How It Works

The BioZorb® marker is an implantable device that marks the surgical site of tissue removal in three dimensions. The marker consists of an open framework structure that is slowly resorbed by the body over time. The framework has six titanium marker clips arranged in a fixed array to assist visualization on clinical imaging. BioZorb is placed at the time of surgical tissue removal – for example, during breast surgery. Its unique open design allows for tissue in-growth during the healing process.1

Open Design

  • Compatible with suture placement in and around cavity
  • Useful with oncoplastic cavity closure for partial breast reconstruction2

Bioabsorbable Framework

  • Provides stable, three dimensional geometry for marker clips
  • Reabsorbed by the body in a year or more

Six Titanium Marker Clips

  • Provide permanent 3D visualization at the surgical site
  • Mark the surgical site for future medical procedures and/or imaging
