AMSTERDAM, The Netherlands, Sept. 12, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Wright Medical Group N.V. (NASDAQ: WMGI) announced it will highlight new innovations at the American Orthopaedic Foot & Ankle Society (AOFAS) 2019 Annual Meeting taking place at the Hyatt Regency Chicago in Chicago, Illinois, from September 12-15, 2019. Wright will feature its full range of lower extremities and biologic solutions at exhibit booth #133, including the Cartiva® synthetic cartilage implant, PROstep™ minimally invasive surgery system, Total Ankle continuum of care and AUGMENT® Injectable bone graft.
Wright Medical also recently completed enrollment in its UK-based post-market INFINITY™ Total Ankle Replacement follow-up study. With 500 patients enrolled across 12 sites in the UK, this marks one of the largest total ankle replacement studies ever conducted. The multicenter, prospective study will evaluate 10-year implant survivorship and outcomes associated with the INFINITY Total Ankle System. Study investigators include 20 non-inventor surgeons led by Mr. David Townshend, MBBS FRCS (Orth), Consultant Orthopedic Surgeon, Northumbria NHS Healthcare Trust, UK.
Robert Palmisano, president and chief executive officer, commented, “We have continued to expand our best-in-class foot and ankle product portfolio to meet the needs of orthopaedic surgeons and patients and further enhance our leadership position in the fast-growing lower extremities and biologics markets. At this year’s AOFAS meeting, a number of presentations and posters will highlight the growing body of compelling clinical evidence for our market leading lower extremities product portfolio, including the Cartiva synthetic cartilage implant, our total ankle replacement product portfolio and AUGMENT bone graft.”
Palmisano continued, “Completing enrollment in our UK post-market INFINITY study is an important milestone for total ankle replacement and represents our ongoing commitment to surgeons and their patients. The data collected by this study will drive the continued evolution of treatment options that improve quality of life for patients suffering from end-stage ankle arthritis. We are especially proud that one poster presentation demonstrated a significant reduction and cessation in post-operative opioid consumption using Wright’s PROstep minimally-invasive surgery products and was recognized as a finalist for the prestigious Roger A. Mann Award, which is given in recognition of the outstanding clinical paper presented at the AOFAS Annual Meeting.”
Wright will feature its full range of lower extremities and biologic solutions at exhibit booth #133, including the following products:
