Titanium is very biocompatible and our range of Titanium Buttons has been loosely modelled on the familiar six sizes of UHMWPE Ormrod button we have been supplying for some time.
Despite being slightly lower profile, these resist higher peak loading than their UHMWPE equivalents.
Their overall diameters have been maintained to try and limit osteolysis and the subsequent subsidence that is occasionally seen with lower footprint buttons.
Their edges have been made as smooth as possible to reduce suture wear.
The titanium buttons will find use for ligament replacement/ joint embrocation procedures, especially around the hip and stifle.
