OrthoSensor, Inc. Announces One-Year Results of VERASENSE Multicenter Evaluation
Mar 12 14
OrthoSensor, Inc. announced that one-year results of the VERASENSE Multicenter Evaluation were first presented during the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS) 2014 Annual Meeting in New Orleans, LA. Details of the one-year clinical outcomes presentation included: At one year, the average total KSS score of balanced patients exceeded that of unbalanced patients by 23.3 points (P<0.001); 179+/-17.2 and 156+/-23.4 for the balanced and unbalanced groups, respectively. The balanced group average score for KSS pain and function were 96.4 and 82.4 respectively; the unbalanced group scored 87.8 and 68.3 points for pain and function. The disparity between the balanced and unbalanced patients' pain and function scores were highly statistically significant (P<0.001, P=0.022). The balanced group averaged 8 points greater improvement in WOMAC scores than the unbalanced group (10+/-11.8 and 18+/-17 for balanced and unbalanced patients, respectively). It is important to note that the WOMAC is scored with an inverse scale; lower scores indicate more improvement. The balanced group's average activity level score was 48.6, which corresponds with the light to moderate labor categories (tennis, light jogging, heavy yard work). The unbalanced patient's average activity level score was 26.7, which corresponds to the upper limits of the semi-sedentary range (light housework, walking for limited distances). The difference between the average scores was also statistically significant (P=0.015).
Smith & Nephew and OrthoSensor to Co-Market VERASENSE(TM) Sensor Assisted Surgery with JOURNEY(TM) II and LEGION(TM) Total Knee Replacements
Mar 10 14
Smith & Nephew and OrthoSensor announced an agreement that will enable surgeons to benefit from OrthoSensor's VERASENSE Sensor Assisted Surgery Technology for soft tissue balancing when implanting Smith & Nephew's JOURNEY(TM) II and LEGION(TM) Total Knee Systems. VERASENSE utilizes advanced sensor technologies to enable evidence-based surgical decisions regarding component position, limb alignment and soft tissue balance to optimize outcomes in total knee replacement. Research shows that patients whose knees have been balanced with the VERASENSE Knee System report less pain and experience greater improvements in function, activity levels and satisfaction post-operatively. Historically, soft tissue balancing has been accomplished by subjective surgeon feel. The VERASENSE Knee System now provides surgeons with real-time, quantitative data that enables evidence-based, intraoperative decisions regarding component position, limb alignment and soft tissue releases to achieve balance and stability through a full range of motion. At one-year, 97% of patients whose knees were quantifiably balanced using the VERASENSE Knee System said they were 'satisfied' to 'very satisfied' with the outcome of their total knee arthroplasty (TKA), a marked improvement over the average 81% satisfaction reported in literature.
