 Novel MatrixRIB System to Fix Rib Fracture

DePuy Synthes, a J&J firm, has just come out with a new MatrixRIB System, which is a novel set of instruments and plates to set right fractured ribs.

MatrixRIB™ happens to be the only rib fixation system which has received the approval of the AO Foundation.

The pre-shaped titanium plates are designed in such a way as to make easier implantation.

Adam Shiroff, MD, FACS, Chief of Trauma, Jersey Shore University Medical System and Assistant Professor of Surgery at Rutgers Robert Wood Medical School said, "Surgical fixation and stabilization of painful rib fractures is a growing procedure and the introduction of new MIPO instrumentation should help make it an even more attractive option for both surgeons and patients. The instrumentation facilitates a less invasive rib fixation procedure, and a less invasive procedure may result in less pain, quicker recovery and reduced hospitalization."
