Founded in 1991, SBM is specialized in the design, manufacture and marketing of bone repair systems for use in
orthopaedic surgery, traumatology and neurosurgery.
More than 20 years of experience
SBM is an independent company, founded by Denis CLEMENT, PhD in Biomaterials. Based in Lourdes (south-western
France), SBM has a subsidiary in Boston, Massachusetts (USA), SBM Inc.
At the heart of innovation
Not only was SBM the fi rst company to introduce tricalcium phosphate to perform bone grafts in Europe, but also was
the fi rst, in 1996, to invent implants for valgus-producing open-wedge tibial osteotomies.
Today SBM continues to stand out for its unique know-how in the manufacture of biocomposite implants such as
Duosorb, a unique bioabsorbable material which offers mechanical resistance, elasticity, and osteoconduction.
Proven high quality standards
Having expanded into new markets with increasingly strict regulations, SBM has developed a demanding, ISO
9001-13485 (2000) certifi ed quality management approach, which ensures product safety all the way from design to
implementation. Furthermore, SBM was the fi rst European company to obtain CE mark certifi cation, in the 90’s, as well as US FDA approval, in 2003, for its line of synthetic bone augmentation implants (in pure tricalcium phosphate - Biosorb).
LIGAFIX® interference screw
LIGAFIX® screws are available in two designs: round head and fl at
head to preserve the graft. The round head screws are suitable for
tibial and femoral fi xation while fl at head screws are designed for tibial fixation.
30% β-TCP + 70% PLDL .For all types of grafts, ideal for the BTB technique. Optimizes mechanical strength, the screw is in direct contact with the bone plug.
60% β-TCP + 40% PLDL. Only for soft tissue grafts.
Optimizes the kinetics of absorption.
2 heads for femoral and tibial fixation
Lengths: from 20 to 35 mm / Diameters : from 7 to 11 mm
Round head screws
Femoral end: preserves the graft during articular fl exion.
Tibial end: ensures optimal locking.
Flat head screws
Only for tibia.
Insertion facilitated at the end of screwing.
PULLUP® adjustable juxtacortical fixation system
PULLUP® Composed of a titanium plate and pre-mounted braids, PULLUP is a reproducible, simple and safe system. A blind tunnel from 15 mm and a cortical tunnel of 4.5 mm diameter promote bone preservation while ensuring a strong and rigid fixation. Available in a unique adjustable size, the implantation does not require any tunnel length planification and provides stable locking.
PULLUP® for ø 4.5 mm cortical tunnel
Lenght 12 mm / width 2/4 mm
PULLUP® XL for ø 5 to 10 mm cortical tunnel
Lenght 20 mm / width 2/4 mm
