The company’s two new innovations build on Attune’s kinematic features that include Gradius Curve and Glideright Articulation. Both knee additions work seamlessly with DePuy Synthes’ Velys robotic-assisted surgical system.
“Through our DePuy Synthes knee solutions, we’re revolutionizing the traditional approach to total knee arthroplasty by offering patients a tailored surgical experience based on the combination of our kinematically advanced implants, our differentiated digital technology, and patient-specific techniques,” Juston Gates, worldwide VP of knee reconstruction for DePuy Synthes, said in a news release. “We believe that this combination can lead to knee restoration and with it, we envision a future of better outcomes and improved patient satisfaction.”
Attune Cementless Fixed Bearing knee is designed with Affixium 3DP technology and is 3D printed for more active patients for whom biological fixation is more effective. DePuy Synthes’ Affixium knee creates a three-dimensional lattice structure to enable a similar porosity to natural bone for advanced biological fixation to enhance initial implant stability, according to the company.
“The Attune Affixium Knee is a game-changer for patients,” said Dr. Ryan Nunley, an orthopedic surgeon in St. Louis, Missouri and paid consultant of an affiliate of DePuy Synthes. “The porous nature more naturally represents bone structure, which I believe helps with initial implant stability. Cementless fixation is growing quickly, and this is a phenomenal opportunity for advancing patient care.”
DePuy Synthes’ Attune Medial Stabilized knee system incorporates asymmetric anatomic inserts with a raised medial lip for medial stability and has TruARC Lateral Path for natural knee functions. The system addresses posterior cruciate ligament management and surgical philosophies. The medial stabilized system combines Attune Gradius Curve and LogicLock Tibial base to restore natural knee kinematics.
“We are truly entering the next phase in knee replacement surgery – knee restoration,” said Dr. Jonathan Vigdorchik, an orthopedic surgeon in New York and paid consultant of an affiliate of DePuy Synthes. “The Attune Medial Stabilized Knee system is the perfect complement to the Attune Knee platform and provides my patients with the medial conformity and lateral rollback that I want so that their knee feels more natural.”
