Zimmer Biomet Holdings, a global leader in musculoskeletal healthcare, is pleased to announce the commercial launch of the Persona Medial Congruent Bearing and OsseoTi Tibial Sleeves for the Vanguard 360 Revision Knee System.
These enhancements to Zimmer Biomet’s Knee portfolio represent the expansion of two of the Company’s flagship knee systems, and combine anatomically inspired designs with cutting-edge advances in implant engineering.
The Persona Medial Congruent Bearing, which complements Persona The Personalized Knee System, is designed to recreate a more natural feeling motion of the human knee by maximizing knee joint stability throughout the full range of motion.
Engineered from studies of the morphology and kinematics of a natural, healthy knee, the Persona Medial Congruent Bearing represents the convergence of Zimmer Biomet’s ultracongruent designs with personalized femoral components.
OsseoTi Tibial Sleeves complement the Vanguard 360 Revision Knee System by addressing a wide range of cavitary defects commonly encountered in revision knee procedures. Based on a typical highly vascularized metaphyseal region1 of the tibia, these sleeves feature Zimmer Biomet’s proprietary OsseoTi porous metal technology, and are designed to distribute the load through biologic fixation from the tibial plateau and stem to loads closer to the joint.
Made of a cutting edge technology by printing the metal and porous structure together, it creates a truly unified three-dimensional porous homogenous construct that mimics cancellous bone architecture and modulus.
OsseoTi Tibial Sleeves offer a wide variety of sizing and positioning options, and can be used separately, together or in conjunction with a block augment. These versatile sleeves are designed to be positioned independently or symmetrically within the tibia, resulting in an effective bone-conserving solution for addressing cavitary defects.
"As the market leader and a pioneer in knee replacement, Zimmer Biomet is absolutely focused on supporting surgeons with a steady cadence of innovative clinical portfolio enhancements that set new standards at every stage of care, including total primary and revision procedures," said Todd Davis, Vice President & General Manager of the global Knee business.
"In keeping with our long heritage of musculoskeletal innovation, these additions to Persona The Personalized Knee System, and the Vanguard 360 Knee Revision System are designed to empower surgeons to deliver personalized outcomes for their patients, while offering compelling clinical and economic value to healthcare systems around the globe."
