One such comes from Exactech, Inc., developer and producer of bone and joint restoration products for hip, knee, shoulder, spine and biologic materials. The company is trumpeting its product offerings that are being featured at the show.
EFORT, or the European Federation of National Associations of Orthopaedics and Traumatology is seeing its 15th Annual Congress taking place this week, June 4-6 in London. Exactech will be there, its goody bag including:
Knee: The company is celebrating 20 years of Exactech Knee with its first international introduction of ExactechGPS® — Guided Personalized Surgery, the first advanced surgical technology to provide a real-time patient-specific solution in total knee arthroplasty. With a touch screen in the sterile field, ExactechGPS puts real-time visual guidance and alignment data at the surgeon’s fingertips. Customized for surgeon preferences, the company says its ExactechGPS is a powerful addition to the surgical team in addressing their goals of efficacy, efficiency and economics. A surgical skills area will allow clinicians to see live demonstrations of ExactechGPS and to gain hands-on experience with this advanced surgical technology and the Optetrak Logic® knee system.
Exactech is also introducing Optetrak Logic Porous PS, which offers a textured, CoCr coating option with claimed increased average pore size and greater porosity than traditional spherical beads.
Hip: The Exactech Hip portfolio includes solutions for primary, fracture and revision hip reconstruction.
Shoulder: The company is boasting that after nine years of clinical use and 32 peer-reviewed studies it had it “Right from the Start.” The company will be showcasing its Equinoxe® Platform Shoulder System, which it is claiming is the fastest growing shoulder system in the industry. Exactech will also be using the event to introduce the Equinoxe® Cage Glenoid, designed to offer several benefits including minimized operating room time and enhanced fixation through interference fit of the plasma coated central cage.
Biologics: Products on show include Optecure® bone matrix and the flexibility of combining with saline, blood, autogenous bone marrow and autologous bone graft. Also Accelerate® Concentrating System: Designed for the safe and rapid preparation of autologous platelet rich plasma (PRP) from a small sample of blood at the patient’s point of care.
