Staples, Bone, Compression, Heat Reshaping

Definition : Compression bone staples that can be reconformed to their original shape after being delivered into the bones by applying a heated electric current through them. These staples apply a compression force across bone fractures or fusion sites by deflecting their prongs; they are made of special shape-memory metal alloys (e.g., nitinol). Heat reshaping staples are available in several sizes and shapes; they are intended to accelerate the healing response of bones. The staples are used in procedures such as general fracture fixation; skull, maxillofacial, and other oral fractures; and ligament reattachment.
