GLACE

Advantages

GLACE™ products are typically used in the reconstruction of cranial bone defects, such as in post-traumatic surgery or following a tumour resection, an infected craniotomy bone flap or a neurosurgical operation. They are also ideal for surgical bone reconstructions of the cranial and maxillofacial regions, including the orbital floor.

Bacteriostatic

On average, a third of all implants installed in the cranial region become infected. Bioactive glass promotes the growth of new bone and has been clinically proven to create a bacteriostatic environment around the implant. As a result, with GLACE™ Implants, the risk of infection is minimal.

Sandwich structure

The unique composite structure of GLACE™ allows instant absorption of body fluids into the implant, so new bone formation begins at the surgery. The tissue compatibility of GLACE™ Implants helps ensure clinical success, with the implant setting firmly as part of the patient’s skull.

Easy installation

Instead of being placed in the bone defect, GLACE™ Implants are installed on top of the patient’s bone margin using self-drilling titanium screws. The higher installation tolerance translates into easier and more successful surgeries.

Imagined for imaging

The raw materials of GLACE™ Implants are non-metallic and specially produced for Skulle Implants Corporation. This ensures that they do not interfere with MRI results or radiotherapy.

GLACE™ Instruments and CMF Screws

Glace™ Implants are surgically implanted and secured in place with self-drilling titanium screws. The non-sterile screws are provided separately in a screw ring and sterilized on a sterilization tray with reusable instruments, a driver handle and tips.

+The instrument tray contains two screwdrivers to enable two surgeons to work together. +The non-sterile screws are provided separately in a screw ring and sterilized on a sterilization tray with the reusable instruments, driver handle and tips. +The Instrument Kit consists of screwdrivers, tips, self-drilling titanium screws (4 mm and 6 mm), and an instrument tray.
