Exactech this week announced that it has expanded its Truliant total knee system with a porous-coated implant option.
Gainesville, Fla.–based Exactech designed Truliant for strength and stability for patients, and efficiency for surgeons and operating room staff.
“Exactech’s Truliant Porous Knee embodies state-of-the-art technology, manufacturing and instrumentation allowing surgeons to confidently address our ever-changing patient populations,” James Duke of the Orthopedic Institute in Ocala, Fla. said in a news release. “I believe surgeons looking to maximize longevity, performance and durability in their implants will want to utilize Exactech’s Truliant Porous Knee technology to best handle surgical challenges and patient expectations.”
The porous design of Truliant is designed to mimic the trabecular nature of cancellous bone with optimal pore size and porosity, according to the company. The porous structures facilitate a durable bonding surface to allow for immediate and long-term biological fixation. Its peripheral pegs also allow for stable initial fixation.
Truliant can be integrated into Exactech’s instrumentation and ExactechGPS TKA Pro application for a guided, personalized experience. The total knee system include cruciate-retaining and posterior-stabilized implants, constrained insert options and integrates with a fully comprehensive revision system that has metaphyseal cones, stems, tibial augments and offsets.
The Truliant porous knee system is available in the U.S.
