FDA Issues Draft Guidance on Remanufacturing and Discussion Paper Seeking Feedback on Cybersecurity Servicing of Medical Devices

With this in mind, the FDA is issuing today's draft guidance to help clarify whether activities performed on medical devices are likely remanufacturing as well as a discussion paper on cybersecurity servicing of devices.

Paragon 28, Inc. continues to revolutionize the Orthopedic Total Ankle Joint Replacement (TAR) market by successfully introducing the FasTrac Distal Tibia Alignment System, featuring proprietary laser technology developed to provide a precise visual reference point during component alignment, a critical step in establishing optimal implant placement during TAR procedures.

Abnormal alignment of an implant construct is reported to be a major cause of implant loosening and decreased postoperative function. The FasTrac Distal Tibia Alignment System addresses the importance of implant orientation by utilizing the first and only laser alignment verification technology to ultimately guide the surgeon to the desired position.

Dr. Jason Nowak performed the first surgery with Paragon 28’s laser technology in Redding California last week and stated:

“In addition to expediting and visually enhancing alignment, the System streamlines the surgical technique by eliminating the need to insert an additional pin into the tibial tubercle or conducting CT scans that may be necessary for other total ankle alignment techniques.”

FasTrac is the third alignment system offered for the APEX 3D Total Ankle, complementing MAVEN PSI and the Traditional Alignment Guide. Learn more about the FasTrac Distal Tibia Alignment System with Laser Technology here.
