DePuy Synthes ATTUNE Knee Linked to Improved Quality of Life, Shorter LOS

By Julie A. Vetalice

Study results indicate that DePuy Synthes' ATTUNE knee may be associated with positive impacts on patient function and shorter lengths of hospital stays.

The studies yielded a variety of findings, such as:

  • A statistically significant improvement in knee physical function at six months with ATTUNE vs. pre-op baseline, as demonstrated in 80% of 200 cases.
  • An observation that ATTUNE Knee patients were discharged from the hospital sooner than with comparative implants. Further, ATTUNE patients were 39% less likely to be discharged to a skilled nursing facility.
