The CARTIVA® Synthetic Cartilage Implant (SCI) device is comprised of an organic hydrogel polymer made of polyvinyl alcohol and saline. CARTIVA® SCI has a high water content, and its elastic and compressive mechanical properties are similar to articular cartilage.1 The device is intended to replace focal areas of painful damaged cartilage thereby reducing pain and maintaining range of motion in the first metatarsophalangeal (MTP) joint.
The clear Introducer provides visual confirmation of implant placement during insertion. Markings give the ability to confirm proper implant orientation. Introducer tip fits into the cavity to provide enhanced stability during implant delivery.
New Cavity Depth Gauge
Provides confirmation of cavity depth.
Off-the-shelf set improves operating room efficiencies. Sterile pre-packaged sets ensure instruments are ready for surgery when you are.
No Sterilization/Reprocessing Costs
Single-use instruments minimize risk for contamination and save time and money spent on reprocessing.
Single-use instruments reduce storage space. The compact set is 88% lighter and 78% smaller than the reusable tray with instruments.
Easy Instrument Identification
Color coded packaging provides easy identification of instrument size required for surgery. 8mm and 10mm pre-packaged sets available.
