The first clinical results for the BONEHELIX® in humerus fractures are encouraging. The medullary cavity remains intact, and callus formation is actively stimulated by the micro movement allowed. Observation of the indicators and the details of fracture formation showed a shorter bone healing time during the natural callus formation process.
91% very good and good results for the BONEHELIX® in humerus fractures clearly and convincingly demonstrate the possibilities present in a limited flexibility implant. This is offset by only 9% of failures, which, on closer analysis, can be attributed to procedural errors.
