Exactech Introduces New Computer-Assisted Software Application for Simplified Guidance in Total Knee Replacement


Surgeon Reports Success with First Case Using ExactechGPS TKA PLUS

Exactech, Inc. (Nasdaq: EXAC), a developer and producer of bone and joint restoration products and biologic solutions for extremities, knee and hip, announced the introduction of ExactechGPS® TKA PLUS, a new software application that provides orthopaedic surgeons simplified, real-time intraoperative computer guidance during total knee arthroplasty (TKA). The new application expands the ExactechGPS portfolio and complements the company’s new Truliant® Knee System which is also making its clinical debut this quarter.

Derek Amanatullah, MD, PhD, performed the first surgery using ExactechGPS TKA PLUS at Stanford University Medical Center. “I was delighted to experience how seamlessly the system integrated into my surgical workflow,” he reported. “ExactechGPS TKA PLUS allowed me to use simple guidance to achieve precision and accuracy in my cuts, which made the knee replacement case run smoothly. I believe this system is exactly what surgeons need to help them achieve more reproducible outcomes.”

ExactechGPS is a computer technology system for guided, personalized joint replacement surgery. The new TKA PLUS software application provides surgeons a simple tool to plan, guide and verify key steps of a knee replacement procedure and easily check the patient’s implant alignment. This new application expands the ExactechGPS knee software portfolio, which also includes comprehensive applications for both primary and revision knee surgery.

Joseph Pizzurro, vice president of Knee Marketing at Exactech: “The launch of TKA PLUS reiterates Exactech’s commitment to delivering a fully comprehensive knee system to the marketplace.  He went on to say, “The Truliant system of new implants and instruments, combined with our ExactechGPS technology, offers orthopaedic surgeons versatility in managing total knee arthroplasty cases from primary through revision. We are encouraged by the positive responses we have received and look forward to continued momentum behind our new knee system.”

ExactechGPS has been used in more than 8,500 total knee cases in 12 countries across the globe. ExactechGPS TKA PLUS is available in pilot launch, with full availability expected in 2018.
