Exactech (NSDQ:EXAC) said today that won Japanese approval for its shoulder, knee and hip replacement systems and that the devices had been recently used in their 1st procedures in the region.
The Gainesville, Fla.-based company said it won regulatory approval to introduce additional products from its 3 segments to the Japanese market, including its Optetrak Logic CR knee system, Novation crown cup acetabular component, Alteon tapered wedge stem and Equinoxe reverse shoulder systems.
The 1st procedures with all of the devices were performed between April 6 and June 5, the company said.
“Exactech has maintained direct distribution in Japan since 2008 with consistent growth. These new product introductions are important milestones for Exactech in one of our key global markets. We are pleased to expand our offerings with these important innovations to better serve surgeons and patients,” int’l sales & marketing dev VP Daniel Berdat said in a press release.
In February, Exactech said it sold off its spine business to ChoiceSpine for an undisclosed amount and plans to restructure its biologics business.
