The RapidFlap LS system is a two sided resorbable craniotomy fixation device. The clamps are made of the same proven LactoSorb® co-polymer that has been used in craniomaxillofacial cases since 1996.

This system provides an easy-to-use, streamlined implant which achieves predictable resorption in approximately twelve months.1,2

Features And Benefits

  • Made of LactoSorb material (82% Poly-L-Lactic Acid and 18% Poly-Glycolic Acid)
  • Resorbs and is eliminated from the body in approximately one year1,2
  • Easy-to-use, which may reduce O.R. time
  • May eliminate CT/MRI artifacts due to its unique co-polymer material3

RapidFlap LS Fixation System is indicated for use in pediatric craniotomy flap fixation.
