Exactech’s latest innovation in total knee replacement made its clinical debut with first Truliant® Porous surgeries performed by Kyle Swanson, MD, of The Orthopaedic & Fracture Clinic of Mankato, Minn., and James Duke, MD, of Ocala Health in Ocala, Fla. This product launch is welcomed news for orthopaedic surgeons who prefer a non-cemented approach in total knee replacement surgery.
“Exactech is entering the market with an intentional non-cemented platform that has benefited from collective industry knowledge and surgeon input,” Duke said. “Truliant Porous provides a durable bonding surface for long-term interface strength, offering solid fixation for my patients. Fully integrated with the sleek, new Truliant instrumentation, Exactech is delivering another knee product that is ready to succeed.”
Truliant Porous is designed to reduce micromotion and aid potential bony in-growth. The system features a unique 3D additive manufacturing tibial design developed to mimic the trabecular nature of cancellous bone with optimal pore size and porosity characteristics. In addition, Truliant Porous includes a combination of porous pegs and a channeled keel with flutes that are designed to increase bony-implant engagement and micromotion resistance, and the integrated bone screw fixation options allow for intra-operative stability.

According to Swanson, “The tibial preparation is very straightforward with the Truliant instrumentation. I was able to feel the stability from the combination of the tray’s porous structure and design features immediately during implant impaction.”
