Exactech Unveils New Knee, Hip and Shoulder Revision Systems during AAOS 2016 Annual Meeting, Exhibit #3881
Gainesville, Fla. (March 1, 2016) – Exactech Inc. (Nasdaq: EXAC), a developer and producer of bone and joint restoration products for extremities, knee, hip, spine and biologic solutions, announced today its lineup of products to be unveiled at the company’s educational exhibit, Booth #3881, at the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons (AAOS) 2016 Annual Meeting, March 1-5 in Orlando, Fla.
“We have focused our recent development efforts on delivering innovations that resolve some of the most complex and challenging demands that orthopaedic surgeons face in the O.R.—revision total joint surgery,” said Exactech Chief Executive Officer David Petty. “We are eager to launch three new revision implant and instrumentation systems this year and to share updates to our InterSpace® spacers, AcuDriver® cement removal systems and biologic solutions, which fully equip surgeons to tackle whatever they face when revising a total joint implant.”
Highlights of Exactech’s latest innovations for revision arthroplasty include:
- The only modular device for reverse shoulder arthroplasty with significant proximal bone loss, the Equinoxe® Humeral Reconstruction Prosthesis offers a unique and stable solution for complex and challenging humeral reconstruction cases.*
- Exactech’s new comprehensive Revision Knee System delivers a high-performance portfolio of implants, instruments and advanced surgical technology for reproducible results in a streamlined revision procedure.
- The Alteon® Monobloc Revision Femoral Stem incorporates the functionality of a modular design with the simplicity of a monobloc stem. A press-fit, distally fixed, one-piece tapered, splined titanium stem, it is designed to improve surgical experiences and clinical outcomes.
- The newest addition to the InterSpace® family, the Tapered Wedge Hip Spacer, allows surgeons to more conservatively treat patients following a peri-prosthetic joint infection of a wedge-style hip stem. Exactech is pleased to share the data behind InterSpace’s preformed spacer technology with 20+ years’ clinical experience.
- Also an important complement to revision surgery, Exactech offers biologic solutions such as Optecure®, an engineered bone graft for reconstruction of the spine, pelvis and extremities. Optecure and Optecure+CCC can be used in complex cases to help repair bone defects.
In addition to a renewed focus on revision total joint arthroplasty, Exactech’s technical staff and surgeon consultants will share their experiences with other recent market introductions such as the Alteon® Tapered Wedge Femoral Stem and enhancements to the Equinoxe® platform shoulder system. A focal point of Exactech’s educational exhibit will be live demonstrations of ExactechGPS® Guided Personalized Surgery system, a computer-assisted technology which supports the Optetrak Logic® comprehensive primary knee system.
