Kalamazoo, Michigan-based Stryker designed its Prophecy Infinity guides to offer ways for surgeons to improve operating room efficiency by reducing potentially time-consuming interoperative steps throughout a streamlined surgical process, according to a news release.
Prophecy Infinity provides fewer steps in total ankle replacement surgeries compared to the Prophecy standard pin-through technique. The system increases OR efficiency by using just one guide for both drilling and cutting, reducing the number of steps in a patient’s surgical plan, Stryker said.
The company noted that the platform’s metal guides maintain cutting stability and optional holes can couple alignment for the talus. The system also offers improved fluoroscopic visualization to help view coronal alignment, positioning and implant size all in one shot.
“The new Prophecy Infinity resect-through guides system builds on the product line’s legacy of success in the foot and ankle market,” VP of Marketing & Medical Education for Stryker’s Foot & Ankle business Michael Rankin said in the release. “After 35,000 cases planned over the last nine years, the latest offering in the Prophecy system continues to push innovation that will advance ease-of-use and accuracy in the operating room.”
