Study Results: ATTUNE Knee Clinical and Economic Data

By Julie A. Vetalice

Study results indicate that, in a value-based healthcare environment, the value of a knee replacement is measured not only by implant survivorship, but also patient reported outcomes and economic benefits of the procedure.

The report assessed current data from DePuy Synthes' ATTUNE® Knee Evidence Generation Program. This comprised data from company-initiated studies, investigator-initiated studies, independent studies and national joint registries.

According to analysis, the ATTUNE Knee has thus far demonstrated favorable survivorship, improved patient reported outcomes vs. other knee systems and potential economic benefits, such as 39% lower odds of patient discharge to a skilled nursing facility when implanted with ATTUNE vs. a Triathlon® Knee.
