INnate Intramedullary Threaded Nail Milestone: 5,000 Metacarpal Fractures Successfully Treated Reports ExsoMed

IN.PACT AV Drug-Coated Balloon Is First and Only to Show Superior and Sustained Results Through Two Years Compared to PTA in Treating Arteriovenous Fistulae Lesions

The data, which were presented virtually as a podium first at the 2021 Charing Cross Symposium, demonstrated that the IN.PACT™ AV drug-coated balloon (DCB) is the first and only DCB to show sustained and superior effectiveness through two years compared to standard percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) in end-stage renal disease (ESRD) patients with de novo or non-stented restenotic native arteriovenous fistulae (AVF) in the upper extremity.

Martell Diagnostic Laboratories Announces HERTEST: Groundbreaking Way to Detect Effectiveness of Breast Cancer RX Globally

ESPRIT CAM Improves Productivity for Long Part Machining by Automating Multi-spindle Program Creation

ESPRIT CAM: New computer-aided-manufacturing (CAM) technology has been introduced by ESPRIT CAM, part of Hexagon’s Manufacturing Intelligence division that provides manufacturers with the control and flexibility needed to use multi-spindle and multi-channel computer-numerical-control (CNC) machinery for the machining of long parts.

INnate Intramedullary Threaded Nail: To date, 5,000 metacarpal fractures have been successfully treated reports ExsoMed Corporation. This milestone reflects the rapid adoption of ExsoMed’s technology, which is quickly becoming the new standard for metacarpal fracture fixation.

INnate Intramedullary Threaded Nail: INnate is an intramedullary threaded nail designed specifically for minimally invasive fixation of metacarpal fractures. The robust length offering with innovative dual crest height design provides optimal fit within the intramedullary canal to create stable fixation and precise reduction. INnate is the only non-compression option, constructed to avoid shortening of oblique and comminuted fractures, while providing simple fracture stabilization in minutes. All instrumentation is sterile-packed and single-use, for stream-lined use in the operating room.

“The ability to treat metacarpal fractures with INnate and the intramedullary technique has been an incredible value-add to the care of my patients,” said Marc Richard, MD (Duke University Medical Center, Durham, NC). “I have been able to expand my indications for the nails and achieve excellent outcomes. It has become my ‘go-to’ technique for the majority of my operative metacarpal fractures.”

Dr. David Shenassa (Sports Medicine Associates of South Florida, Fort Lauderdale, FL) concurs, stating “INnate is one of those rare products that combines surgeon-friendly, cost effective, and game-changing for our patients. Having a sports-focused surgery center in a very active patient population, I definitely see my fair share of metacarpal fractures.  Recently, I saw a high school senior who was actively being recruited by top NCAA programs for swimming; he sustained two metacarpal fractures during critical U.S. Nationals training. INnate allowed him to get back in the pool to train just three days post-op. Both he and I were very happy with the outcome. He’s now swimming for the University of Michigan.”

“5,000 successful INnate cases is a major achievement for ExsoMed. It further validates our approach in designing and developing innovative products and technologies for hand surgery,” said James Young Kim, ExsoMed’s Managing Director of Global Sales and Marketing. “For too long, innovation has been neglected in the hand surgery space, with subpar outcomes deemed acceptable for arguably the most vital human appendages. ExsoMed is here to change that. We believe our solutions will raise the standard of care in hand surgery by providing surgeons with user-friendly surgical tools that reduce the global cost of care and get patients back to work and daily activities faster.”
