|Wright Medical Group N.V. Highlights New Product Launches at the American College of Foot and Ankle Surgeons (ACFAS) 2018 Scientific Conference|
Wright will feature its full range of lower extremities and biologic solutions at exhibit booth #244, including the INVISION™ Total Ankle Revision System with PROPHECY Preoperative Navigation, the first preoperative planning system with patient-specific instrumentation for ankle revision arthroplasty. The introduction of INVISION with PROPHECY is an important addition to Wright’s total ankle portfolio, extending the use of preoperative planning to the entire continuum of care from primary through revision procedures.
“The INVISION Total Ankle Revision System with PROPHECY Preoperative Navigation builds on Wright Medical’s commitment to providing physicians with innovative tools that lead to the best possible patient outcomes,” said
The PROPHECY System was first approved for total ankle replacement in 2012 and has been clinically proven to help surgeons accurately align ankle replacements1 and increase surgical efficiency by reducing OR time and potentially cost2. Developed from the patient’s own CT scan, implant sizing and alignment are determined using the patient’s unobstructed anatomic landmarks and the surgeon’s preferences. PROPHECY alignment guides are subsequently created, providing patient-specific instruments to help the surgeon precisely position implants while reducing surgical steps, which in turn allows for less procedural complexity and surgery time.
“Revision of a failed total ankle arthroplasty remains a challenge,” said Dr.
Key benefits of PROPHECY now include:
Recent new products to be featured at ACFAS include:

Whether leveraged as a standalone construct or in conjunction with INFINITY and INBONE 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.
