On June 20th, 2019, Exactech’s Truliant Porous knee implants were used for the first time in total knee replacement surgeries. The system was engineered to maximize healing conditions post-surgery. It also offers a 3-D additive manufacturing tibial design, as well as integrated bone screw fixation options which allow for precise manoeuvrability. The system offers an anatomically-designed femoral implant, that contours to bone.
Exactech’s Truliant Total Knee System has won numerous awards. These new porous implants are able to be fully utilized by this new system; enabling a smooth transition during the surgical procedure.
“Exactech is entering the market with an intentional non-cemented platform that has benefited from collective industry knowledge and surgeon input,” Duke said. “Truliant Porous provides a durable bonding surface for long-term interface strength, offering solid fixation for my patients. Fully integrated with the sleek, new Truliant instrumentation, Exactech is delivering another knee product that is ready to succeed.”
The overall U.S. orthopedic large joint device market, which includes hip and knee replacements as well as associated accessories, such as bone cement and cutting blocks, is valued at over $7.6 billion.
