Truliant Porous is a non-cemented implant system that Exactech said is designed for reproducibility and efficiency in total knee arthroplasty.
Truliant Porous is designed to reduce micromotion and aid potential bony in-growth, according to the company. The system features a unique 3D additive manufacturing tibial design developed to mimic the trabecular nature of cancellous bone with optimal pore size and porosity characteristics. Truliant Porous also includes a combination of porous pegs and a channeled keel with flutes that are designed to increase bony-implant engagement and micromotion resistance, the company said. The integrated bone screw fixation options allow for intra-operative stability.
“The tibial preparation is very straightforward with the Truliant instrumentation,” said Dr. Kyle Swanson of Hutchinson Area Health Care in Mankato, Minn., who did one of the procedures. “I was able to feel the stability from the combination of the tray’s porous structure and design features immediately during implant impaction.”
“The new porous options are fully integrated with the Truliant Total Knee System, which allows for a seamless transition and eliminates any required workflow or instrument changes,” added Exactech VP of knee marketing Joseph Pizzurro in a news release. “This launch should be welcomed news for orthopaedic surgeons who prefer a non-cemented approach for total knee arthroplasty.”
Truliant Porous is in a limited launch with full U.S. market availability expected in early 2020.
