GMK Sphere awarded 5A ODEP rating, confirming excellent survival rate of the implant

Medacta’s commitment to providing innovative and safe products is coming to fruition! According to the Orthopaedic Data Evaluation Panel (ODEP) rating criteria, Medacta’s GMK Sphere knee has been evaluated in a minimum cohort of 250 knees at 5 years, demonstrating Kaplan-Meier survivorship data in line with the highest ODEP standards for total knee arthroplasty.

Please note that the ODEP rating is not awarded based only on a specific study (with selected surgeons), but from nationwide data of English and Welsh hospitals. GMK Sphere revision rate is in line with the requirements for 5A* ODEP rating. However, the number of patients at 5-year follow up included in the analysis is still not sufficient to achieve this rating.
 
The GMK Sphere results are on the right track to be awarded the highest ODEP rating of 13A*!
