Stryker Pediatric Mandibular Distractor

Content Contributor

Stryker offers an internal pediatric mandibular distraction device. The device contains an anti-reverse
locking mechanism that prevents backward movement of the jawbone. It is milled from one solid block
of titanium. This avoids the need to weld the footplates onto the distractor body and, therefore,
eliminates weak points. A specific form on anodization is used to minimize tissue adhesions to the
device. The distraction mechanism is concealed within the device, reducing exposure to the cut edge of
bone and minimizing the chance that tissue may lodge in the device. Removal of the external arm can be
done at the bedside, avoiding the need for a secondary procedure.
