How it Works

IlluminOss' minimally invasive, patient conforming implant offers a new solution in osteoporotic & pathologic fracture repair. The IlluminOss implant conforms to the shape of the patients intramedullary canal, providing rapid stability and strength to compromised bone. Should ancillary fixation devices be needed they can be placed anywhere along the implant. The majority of patients who have been treated with the IlluminOss System have not required a hard cast during their recovery. The lack of a cast allows patients to return to daily activities sooner.

Device Description

The IlluminOss Photodynamic Bone Stabilization System is comprised of a single use disposable procedure pack, along with a reusable curing system and instrument kit.

Indications For Use

The Photodynamic Bone Stabilization System is indicated for use in fracture alignment reduction.  It provides stabilization for bone fractures using a minimally invasive technique in which the bone is not subjected to significant weight bearing forces.  This IlluminOss procedure pack is intended for use in treatment of the metacarpal, phalange, clavicle, radius, ulna, distal radius, olecranon and fibula.  It is also indicated for the treatment of impending and actual pathological fractures of the humerus from metastatic bone disease.


How it Works

For Illustrative Purposes.


A small flexible balloon catheter is inserted into the intramedullary canal.

Step 1

The balloon is infused with a biocompatible liquid monomer causing it to expand and conform to the canal.

Step 2

The implant is cured on demand through the application of visible light.

Step 2

The implant provides strength and rotational stability to the bone.

Enables a minimally invasive surgical approach.  IlluminOss only requires a small incision for access and implant insertion thereby minimizing the potential for soft tissue damage.

Accommodating the use of ancillary fixation devices along the length of the implant. IlluminOss can be used in conjunction with fracture fixation systems such as: plates, screws and nails, for enhanced stability in compromised bone.
