Arlington, Tennessee – On August 18, MicroPort® Orthopedics, a medical device company that develops and manufactures cutting-edge joint replacement implants and approaches, announced the launch of its Procotyl® Prime Acetabular Cup System in the US.
"At MicroPort® Orthopedics, we embrace the constant advance in orthopedic medicine, and have a deep commitment to creating products that make patients' lives better," said Aurelio Sahagun, President. "The Procotyl® Prime Acetabular Cup System, with its best-in-class features, is a great example of this commitment, as it not only strengthens our position as a leader in surgical joint replacement, but also complements our existing products and surgical approaches to help patients return to full function faster."
The Procotyl® Prime Acetabular Cup System, which is the next step in the evolution of the successful Dynasty® Acetabular Cup System, received 510k Clearance from the U.S. Food & Drug Administration in late June.
"Procotyl® Prime Acetabular Cup System 's design is a culmination of over 20 years of market experience coupled with intelligent design and engineering," said Dr. James Chow, Director of Orthopedics Hip & Joint at Phoenix St. Luke's Medical Center. "We set out to design an implant optimized for highly-crosslinked polyethylene and modern 3D fixation surfaces, allowing us to eliminate compromises. The result is a shell that is strong and flexible, has maximized poly thickness and robust pull-out strength, all while allowing the versatility of large head options in the smallest sizes."
In addition to the benefits of the implant, the Procotyl® Prime Acetabular Cup System is the first on the market designed with simple, versatile instrumentation to support a variety of surgical approaches, including all of MicroPort's soft-tissue sparing philosophies.
Dr. Brad Penenberg, Chief of Arthroplasty Service at Cedars-Sinai Hospital, said, "Procotyl® Prime Acetabular Cup System is the first acetabular component adapted for MicroPort® Orthopedics' novel portal-assisted acetabular instrumentation. This unique approach facilitates preservation of soft tissue, fast patient recovery, and direct acetabular visualization."
