Bicon’s Plateau Design

Bicon’s plateau or fin design offers at least 30% more surface area than a screw implant of the same dimensions and provides for the callus formation of mature, cortical-like, Haversian bone between the plateaus or fins of the implant.

Bicon's Plateau Design

  • Direct bone to implant contact and multiple haversian systems throughout
  • Configurations denote high mechanical properties as in cortical bone
