The Memphis, Tenn.-based company touted the Prophecy preoperative navigation system as the first such system with patient specific instrumentation designed for ankle revision arthroplasty procedures.
“Revision of a failed total ankle arthroplasty remains a challenge. The ability to preoperatively plan out these cases and determine appropriate alignment based on the individual patient’s CT data will provide surgeons with an extra level of confidence that the implants will be positioned in the optimal alignment,” Dr. William McGarvey of the University of Texas Health Science Center said in prepared remarks.
Wright Medical said the Prophecy system won initial approval in 2012, and has been shown in clinical trials to help surgeons align ankle replacements, increase surgical efficiency and reduce operating room time and potentially reduce cost.
“The Invision Total Ankle Revision System with Prophecy Preoperative Navigation builds on Wright Medical’s commitment to providing physicians with innovative tools that lead to the best possible patient outcomes. Total ankle arthroplasties provide a unique set of challenges for our physicians and we are excited to be bringing this technology to market to see its success in action. The launch of Invision with Prophecy expands our leadership in total ankle technology and marks our ability to best address the total ankle replacement continuum of care,” prez & CEO Robert Palmisano said in a press release.
Earlier this month, KFx Medical said it and Wright Medical agreed to dismiss patent litigation over rotator cuff repair patents between the companies and ink a licensing deal.
