Stryker's new Tornier Perform® Patient-Matched Primary Reversed Glenoid was used in a surgical procedure for the first time. The limited-market release Patient-Matched Glenoid is the first surgeon-driven, primary patient-specific implant available in shoulder arthroplasty, planned on Stryker’s Blueprint® 3D Planning Software.
To generate the Patient-Matched Glenoid, the surgeon uses Blueprint Software to virtually position and execute the creation of a patient-matched implant. Once completed in Blueprint, an order is generated to manufacture the glenoid baseplate and patient-specific instrumentation. The surgeon will receive the sterile devices and execute the implantation of the baseplate using a ream-free, bone-preserving technique.
