Anika to Debut Joint Preservation Portfolio at the 2021 AAOS Annual Meeting
“We’re very excited to be part of the 2021 AAOS Annual Meeting, our first as the new Anika,” said
Anika will be featuring the anatomic OVOMotion with Inlay Glenoid Total Shoulder Arthroplasty System, a compelling choice for patients who suffer from glenohumeral osteoarthritis. This bone sparing total shoulder system features a stemless humeral implant design requiring minimal bone removal compared to a traditional stemmed total shoulder replacement, a non-spherical humeral head matching the native patient anatomy more closely than other products and is the only system which offers a true inlay glenoid component design intended to address glenoid loosening and overstuffing. Published test data demonstrates no loosening of the inlay glenoid after 4,000 cycles, whereas all onlay designs tested were clinically loose after approximately 1,100 cycles1. The clinical data surrounding this flagship shoulder system is mounting as well, as recent publications demonstrate the restoration of natural movement of the shoulder in elite athletes, the recentering of the glenohumeral joint, high rates of patient satisfaction, functional results for glenoids across advanced stages of disease and erosion, and excellent pain relief and implant survivorship2,3,4. The result for patients is a true recentering of the joint and more natural movement of the shoulder, the ability to remain active with fewer post-operative restrictions, and the opportunity to live their life pain free.
Another featured technology will be Tactoset, a key growth driver within the regenerative solutions portfolio. Tactoset is a calcium phosphate based, hyaluronic acid (HA)-enhanced injectable bone graft substitute, and it is intended for treating painful insufficiency fractures and other skeletal defects not intrinsic to the stability of bony structure. This biocompatible, osteoconductive bone graft substitute is highly flowable, interdigitates into the trabecular bone architecture, is easily injectable and settable, and has improved handling characteristics compared to other competitive products. A recent Tactoset study published in the
Also on display will be the company’s most recent innovation, WristMotion® Total Wrist Arthroplasty System, on track for a full US market release at the
Anika’s full joint preservation portfolio, including products that leverage the company’s exciting HA technologies, Cingal® and Hyalofast®, will be on display. Cingal is the first HA-based viscosupplement combined with a fast-acting steroid to treat osteoarthritis pain. Hyalofast is Anika’s proprietary HA-based, off-the-shelf, single stage cartilage regeneration scaffold. Both Cingal and Hyalofast are approved and available only outside
There will be multiple opportunities throughout the 2021 AAOS Annual Meeting in
