • Fast screw fixation with the Inion CPS® self-drilling bone taps and the surgical Pro-Dex Pro-Driver
  • Inion CPS® Baby implants reduce risk of growth restriction in children
  • No permanent metal implant left in the body reducing risk of implant migration and stress shielding
  • Predictable degradation progressively loads the bone to aid bone regeneration
  • Non-interference with postoperative imaging (X-ray, CT, MRI)
  • Addresses patient concerns about implant permanence, palpability and temperature sensitivity
  • Avoidance of removal surgery, reducing patient trauma and cost
  • Unlike other biodegradables, the implants are suited for all CMF areas, both adult and paediatric patients, including:
  1. paediatric craniofacial trauma and reconstruction
  2. fractures and reconstructive procedures of the cranium
  3. orthognathic surgery and trauma of the midface and maxilla
  4. fractures and osteotomies of the mandible*
