Stryker launched Prophecy® Infinity® Resect-Through Guides for use in total ankle replacement surgeries. The system allows surgeons to improve O.R. efficiency by reducing potentially time-consuming interoperative steps in a streamlined surgical process.
“The new Prophecy Infinity Resect-Through Guides System builds on the product line’s legacy of success in the foot and ankle market,” said Michael Rankin, VP Marketing and Medical Education, Stryker’s Foot & Ankle business. “After 35,000 cases planned over the last nine years, the latest offering in the Prophecy System continues to push innovation that will advance ease-of-use and accuracy in the operating room.”
The Prophecy Infinity Resect-Through Guides allow surgeons to take fewer steps in total ankle replacement surgeries than the Prophecy standard pin-through technique. The system helps increase efficiency in the O.R. by using just one guide for both drilling and cutting, reducing the number of steps in a patient’s surgical plan. Metal guides maintain cutting stability, while optional holes can couple alignment for the talus. The system also uses improved fluoroscopic visualization that can help surgeons view coronal alignment, positioning and implant size, all in one fluoro shot.
