Gainesville, Florida–based Exactech designed the humeral reconstruction prosthesis with intraoperative flexibility and patient-specific sizing to offer a number of options for achieving stability regardless of proximal humeral resection length.
According to a news release, the platform is the first modular device available in the U.S. for significant proximal humeral bone loss and reconstruction after tumor resections. It is used in primary or revision arthroplasty procedures as well as anatomic oncology procedures.
The humeral reconstruction prosthesis, which Exactech first introduced in the U.S. in 2015, has been used to treat more than 1,500 patients and has been made available in Italy, France, Spain, Germany and Great Britain.
“At Exactech we challenge our development teams to create products that solve unmet clinical needs, and our humeral reconstruction prosthesis is an innovative solution that was designed to address the most difficult humeral challenges shoulder surgeons face,” Exactech SVP of Extremities Chris Roche said in the release. “Our surgeon and engineering teams are proud to deliver this unique and innovative shoulder solution to the European market.”
