The Inion CompressOn™ bioabsorbable compression screw has been developed to meet the needs of surgeons and patients around the world. Now, these screws have received their FDA 510k clearance! We are thrilled we can offer even more freedom for surgeons to choose bioresorbable over metal when it’s the best option for their patients. Now more patients than ever are able to benefit from the expertise of surgeons – without permanent surgical implants in their bodies.

More freedom than ever to choose bioabsorbable over metal

The Inion CompressOn™ bioabsorbable screws have been developed to make a difference, to offer choices. And due to uncompromising product development, testing and listening to surgeons with a keen ear, the Inion CompressOn™ is now optimized in terms of strength, flexibility, compression characteristics and the overall design profile. These qualities help Inion CompressOn screw to stand against any competitor, ready to excel. And the greatest thing of all: it will safely and completely resorb in 2 – 4 years, leaving the patient 100% implant free. 

The Inion CompressOn™ screws are headless, cannulated and partly threaded to make them as easy to use as possible. These screws provide quick fracture reduction and constant compression. Due to the headlessness, the screws also enter fully inside the bone which minimizes bone damage and soft tissue irritation.

The size portfolio of the Inion CompressOn is extensive including screw diameters from 2.7 mm to 6.0 mm and screw lengths from 12 mm to 90 mm. This is the reason why with the Inion CompressOn, surgeons can use biodegradable screws in a wider range of operations than ever before. The Inion CompressOn™ is designed especially for use in the surgeries of lower and upper extremities. The most common indications for the Inion CompressOn™ screws are hand and wrist fractures, olecranon fractures, foot and ankle fractures, osteotomies, arthrodeses and intra-articular fractures.
