Mako update:

  • Expanded limited market launch for total knee to include additional sites, which will be training centers as full launch approaches (slated for AAOS 2017 meeting)

  • Results from a pre-clinical interbody fusion study of the 3D-printed Tritanium PL Interbody Cage demonstrated statistically superior range of motion, bone in-growth profile and greater average construct stiffness vs. PEEK and titanium plasma-sprayed PEEK cages
  • Within 4Q, launched the LITe BIO hand-held bone graft material delivery device for direct visualization; accommodates a surgeon’s preferred graft material in any spinal fusion
