First Case with Ensemble Orthopedics Pyrocarbon Interpositional CMC

Ensemble Orthopedics announced the first implantation of Ensemble CMC™, the first implant in a product line of minimally invasive joint replacements for the hand and wrist.

The Ensemble CMC was designed to expand the treatment options for osteoarthritis of the carpometacarpal joint to treat a broader range of patients using a minimally invasive procedure that can yield shorter recovery times. Its saddle shape replaces the damaged bearing surfaces of the metacarpal and trapezium bones with an interpositional implant allowing for normal, pain-free motion.

The implant is manufactured with biocompatible On-X® pyrocarbon, which has shown superior wear resistance against bone when compared to metals or ceramic.
