RAPID. SIMPLE. SAFE.
Invented by a surgeon, Minne Ties is innovative technology that achieves strong and durable maxillomandibular fixation. The result is an efficient, safe, and cost-effective solution that improves the surgeon and patient experience.
HOW IT WORKS
Unlike arch bars or screw-based systems, Minne Ties is a non-invasive solution that provides the strong, steady force needed to secure the patient’s bite and successfully achieve MMF. Constructed of a coated suture with a blunt introducer on one end, and a smooth clasp-head on the other, the Minne Ties design resembles that of a familiar “zip tie.” Each Tie is applied through the interdental space, creating a balanced series of bilateral sutures.
WHY MINNE TIES?
Threaded through the interdental space and trimmed after application. The blunt introducer and suture eliminate sharp wires and screws that can cause injury.
SIMPLE. FAST. FLEXIBLE.
Application of Minne Ties sutures saves time, allowing quick and easy procedures in a non-surgical setting.
Each suture takes significantly less space in the mouth, which allows better access for plating, increased visibility of the tissue cuff for suturing and tangle-free sutures during closing.
Minne Ties requires less time than arch bars, as well as hybrid systems, saving costly surgeon and OR time. Removal of Minne Ties can be done outside the OR, eliminating the need for unreimbursed OR time.
Minne Ties Agile MMF won the Silver award in the category ER and O.R. Tools, Equipment, and Supplies — one of the nine product categories recognized within the Medical Device Excellence Awards (MDEA).
