This new bone void filler expands our current biologic portfolio and provides surgeons with another best-in-class product from OsteoMed.
ADDISON, Texas (PRWEB) March 05, 2013
OsteoMed, LLC, a leading, privately held medical device company specializing in small bone implants and biologics, has announced the launch of OsteoVation QWIK. OsteoVation QWIK consists of a proprietary composite of calcium phosphate and calcium sulfate granules, and is indicated to fill bony voids and gaps of the skeletal system. The unique formulation creates a macroporous construct that allows faster bone remodeling, while maintaining targeted compressive strength. OsteoVation QWIK is packaged in both impact and Inject formulas that provide surgical options for both traditional open or minimally-invasive surgical procedures. Both formulations are osteoconductive and provide a scaffold to enhance the bone during the healing process.
Dave Kelly, Vice President of Small Bone Orthopedics said, “All of us at OsteoMed are excited about the market introduction of OsteoVation QWIK. This new bone void filler expands our current biologic portfolio and provides surgeons with another best-in-class product from OsteoMed. OsteoVation QWIK is the perfect complementary product to our existing Small Bone Orthopedics product offering. OsteoVation QWIK provides surgeons the ability to incorporate this innovative bone void filler while using other OsteoMed products such as ExtremiFix, our Large Cannulated Screw System, Hand Plating System (HPS) and the Foot Plating System (FPS) where indicated. OsteoVation QWIK is just one of several exciting new products scheduled to launch in 2013.”
