The Polypin is made of polylactide, a bioresorbable biomaterial which has proved its
worth as a material for biological implants, as shown by extensive in vitro and in vivo testing and in clinical use over several years. The special copolymer Poly(L-lactide-co-D,L-lactide) 70/30 has good absorption properties: its flexural strength remains constant for 34 weeks, which is a sufficient time for the fracture to heal, and then drops at a constant rate.

DEGRADATION. Biological degradation takes place mainly due to hydrolysis, into lactic acid, which is a natural product of metabolism, and is subsequently metabolised into CO₂ and H₂O. Within 15 months the Polypin is completely degraded from a mechanical point of view, although it can still be detected in the form of a cylindrical fragment of the original pin. After 18 to 21 month only fibrous cords are recognisable and after another three months the place of implant is filled with bony substance. Studies have shown that the same results are achieved both by the Polypin and a metal implant, but in the case of the Polypin no implantdependent complications arise.

Fractures subject to low load stresses:
Polypin 1.5
- Bone or osteochondral fragment
- Arthrodeses of fingers and toes
- Stabilisation of certain finger fractures
- Osteochondral fractures or dissecans
Polypin 2.0
- Apical fragements
- Osteochondral fractures or dissecans
- Spongiosa or lightly load-bearing
Polypin 2.7
- Large osteochondral fragments

The Polypin is available in three different diameters:
Polypin 1.5, length: 8-25 mm,
Polypin 2.0, length: 10-35 mm,
Polypin 2.7, length: 12-60 mm.
