Arthrosurface launched SpeedSpiral™, a load-bearing biologic carpometacarpal implant to treat osteoarthritis in the thumb.
SpeedSpiral uses a pre-shaped, dense, flexible allograft implant to supplement and support the flexor carpi radialis tendon and/or the capsuloligamentous structures at the thumb. Its cylindrical shape is designed to reduce the risk of metacarpal subsidence that is common to other autograft-only procedures, and avoid thumb shortening.
SpeedSpiral is sterile, decellularized and freeze-dried. As no rehydration is necessary, it also minimizes the length of the surgical procedure and hospital stay.
