To satisfy the higher clinical demand springing from degenerative pathologies of the hand and wrist (such as the rhizoarthrosis), Sintea Plustek provides an innovative PyroCarbon joint replacement product line. The PyroCarbon prostheses for hand surgery are designed to completely restore joint functionality, as well as to improve the aesthetic aspect.

The manufacturing process of PyroCarbon is complicated and detailed taking into account the anatomical shape, the biocompatibility, the biomechanics, and the surgical aspects. Moreover, the PyroCarbon hand implant boasts several advantages such as high fatigue and wear resistance, strength, a modulus of elasticity similar to cortical bone, and a superior level of biocompatibility which results in osteo-apposition with no risk of rejection.
