PLAINSBORO, N.J., Nov. 20, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Integra LifeSciences Holdings Corporation (Nasdaq:IART), a leading global medical technology company, today announced one of the first surgeries with the Integra® XT Revision Total Ankle Replacement System.
“Integra’s new total ankle revision system is designed to provide surgeons with stable tibial fixation through a narrow, finned tibia. I appreciate the anterior surgical approach, which is mindful of the blood supply,” said Dr. Christopher Ritter, a foot and ankle surgeon in Buffalo, New York. “I have performed several revision procedures with the XT Revision System and found that it is easy to implant and provides stable fixation. My patients are happy with their early outcomes.”
The Integra XT Revision Total Ankle Replacement System is one of the first FDA cleared devices indicated for revision ankle arthroplasty only and can be used to revise any commercially available primary total ankle replacement system. Key implant features include:
- An augmented posterior sloped talus which addresses subsidence by rebuilding posterior talar height.
- An anatomic design that mimics the natural kinematics of the ankle, designed to promote a more normal gait and better overall function post-operatively.
“The launch of the Integra XT Revision Total Ankle Replacement System represents Integra’s commitment to further advance ankle arthroplasty solutions,” said Robert T. Davis, Jr., corporate vice president and president, Orthopedics and Tissue Technologies. “Many of our surgeons have expressed their excitement for the XT system and our approach for ankle revision surgery. With this addition to our ankle reconstruction portfolio, Integra now offers comprehensive care for end-stage ankle arthritis patients.”
The Integra XT Revision Total Ankle Replacement System was developed in partnership with five world leading foot and ankle surgeons – Dr. Michel Bonnin, (Lyon, France), Dr. Chris Coetzee (Eagan, Minnesota), Dr. Jean Alain Colombier (Toulouse, France), Thierry Judet, PhD (Paris, France), and Dr. Mark Myerson (Baltimore, Maryland). It is available in the U.S. through Integra’s Extremity Orthopedics sales team.
