Exactech has obtained 510(k) clearance for its TriVerse primary knee replacement system from the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
The new primary knee system has been designed to provide cruciate retaining, anterior stabilised and posterior stabilised constructs.
It is intended to offer similar surgical performance in both surgery centres and hospitals.
The TriVerse primary knee replacement system adds to Exactech’s knee solutions portfolio, which includes primary and revision implants and instruments as well as the company’s balanced knee system and completely integrated Guided Personalized Surgery (GPS) platform.
The company stated that the insert bearings for the TriVerse knee system will be available in highly crosslinked vitamin E-stabilised polyethylene only.
Exactech chief marketing officer and large joints senior vice-president Adam Hayden said: “The TriVerse primary knee system is positioned to be a powerful addition to Exactech’s portfolio that leverages proven design principles and data from hundreds of thousands of total knee replacement patients.
