PROTECTION, EASY TO USE, TENSION-FREE
Short nerve defects are usually treated by direct suture, but a primary tension-free repair of the nerve is often not possible. However, mechanical tension significally limits the healing process. On the contrary, Reaxon® Direct allows for a tension-free coaptation.
Benefits of Reaxon® Direct:
- Tension-free repair for short nerve defects up to 10 mm
- Inhibits scar tissue and neuroma formation
- Off-the-shelf availability due to consignment stock
The interim analysis of an ongoing prospective, randomized clinical trial1 − with the aim to achieve an improved outcome after defect closure by direct suture with the additional usage of Reaxon® Direct − show the following results:
- Superiority of the additional usage of Reaxon® Direct 6 month post-operation
- No effect on the finger motion over joints
- Easy handling and suturing

Protection from neuroma formation
Reaxon® Direct limits the growth of scar forming cells and thereby protects the regenerating nerve not only from external mechanical compression but also from the ingrowth of fibrotic tissue.
Reaxon® Direct is supplied in the following dimensions:
|Catalog Number||GTIN||Inner Diameter||Length|
