Press Releases - Arthrex.com http://www.vegasbailbondcompanies.com/newsroom/arthrex-news/press-releases Press Releases en webmaster@arthrex.com Tue, 28 Jul 2020 08:04:25 GMT Tue, 28 Jul 2020 08:04:25 GMT Arthrex.com 60 Arthrex Invests in Employee Health, Safety with High-Tech Disinfectant Systems <p>NAPLES, FL &ndash; May 8, 2020 &ndash;&nbsp;Arthrex is further demonstrating its commitment to the health and safety of all employees with investments in high-tech workplace disinfectant technology. As COVID-19 progressed, Arthrex proactively installed state-of-the-art sanitization systems in its facilities around the world to help ensure all team members and visitors work in the healthiest possible environment. This has resulted in no reports by any U.S employees of contracting COVID-19 from other employees or visitors in the company&rsquo;s facilities to-date.</p> <p>Synexis&trade; Microbial Reduction Systems are cutting-edge disinfectant systems that kill airborne and surface bacteria and viruses. This has enabled Arthrex employees to continue supplying essential products to health care professionals around the world. Additionally, as many hospitals and ambulatory surgery centers resume elective surgeries. Arthrex is well-positioned with inventory to provide all products needed to satisfy the backlog of cases.</p> <p>&ldquo;Arthrex is dedicated to the health and well-being of all who enter our facilities. Our goal with these investments in disinfectant technology is to create work environments where our employees and visitors can feel safe and focus on delivering the most innovative products and medical education experiences,&rdquo; said David Bumpous, Arthrex senior director of operations.</p> <p><strong>Synexis technology is proven to kill airborne and surface bacteria and viruses in buildings </strong>using a low level of dry gaseous hydrogen peroxide, a potent antimicrobial agent. The system continuously produces and distributes it throughout buildings to disinfect even hard-to-reach places. The continuous distribution of dry hydrogen peroxide drastically reduces levels of bacteria, fungi and viruses throughout the treated area. Hydrogen peroxide is naturally present in the body&rsquo;s immune system, especially in the lungs, which means the Synexis system is safe for use in occupied spaces and does not require specific action from those working in treated areas.</p> <p>The Synexis systems have proven so effective in sanitizing workplace spaces, Arthrex has expanded the investment to the Innovation Hotel. The 169-room facility, located on Arthrex&rsquo;s Naples campus, opened earlier this year as an immersive educational experience for health care professionals participating in Arthrex&rsquo;s comprehensive medical education programming. Innovation currently uses Synexis machines in common areas and the planned expansion would extend the system to guest rooms.</p> <p>Arthrex has also incorporated an air filtration system into its new global headquarters building, Arthrex One, that uses ultraviolet (UV) light to kill unwanted microorganisms. In addition to the UV lights, a silver ion antimicrobial paint covers the interior surface of the air handling units. The combination of UV light and silver ion protects against mold, fungus and microbial growth within the building&rsquo;s vents. Together the Synexis and UV light filtration systems work to make Arthrex facilities safe places to work and visit.</p> <p>Please contact Lisa Gardiner, senior communications manager, at <a href="mailto:Lisa.Gardiner@arthrex.com">Lisa.Gardiner@arthrex.com</a> with any additional questions.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>About Arthrex</strong><br />Arthrex Inc., headquartered in Naples, FL, is a global leader in orthopedic surgical device design, research, manufacturing and medical education.

