Medacta Expands its Hip and Shoulder Portfolio with M-Vizion Hip Femoral Modular Revision System and Long Humeral Diaphysis

CASTEL SAN PIETRO, 12 May 2020 - Medacta announced today it has received clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for its M-Vizion Femoral Revision System Extension for hip arthroplasty and its Long Humeral Diaphysis for shoulder joint replacement.

'Medacta is constantly looking to expand our product offerings to better respond to patient needs. With our products we want to make surgeons more confident in the operating room and contribute to an enhanced patient experience,' said Francesco Siccardi, CEO of Medacta. 'As we continue to expand our product portfolio, we are committed to delivering solutions that can help optimize surgery, while minimizing recovery time and maximizing implant longevity.'

M-Vizion Femoral Modular Revision System: New Options in Hip Revision Arthroplasty
These new products, part of Medacta's Revision Platform, further expand the Medacta Hip offering, adding a broader range of options to the M-Vizion Modular Stem. The educational offering on revision hip replacement is also expanding in parallel with the product portfolio. With an international network of Experts Surgeons, the M.O.R.E. Institute is leading education of revision techniques. Surgeons can master these techniques through the M.O.R.E. Institute's personalized high-level educational pathways.

Long Humeral Diaphysis: More Options for Complex Cases in Shoulder Replacement
The Long Humeral Diaphysis is indicated for shoulder replacement in complex cases or where there is a need for extended distal fixation. The implant, which is available in two lengths to accommodate patient needs, further expands the Medacta Shoulder System offering. With the Long Humeral Diaphysis, the Medacta Shoulder System is increasingly complete with a comprehensive range of short, standard and long stems. The Long Humeral Diaphysis will be introduced into the market in selected centers following the guidelines of Medacta's M.O.R.E. Excellence Clinical Program, a structured process that defines the steps and milestones that are integral to a safe introduction of new Medacta devices.

Important Milestones in a Challenging Period
The FDA clearance for the M-Vizion range extension and the Long Humeral Diaphysis is an important milestone, particularly considering the difficult period which the market is facing due to the Covid-19 impact. Medacta offices have quickly adapted to this new scenario. This successful FDA clearance has been possible thanks to the synergy of the Medacta organization, which has remained continually operational, resilient, and committed to the support of surgeons and patients worldwide.
