GAINESVILLE, Fla. (March 6, 2018) – Exactech, a developer and producer of bone and joint restoration products and biologic solutions for extremities, knee and hip announced today its lineup of products to be showcased at the company’s educational exhibit at Booth #5023 at the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS) 2018 Annual Meeting, March 7-9, in New Orleans, La.
The Exactech innovations and educational opportunities to be showcased at Booth #5023 are featured on the company website and include:
The new Truliant® Knee System, a surgeon inspired primary and revision knee system designed for an efficient and reproducible experience, featuring Exactech’s new award-winning instrumentation. Seamlessly integrating with the ExactechGPS® guided personalized surgery system, Truliant supports a simple transition to computer-assisted surgery for real-time data and guidance with only two block changes using the new ExactechGPS TKA Plus Application.
The Equinoxe® Preserve is the next generation platform shoulder stem. Designed to preserve distal humeral bone while also achieving optimal stability and fixation, this platform stem is compatible with the Equinoxe® Shoulder System that uniquely focuses on anatomical replication, reverse shoulder arthroplasty and options for difficult glenoids and revisions. It can be used with the ExactechGPS Shoulder Application, the only computer-assisted surgical technology for shoulder arthroplasty. It supports surgeons from pre-operative planning through real-time execution.
The Alteon® HA Femoral Hip Stem with hydroxyapatite-coating is designed to be bone conserving, while providing initial stability to promote biologic fixation. It features reduced stem lengths, incremental stem sizing, and proportional neck geometry with a broach-only technique that offers flexibility to accommodate various surgical approaches.
The Vantage® Total Ankle System represents a new perspective in ankle arthroplasty and is Exactech’s first product in the foot and ankle market. The Vantage ankle focuses on antaomic design, fixation, biomechanics, bone removal, reliability and revision.
The InterSpace® Tapered Wedge hip spacer provides surgeons the same consistent local antimicrobial activity as the cylindrical spacer, in a new wedge-style stem design to treat patients following peri-prosthetic joint infection.
Reveille® Cartilage Processor, a cost-effective option for single stage surgery with autologous cartilage, is used for intraoperative resizing of autologous tissue into usable particles.
Scientists and surgeon consultants are scheduled at the Exactech booth to share their experiences with the company’s products. Attendees may also learn about Exactech’s patient education and practice marketing programs.