The Eclipse system is a novel, less invasive, bone-preserving total shoulder replacement that has been clinically proven in Europe and Canada with more than 20,000 successful implantations over the past 14 years.</p> <p>The Eclipse system was the first total shoulder implant to replace traditional long stem fixation with short, fenestrated cage screw fixation for bone ingrowth, eliminating the need for bone cement. Its success as a total shoulder replacement has been demonstrated by outstanding long-term clinical results for the treatment of shoulder arthritis.</p> <p>&ldquo;The unique design of the Eclipse implant with compressive cage screw fixation and a critical cortex-engaging trunnion, thereby reducing stress shielding commonly seen in stemless arthroplasty, is bone preserving compared to all other available stemless and traditional stemmed implants,&rdquo; said Arthrex Vice President of Strategic Development Larry Higgins, MD. &ldquo;The Eclipse system allows for patient-specific replacement, independent of humeral anatomy with a wide array of implant sizes for all patients.&rdquo;&nbsp;</p> <p>With streamlined instrumentation and a simple surgical technique, the Eclipse Total Shoulder Replacement System decreases operating room time yielding a lower infection rate, reduces bone removal, and improves shoulder function, enabling an easier, less invasive, bone-preserving revision compared to traditional stemmed total shoulder arthroplasty.<sup>1,2,3 </sup></p> <p>The Eclipse surgical technique is complemented by preoperative planning and patient-specific anatomic device placement using the Arthrex Virtual Implant Positioning (VIP) System, an innovative CT imaging-based program utilizing personalized patient surgical guides allowing for a more accurate and reproducible technique in the operating room, which may result in improved postoperative patient outcomes.<sup>4</sup></p> <p>Watch a patient experience video <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7MZK8Xt--KE" target="_blank" rel="noopener">here</a> or search Eclipse at&nbsp;<a href="http://Arthrex.com" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Arthrex.com</a> for additional information.</p> <p><strong>About Arthrex</strong></p> <p>Arthrex Inc., headquartered in Naples, FL, is a global leader in orthopedic surgical device design, research, manufacturing and medical education.

Lisa.Gardiner@Arthrex.com<strong><br><br><br><br>Arthrex Releases Univers&nbsp;Revers?&nbsp;Shoulder Arthroplasty System in the United States<br></strong><em>First Surgery Successfully Performed in Chillicothe, OH<br></em><strong><br><em></em></strong>NAPLES, FL – June 14, 2013 – Arthrex has released its innovative Univers Revers Shoulder Arthroplasty System in the United States, and the first surgery was successfully performed this week by Brian S. Cohen, M.D. in Chillicothe, OH.&nbsp; This is following clearance of the system by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration on May 31, 2013.&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; <br><br>“The recent FDA clearance of the Arthrex Univers Revers Shoulder Arthroplasty System is another testimony to Arthrex’s continuous innovation in helping surgeons treat their patients better,” said Reinhold Schmieding, Arthrex President and Founder.&nbsp; “We applaud our creative engineers, tenacious regulatory affairs management and dedicated consulting surgeons worldwide for this significant achievement in orthopaedic surgery.” &nbsp; <br><span><br>A reverse shoulder replacement is a beneficial option for patients with large rotator cuff tears who have developed a complex type of shoulder arthritis called “cuff tear arthropathy.”&nbsp; In a conventional total shoulder replacement, which is commonly performed to treat shoulder arthritis, the implant device replicates the normal anatomy of the shoulder.&nbsp; (A plastic “cup” is fitted into the shoulder socket – or glenoid – and a metal ball is attached to the top of the upper arm bone – or humerus.)&nbsp; However, in a reverse shoulder replacement, the socket and metal ball are switched.&nbsp; The metal ball is fixed to the socket and the plastic cup is fixed to the upper end of the humerus.</span> &nbsp; <br><span><br>A reverse shoulder replacement may result in less pain and improved range of motion for people with cuff tear arthropathy because it relies on different muscles to move the arm.&nbsp; In a healthy shoulder, the rotator cuff muscles help position and power the arm during range of motion.