DePuy Synthes, part of the Johnson & Johnson Medical Devices Companies, introduced the ACTIS® Total Hip System in the US at the 2018 American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS) Annual Meeting in New Orleans, LA. Recently available on a limited basis, this is the first DePuy Synthes hip system designed to be utilized with tissue-sparing approaches such as the minimally invasive Anterior Approach, as well as traditional approaches in Total Hip Replacement (THR) surgery.
The ACTIS Hip System helps increase stability of the joint immediately after surgery, and is optimized for the Anterior Approach, which helps patients get back on their feet more quickly following surgery with lower dislocation rates compared to other surgical approaches.
By meeting patients’ increasing expectation for returning to function earlier after hip replacement surgery, the ACTIS Hip System supports the need for improved outcomes, better patient satisfaction, and greater value through:
- A stem design that has been shown to improve initial implant stability
- A surgical technique that may enable early patient function1
- Varying stem sizes that help achieve proper fit within the femur to address an increasingly diverse patient population
“The ACTIS Hip System incorporates features such as a medial collar, triple-taper geometry and twelve sizes to allow for a precise anatomical fit,” said Dr. Atul F. Kamath, Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, University of Pennsylvania. “I now have a single system for most patients’ bone types, shapes and anatomic considerations. I have been impressed with the early clinical results, stem fixation on x-rays and patient satisfaction.”
For more than a decade DePuy Synthes has provided surgeons with enabling technologies, education and implants to advance patient care through the Anterior Approach. Recently, two co-marketing agreements were announced for the ME1000® Surgical Impactor—designed to replace the handheld mallet and provide more consistent clinical outcomes and less surgeon fatigue—and JointPoint®—a non-invasive computer navigation system that allows for intraoperative analysis and digital templating—to provide enabling technologies that integrate with the Anterior Approach and may help improve outcomes. Now, with the addition of the ACTIS Hip System, DePuy Synthes continues its commitment to providing products and solutions that allow surgeons to help patients get back to their everyday lives.
