ComposiTCP 30 Interference Screw

  • Made with a composite blend of 70% PLDLA and 30% beta Tri-Calcium Phosphate

ComposiTCP 60 Interference Screw

  • Made with a composite blend of 40% PLDLA and 60% beta Tri-Calcium Phosphate
  • The composite blend of 40% PLDLA and 60% beta Tri-Calcium Phosphate has been studied and the results reported in an in-vivo animal study showed that “in comparison with pure PLA, TCP-containing composite materials had faster degradation kinetics, caused less inflammatory reaction, and promoted contact osteogenesis.” In addition, the study discussed how increased amounts of TCP have been shown to stimulate the proliferation of osteogenous cells.1**
