This promising achievement has been reached in less than 5 years, including the responsible introduction of our innovative system ahead of its full market release, according to the plan of action of the M.O.R.E. Excellence Clinical Program.
The Medacta Shoulder System is a modular solution that features a broad range of options, wide-ranging sizes, adjustable offsets, and innovative designs, both in the anatomic and reverse configuration.The Medacta Shoulder System offering is always in expansion, and it has recently been enriched by a series of new options: stemless anatomic, long humeral diaphysis and SensiTiN™️ hypoallergenic implants which help reduce metal ion release. With the introduction of the new options, the Medacta Shoulder System now offers a complete solution to manage many diverse patient anatomies and pathologies with respect to the humeral side: stemless metaphysis, short stem, standard stem, long stem.
Medacta’s innovation is reflected on the Medacta Shoulder System’s design. Proximal fixation in the standard and short stems is achieved by means of Medacta’s proprietary MectaGrip technology, a plasma-sprayed titanium coating which enhances initial stability due to its high coefficient of friction and potential long-term fixation, in conjunction with hydroxyapatite.
Furthermore, the Medacta Shoulder System offers the valuable flexibility to move from a total to a reverse arthroplasty without the need to revise all the components, enabling surgeons to perform conversions rather than revisions of all prosthesis components.
In order to facilitate an accurate positioning of the implants, Medacta has created MyShoulder®
, a system providing complete 3D preoperative planning and 3D printed patient-specific guides, developed on the basis of the success of Medacta Patient-Matched Technology, which is part of the MySolutions personalized ecosystem.
“With our Shoulder Product Portfolio, we wanted to take another step forward in personalized medicine, creating a complete, convertible, and innovative system, keeping as a priority the benefits for both surgeons and patients. We are proud to have reached the remarkable milestone of 10,000 Shoulder devices implanted worldwide. Medacta’s shoulder offering perfectly fits with Medacta's vision and our sophisticated MySolutions personalized ecosystem, focused on delivering advanced solutions that support the surgeon's care of each patient” says Francesco Siccardi Chief Executive Officer of Medacta International.
The Medacta Shoulder System is also supported by the Medacta M.O.R.E. Institute
, which provides continuous tailored support by means of a solid education network for surgeons as they work towards implementing new technologies. With an international network of expert surgeons, the M.O.R.E. Institute is at the forefront of education for Medacta’s techniques and products, with personalized high-level educational pathways supporting surgeons with focused activities.
Medacta International showcases its latest shoulder surgical innovations at the SECEC-ESSSE Congress on September 15 - 18, 2021, in Poznan, Poland. At booth #9, Medacta presents the Medacta Shoulder System and the MySolutions® Personalized Ecosystem featuring the NextAR Augmented Reality Platform with its Shoulder Application, a new dimension for the implementation of smart delivery tools to significantly impact advanced planning, intraoperative execution, and healthcare sustainability for joint arthroplasty.
