Artelon introduced FLEXBAND™ SOLO and ATL Anchoring Systems for ankle ligament reconstruction, including treatment of highly complex cases.
Artelon's Dynamic Matrix™ technology is a proprietary polymeric bio-textile. Dynamic Matrix is designed to mimic the natural mechanical and biological properties of healing ligament tissue. In clinical studies, Dynamic Matrix has shown the ability to protect the surgical repair during early healing, quickly restore the mechanics of motion, and support development of regenerating ligament tissue before dissolving over five to six years.
"Artelon's new systems represent the first holistic technology approach to ankle stabilization that mitigates use of multiple overlapping point solutions previously required to repair complex cases," said CEO Aaron Smith. "We are focused on bringing value to patients and healthcare providers through a clinician-friendly platform that simplifies repair while facilitating optimal restoration of stability and motion. Our goal is to permit faster recovery and improved long-term results for patients who suffer from chronic ankle instability."