&nbsp; A conventional total shoulder replacement device also uses the rotator cuff muscles to function properly.&nbsp; However, in a patient with a large, irreparable rotator cuff tear and cuff tear arthropathy, these muscles no longer function.&nbsp; The reverse shoulder replacement relies on the deltoid muscle, instead of the rotator cuff, to power and position the arm.<br><br></span>Reverse shoulder replacement surgery was introduced in the United States in 2004.&nbsp; However, Arthrex’s newly-released system incorporates unique and clinically appropriate features that further advance arthroplasty implant technology.&nbsp; According to Dr. Cohen, “The Arthrex Univers Revers Shoulder Arthroplasty System offers important clinical options such as a variable neck angle of 135 degrees and 155 degrees and a humeral press-fit component, which have not been previously available to surgeons in one system on the market today.” &nbsp; &nbsp; <br><span><br>The variable neck angle allows the surgeon to match the patient’s clinically-specific issues with an appropriate humeral reconstruction.&nbsp; (In certain clinical situations, the 135 degree angle may allow patients more motion, while the 155 degree angle may provide more stability.)&nbsp; In addition, the humeral press-fit component allows the patient’s bone to heal to the component and gives it a stronger, longer lasting bond over time.</span> &nbsp; <span>&nbsp;<br><br>“The Arthrex Univers Revers Shoulder Arthroplasty System was designed to address both the routine and complex conditions of the rotator cuff deficient shoulder, said Anthony Romeo, M.D., a sports medicine, elbow and shoulder orthopaedic surgeon in Chicago, IL and a lead member of the Univers Revers design team.&nbsp; “The innovative design and multiple options for reconstruction were developed after careful consideration of the many issues faced by surgeons in treating these patients.&nbsp; Every effort was made to make the system ‘surgeon-friendly’ and intuitive, improving our ability to help our patients achieve successful outcomes.”</span> &nbsp; <br><br>Arthrex’s Univers Revers Shoulder Arthroplasty System has been utilized in Europe since 2012, with over 500 prostheses implanted to date. &nbsp; <br><span><br>Arthrex, headquartered in Naples, FL, is a global leader in orthopaedic product development and medical education for orthopaedic surgeons.&nbsp; More than 7,500 products for arthroscopic and minimally invasive orthopaedic surgical procedures have been developed by Arthrex and are currently marketed worldwide.&nbsp; For more information, visit <a target="_blank" rel="nofollow" href="http://www.vegasbailbondcompanies.com/">www.vegasbailbondcompanies.com</a>.</span> &nbsp; <br><span><br>###</span> http://www.vegasbailbondcompanies.com/newsroom/arthrex-news/press-releases/2013/06/14/arthrex-releases-univers-revers-shoulder-arthroplasty-system-in-the-united-states-first-surgery-successfully-performed-in-chillicothe-oh Lisa Gardiner Arthrex Enhances SynergyHD3 Endoscopic Visualization System with Innovative Web-Based Software Platform <strong>FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE<br><br></strong><strong></strong>Contact: &nbsp;Lisa Gardiner, Communications Manager<span>&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; <br>&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;&nbsp;239-643-5553 ?

Synergy.net further expands the functionality of Arthrex’s groundbreaking SynergyHD3 System, and provides a unique and powerful set of tools to increase surgeon and OR efficiency, enhance patient satisfaction and significantly reduce rapidly-rising infrastructure costs for hospitals and surgery centers.&nbsp; &nbsp; <br><span><br>“Patient satisfaction and decreasing costs are the top two priorities in a recent survey of Hospital CEOs by Healthcare Leaders,” said Steve Jones, Director of Business Development at Arthrex.&nbsp; “Synergy.net expands on the capabilities of the SynergyHD3 System and includes several features to address both of these priorities.” </span> &nbsp; <br><span><br>One year ago, Arthrex revolutionized the global endoscopic market with the introduction of the SynergyHD3 System – new technology that represented a significant departure from what had been available for many years.&nbsp; This revolutionary system integrates three components -- the latest technology in high definition cameras, LED lighting and an image management system -- into one console with an intuitive tablet interface that networks the components together and greatly simplifies use.