Smith+Nephew announced the full market release of two key products in the total ankle and total shoulder replacement segments - the CADENCE Total Ankle Flat Cut Talar Dome System and ATLASplan™ Shoulder 3D Planning and patient-specific instrument (PSI) System.
The CADENCE Total Ankle Flat Cut Talar Dome allows surgeons to treat a wide range of patients with varying anatomy and deformity for primary and revision procedures, while simultaneously addressing the customer segment that is looking for the efficiency of a surgical approach with one simple cut on the talus.
ATLASplan software was developed in conjunction with Materialise, provider of 3D planning and printing for medical applications. It offers a web-based, user-friendly interface for shoulder arthroplasty preoperative planning as well as a patient-specific surgical guide that utilizes the base of the coracoid for stability allowing for reproducible guide pin placement. ATLASplan 3D planning plus patient specific instrumentation is designed to facilitate greater accuracy in the OR compared to 2D imaging without templating. An optional PSI system can be ordered to help a surgeon translate the preoperative plan to the OR.
The portfolio is the result of acquiring the Extremity Orthopaedics business of Integra LifeSciences earlier in 2021.
