SternaLock® 360

For patients with poor bone health.

The SternaLock® 360 Sternal Closure System approximates, compresses, and rigidly fixates the sternum. Each implant is a plate and band combination that provides 360-degree compression of the sternum. With a wider band, the SternaLock 360 system reduces sternal cut-through and helps provide a lasting solution for patients with normal and poor bone quality.

SternaLock® 360 features:

Selective Surgical logo icon

Combines the techniques of rigid fixation with a cerclage material into a single sternal closure system.

Selective Surgical logo icon

Indicated for use in the stabilisation and fixation of fractures of the sternum including sternal fixation following sternotomy and sternal reconstructive procedures, to promote fusion.

Selective Surgical logo icon

The cerclage material serves to facilitate sternal approximation, and the plates and screws serve to provide rigid fixation and prevent sternal movement and separation.

Benefits of SternaLock® 360

SternaLock 360 is stronger than wire cerclage in an osteoporotic model.

The cerclage band is more effective at maintaining sternal compression compared to wire cerclage.

SternaLock 360 can withstand higher loads compared to wire cerclage for a prolonged period of time.
