A press release by Scandius BioMedical, Inc. informs:
… the Stratis ST ACL Reconstruction System and Femoral Fixation Implant have been launched and successfully used in its initial surgeries since its recent FDA market clearance. The Stratis ST system is used by orthopedic surgeons to repair the single most common sports-related orthopedic joint injury — the reconstruction of the torn ACL (Anterior Cruciate Ligament).
“The Stratis ST system’s design is intuitive, the measurements required are minimal and the instrumentation is designed such that it leads you to a consistent end result each time,” said Jim Vailas, M.D., Bedford Ambulatory Surgery Center, Bedford, NH and Chairman of the Clinical Advisory Board at Scandius. “As I use the Stratis ST system I can see that it will enable me to reduce the amount of time it takes for me to complete ACL repairs.”
By using the Stratis ST system, physicians can address the current
challenges associated with Soft Tissue ACL reconstruction and provide an alternative in an area where advances in arthroscopy are needed by surgeons and patients alike. For instance, the Stratis ST system addresses the desire to achieve aperture fixation in the knee joint and greater compression of the graft in the femoral tunnel. The Stratis ST system enables physicians to overcome obstacles associated with traditional Soft Tissue ACL surgery.
