Wednesday, July 05, 2023

Medacta Group S.A. (SIX: MOVE) is pleased to announce the successful completion of the first MyPAO surgeries in Europe. The company specializes in innovative, personalized, and sustainable solutions for joint replacement, sports medicine, and spine surgeries. Leveraging Medacta's extensive experience in CT-based planning, the MyPAO platform expands the range of patient-matched solutions for hip preservation procedures.

The MyPAO platform, developed in collaboration with expert surgeons, is a complete and innovative system based on patient-matched technology. It provides assistance to surgeons during periacetabular osteotomy procedures.

Components of the MyPAO Platform include a CT-based 3D preoperative planning report, 3D preoperative and postoperative bone models, cortical screws, and patient-specific realignment guides. These elements assist in the realignment of the acetabular fragment during periacetabular osteotomies.

Dr. med. Panayiotis Christofilopoulos from Hôpital de La Tour (Meyrin, Geneva) praises the surgical planning report of MyPAO. The report allows for a comprehensive visualization of all relevant preoperative parameters at a glance. Additionally, the 3D coverage section of the report, along with 3D printed pre-op and post-op bone models, offers a complete overview of the expected realignment.

The MyPAO surgical planning report provides all the necessary preoperative parameters and proposes a plan for acetabulum realignment, including a simulation of postoperative parameters.

Dr. Michel Rahmé from Rhéna Clinique de Strasbourg appreciates the patient-specific guides of MyPAO. These guides facilitate precise acetabulum realignment after osteotomies using the surgeon's preferred technique. Unlike conventional procedures, MyPAO guides enable faster and more precise corrections, reduce X-ray exposure, and replicate the preoperative planning. The guides are designed to fit securely on the patient's bones, ensuring safe and easy positioning.

MyPAO is part of the MySolutions Personalized Ecosystem, an advanced network of digital solutions using cutting-edge technologies to enhance patient outcomes, healthcare efficiency, and sustainability.

The M.O.R.E. Institute provides comprehensive educational offerings to support MyPAO. With a network of expert surgeons, the M.O.R.E. Institute remains dedicated to educating on sports medicine procedures and products, offering personalized educational pathways. Medacta ensures that surgeons have the necessary support when adopting new technologies.
