The Apex Knee™ system, including primary cruciate retaining, posterior stabilized and revision knee options, offers the key features that surgeons are looking for in a contemporary total knee replacement system.
East Taunton, MA (PRWEB) March 08, 2012
OMNIlife science, Inc. (a subsidiary of Orthopaedic Synergy, Inc.) today announced clearance of its Apex Revision Knee System by the United States Food and Drug Administration. The Apex Knee™ System, including the new Apex Revision Knee, is intended for use as a primary or revision total knee replacement. This implant system may be used for conditions such as non-inflammatory degenerative joint disease including osteoarthritis and avascular necrosis. Combined with an intuitive surgical protocol and instrumentation, Apex Knee™ prostheses are designed to provide surgeons intra-operative versatility, allowing them to effectively provide patients with restored range of motion and pain relief.
The Apex Revision Knee is intended for patients that require additional stabilization due to inadequate ligament function and may require augmentation and/or stem extensions due to inadequate bone stock; conditions which may affect more than 70,000 knee replacement patients a year in the U.S. The Revision Knee System adds new revision femoral components, constrained tibial inserts, femoral augments, and stems to the current Apex Knee™ System. The Apex Revision Knee shares the foundation of the Apex Knee™ System’s kinematics, sizing, and versatility allowing surgeons to provide a continuum of care for their patients requiring total knee replacement.
“The addition of the Apex Revision Knee System is an important step in our strategy to offer a complete total knee replacement product line to our customers. The Apex Knee™ system, including primary cruciate retaining, posterior stabilized and revision knee options, offers the key features that surgeons are looking for in a contemporary total knee replacement system.” said George Cipolletti, Chief Executive Officer of OMNIlife science, Inc.