&nbsp; With one push of a button, the system is activated and fully loaded with the surgeon’s individual preferences and surgical case information. &nbsp;&nbsp;</span> &nbsp; <br><span><br>SynergyHD3 also includes the Synergy Surgeon iPad application.&nbsp; Utilizing an iPad, surgeons can review, edit, and annotate stills and video recordings that are immediately downloaded from the SynergyHD3 System.&nbsp; The system includes one of the most robust tools for HIPAA compliance on the market, and in many cases, surgeons are choosing to discontinue printing and use the application to create customizable documents and transmit educational postoperative reports to patients electronically.<br><br></span>The introduction of Synergy.net further expands the functionality of the SynergyHD3 System and optimizes OR integration in a simplified, high-tech and cost-effective way through the power of the Web.&nbsp; Synergy.net provides the following components and capabilities: &nbsp; <br><ul><li><strong>OR Command (ORC)</strong>&nbsp;</li></ul>&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; --OR Scheduler (ORS) - allows viewing, editing and overall management of the surgical schedule from any authorized computer or mobile device<br>&nbsp;

Schmieding, General Counsel<br>&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;&nbsp;239-643-5553 ? John.Schmieding@Arthrex.com<br><br><br><h4><strong>Arthrex Victorius in Dismissing $85 Million Verdict</strong></h4><br>NAPLES, FL -- December 19, 2011 -- The Federal District Court in&nbsp;Portland, Oregon reversed an $85 Million jury verdict against Arthrex, Inc. issued in June of this year; dismissing Smith &amp; Nephew, Inc.’s (“S&amp;N”) eight year long pursuit against Arthrex and its SutureTak and PushLock line of suture anchors. These suture anchors are used in arthroscopic shoulder surgery throughout the world. <br><br>The Court held that under the correct construction of the patent, no reasonable jury could possibly find that Arthrex infringed in this case. The Court also held no reasonable jury could have found that Arthrex committed indirect infringement of the patent, vindicating Arthrex in all respects. <br><br>Since the filing of this lawsuit in January 2004, Arthrex has consistently maintained that it did not infringe S&amp;N’s patent. This was the third trial in this case, with the first trial being a mistrial, a verdict for plaintiff in the second trial being reversed by the Court of Appeal for the Federal Circuit in Washington, D.C. and now this third trial’s verdict overturned and Judgment granted for Arthrex. This ruling comes six months after Arthrex won an appeal against S&amp;N which took away a $4.7 million dollar verdict awarded to S&amp;N in the Eastern District of Texas. <br><br>John W. Schmieding, Arthrex’s General Counsel stated: “While we are very pleased with the Judge’s ruling, we are perplexed by S&amp;N’s continued attempt to compete in the courtroom rather than the marketplace. Arthrex would much rather apply its resources towards advancing innovation and life changing technologies.” <br><br>The Court also denied S&amp;N’s request for enhanced damages, for an injunction and willful infringement. Arthrex is hopeful that S&amp;N agrees with this sentiment, will forgo an appeal and move on to more productive pursuits. <br><br>Arthrex, headquartered in Naples, FL, is a worldwide leader in sports medicine product development and educational services for orthopaedic surgeons. More than 6,000 products for arthroscopic and minimally invasive orthopaedic surgical procedures have been developed by Arthrex and are currently marketed worldwide.

Even though four of five claims against Arthrex were dismissed prior to trial, and the claim of willful infringement dismissed by Judge T. John Ward during trial, S&amp;N continued to pursue Arthrex. The Appeal decision wipes away a jury award of $4.7 million and dismisses the entire action against Arthrex.<br><br>“This was a victory for medical innovation and common sense,” said John W. Schmieding, Arthrex’s General Counsel. “Arthrex is resolved to continue its focus on fair and legal medical device innovation, and this ruling supports that mission." Schmieding said.<br><br>In dismissing the action, the Federal Circuit stated “Because there is no evidence of record supporting the jury’s verdict that the RetroButton infringes the ‘588 patent, JMOL is appropriate, and we must reverse.”<br><br>Arthrex, headquartered in Naples, FL, is a worldwide leader in sports medicine product development and educational services for orthopaedic surgeons.
