|Wright Medical Group N.V. Highlights New Innovations at the American Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Society (AOFAS) 2017 Annual Meeting|
Wright will feature its full range of lower extremities and biologics products at exhibit booth #801 and will showcase, for the first time, three important additions to its foot and ankle portfolio:
INVISION™ Total Ankle Revision System – The first and only system developed specifically for total ankle revision arthroplasty, the INVISION Total Ankle Revision System provides a unique solution for even the most difficult revision procedures. Whether leveraged as a standalone construct or in conjunction with INFINITY and INBONETM components, the INVISION Total Ankle Revision System is an important addition to the continuum of care from total ankle replacement through any necessary revisions. The INVISION Total Ankle Revision System helps surgeons re-build bone lost through previous surgeries and provides modularity to help restore natural joint height.
ORTHOLOC™ 3Di Ankle Fracture Low Profile System – The ORTHOLOC 3Di Ankle Fracture Low Profile System features a complete range of ankle fracture plates designed specifically for the foot and ankle surgeon. The system features low-profile, anatomic plate designs and ORTHOLOC 3Di polyaxial locking screw technology, providing an innovative fracture solution that addresses a primary need for one of the foot and ankle’s largest market segments.
MICA™ Minimally-Invasive Foot & Ankle System – As the first minimally invasive solution specifically designed for foot and ankle surgery, the MICA Minimally-Invasive Foot & Ankle System provides a minimally disruptive, procedurally integrated solution that features specifically designed implants and instrumentation for percutaneous surgery of the foot. The MICA Minimally-Invasive Foot & Ankle System can be used to treat multiple pathologies including one of the most common, Hallux Valgus, commonly known as bunions. Compared to a traditional open surgery, the MICA Minimally-Invasive Foot & Ankle System has been shown to provide less pain, shorter operative times and improved cosmesis.
Wright is also conducting medical education and training courses during the AOFAS annual meeting in its mobile training lab. These courses will address total ankle arthroplasty, Charcot reconstruction and limb salvage, and ankle and hindfoot fusion using Augment®.
