Strategic Initiatives

DePuy Synthes to Co-Promote Ortho Development's KASM Spacer in the U.S. -

DePuy Synthes entered into an exclusive agreement with Ortho Development to co-promote the KASM® Knee Articulating Spacer Mold in the U.S. The initiative will commence within 2H18. KASM is a sterile, disposable cement spacer mold to treat infection after primary knee replacement. Articulating spacers allow patients to weight bear with assistance (crutches or a walker) and possibly maintain motion during recovery. KASM is designed to help preserve range of motion, joint space and soft tissue tension. The product received FDA 510(k) clearance in 2014 and has been sold in Japan for several years.
