Wright will feature its full range of lower extremities and biologic solutions at exhibit booth #133, including the following products:
- CARTIVA® Synthetic Cartilage Implant (SCI) – As the first new articulating surface material to receive U.S. Premarket Approval (PMA) by the
FDAin 18 years, the CARTIVA SCI is indicated for treating arthritis at the base of the great toe and the only product of its kind backed by Level 1 clinical evidence. Unlike fusion, Cartiva reduces joint pain without sacrificing the foot’s natural movement and retains mobility and range of motion. More information on the CARTIVA SCI can be found at www.cartiva.net.
- PROstep™ Minimally Invasive Surgery (MIS) System – Specifically designed for foot and ankle surgery, the PROstep system provides a minimally invasive, procedurally integrated solution that features specifically designed implants and instrumentation for percutaneous surgery of the foot. The PROstep System can be used to treat a variety of forefoot and hindfoot pathologies, including one of the most common, Hallux Valgus, commonly known as bunions, a painful foot deformity that is prevalent in approximately 23% in adults aged 18-65 years and 35.7% in elderly people aged over 65 yearsi. Compared to a traditional open surgery, the PROstep System has been shown to get patients back on their feet faster, with less pain and an improved cosmetic result. More information on PROstep can be found at www.ProstepMIS.com.
- AUGMENT® Injectable Bone Graft – AUGMENT Injectable is the first clinically proven injectable protein therapeutic to come to the U.S. orthopaedic market offering an alternative to autograft in ankle and/or hindfoot fusion procedures, which translates into an estimated market opportunity of approximately
$300 millionin the U.S. The launch of AUGMENT Injectable provides foot and ankle surgeons in the U.S. with a safe and effective alternative to autograft that includes significantly improved handling characteristics to enable easier and more precise delivery to the fusion site, while eliminating the need for autograft and the associated morbidities of autograft harvest. More information on AUGMENT can be found at www.augmentbonegraft.com.
- Total Ankle Continuum of Care – Comprised of Wright’s INBONE™ and INFINITY™ Total Ankle Systems, the INVISION™ Total Ankle Revision System and PROPHECY™ Preoperative Navigation System, this comprehensive product portfolio is the surgeons #1 choice for primary and revision ankle arthroplasty. The INFINITY total ankle system combines a low-profile tibial implant design with a resurfacing talar component designed for full fluoroscopic visualization to ensure proper implant seating. The INVISION™ Total Ankle Revision System is the first and only system developed specifically for total ankle revision arthroplasty and is now available with preoperative planning. The PROPHECY Preoperative Navigation System is the first and only preoperative navigation for total arthroplasty, combining computer imaging and the patient’s own CT scan data to create patient-specific alignment guides for use during the surgical operation.
