Treace Medical Concepts announced positive results from a retrospective, multicenter study with the Lapiplasty® 3D Bunion Correction™ procedure, evaluating maintenance of 3-plane correction and union rates following early weight-bearing.
The study involved 62 cases in 57 patients. Results revealed that:
- 62 cases met the 1-year endpoint, with an average follow-up of 13.5 months
- Mean time for study patients to start weight-bearing in a boot walker was 10.9 days
- 96.8% of study patients maintained 3-plane bunion correction at one year
- Two out of 62 cases demonstrated radiographic recurrence of the bunion at 13.5 months
Additional studies of the system are underway.
Earlier this month, Treace received FDA clearance to expand indications of Lapiplasty to treat adolescent pediatric patients.
