Howmedica Osteonics Corporation Key Developments

Stryker Receives FDA Clearance for Mako Total Knee Application

Stryker Orthopaedics announced that its 510(k) submission for the Mako total knee application has received market clearance by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. This clearance expands Stryker's current Mako offering of partial knee and total hip applications to provide a comprehensive solution in the robotic reconstructive service line. With the clearance of the total knee application, Stryker is preparing to initiate a limited market release by year end.

Stryker Launches Advanced Robotic-Arm Assisted Total Hip Application

Stryker Orthopaedics announced at the 2015 American Academy of Orthopaedics the regulatory clearance of an advanced robotic-arm assisted total hip arthroplasty application for use with its Mako system. Complementing the surgical approach of choice, the Mako System will be compatible with a surgeon's Stryker implant of choice. Stryker's Accolade II®, Secur-Fit® Advanced, Anato and Exeter® femoral implants coupled with the Trident® Acetabular System and its precisely engineered X3® polyethylene provide surgeons with the performance of Stryker's implant designs. A recent study found that manual acetabular cup placement fell within the acceptable safe range only 50% of the time. Robotic-arm assisted total hip arthroplasty has been shown to provide excellent accuracy and precision with regard to planned cup position, leg length, and offset.

The Agreement provides for an initial four year exclusive term, commencing on the date of Stryker's initial commercial sale. The term may be extended by Stryker for an additional exclusive period of four and /or non-exclusive period of two years.

These additional fees are reduced on a sliding scale if Stryker meets certain revenue thresholds during the term then ending, or if revenue goals are not met as a result of Osiris not fulfilling its supply obligations.
