The new Persona OsseoTi Keel Tibia has been designed for cementless knee replacement and represents a new addition to the Persona Knee system platform.
It features a new porous version of the Persona anatomic tibia along with the company’s OsseoTi porous metal technology.
The technology leverages anatomical data along with 3D printing technology to build a structure that mimics the human cancellous (or spongey) bone architecture directly.
Zimmer Biomet stated that the combination of this material with a keeled design will offer stable initial and biological fixation.
Zimmer Biomet chief operating officer Ivan Tornos said: “With an increasing number of surgeons opting for cementless procedures for their patients, we are excited to expand our market-leading Persona Knee portfolio with the Persona OsseoTi Keel Tibia, a versatile and surgeon-centred solution for performing a cementless total knee replacement.
“Adding the Persona OsseoTi Keel Tibia to our well-established and clinically proven Persona Knee System allows surgeons to better address the needs of their patients with a comprehensive single system solution for a cementless or cemented application.”
Persona OsseoTi also includes an anatomic tibia that offers less micromotion and optimal bone coverage, as well as 3D-printed, porous OsseoTi technology for biological fixation.
Additionally, it features a new cemented implant option, which offers surgeons seamless versatility during the procedure.
