Exactech, a renowned developer of cutting-edge technologies and implants for joint replacement surgery, has unveiled its latest breakthrough innovation, the TriVerse™ primary knee system. This pioneering system is meticulously crafted to cater to the growing needs of active knee replacement patients, delivering a streamlined and efficient surgical solution. The initial TriVerse knee surgeries were successfully performed by esteemed orthopedic surgeons, namely Dr. Chris Christensen from Bluegrass Orthopaedics in Lexington, Kentucky, and Dr. David Taunton, Jr. from Texas Orthopedic Specialists in Bedford, Texas.
Dr. Christensen, who frequently operates in high-volume surgical environments, emphasized the paramount significance of efficiency and adaptability for both himself and his operating room team. He commended the TriVerse Knee system for its straightforwardness and its comprehensive array of primary knee implants, combining simplicity with versatility seamlessly.
Dr. Taunton also expressed his enthusiasm for the TriVerse system, highlighting its reliance on the successful clinical legacy of previous knee systems. This design streamlines surgical procedures and aligns with patients' preferences for same-day surgery, perfectly suiting their active lifestyles.
The TriVerse primary knee system offers a range of constructs, including anterior stabilized and posterior stabilized variants, exclusively designed with highly crosslinked vitamin E polyethylene. It also comes equipped with a comprehensive set of mechanical instruments, thoughtfully tailored to enhance efficiency in same-day surgical settings.
Adam Hayden, Chief Medical Officer and Senior Vice President of the Large Joints Business Unit at Exactech, underscored how TriVerse expands the company's portfolio of innovative knee solutions. It serves as a valuable addition to their existing roster of advanced knee solutions, which includes the award-winning Truliant® primary and revision systems and the integrated Newton® ligament balancing platform.
