Back to Healio Anatomic total shoulder arthroplasty with an inlay glenoid component and a stemless, ovoid humeral head led to a high rate of return to occupational and sporting activities and improved clinical outcomes, according to published results. Gregory P. Nicholson Gregory P. Nicholson, MD, an associate professor in the department of orthopedic surgery at Rush University Medical Center, and colleagues analyzed information for 27 shoulders in a retrospective review of total shoulder arthroplasty (TSA) with an inlay glenoid component, specifically in young, active patients with a minimum 2-year follow-up. “We know that traditional TSA in younger patients – just like hip and knee replacement – has a higher, earlier failure rate,” Nicholson told Healio Orthopedics. “This younger, active population is typically still in the workforce and has higher recreational activity levels that they don’t want to give up.” “In this higher activity level and younger population, I attempted to avoid the onlay failure by utilizing the best material combination of metal and plastic,” Nicholson said. “The Arthrosurface OVO with inlay glenoid is a modern TSA with two important features: The glenoid is inlayed into the subchondral bone level of the glenoid face, and the humeral head component is aspherical or ovoid shaped. This is closer to normal anatomy and has been shown to biomechanically transmit force across the glenoid less than traditional spherical heads.” “The system is bone sparing, has numerous biomechanical advantages, and the ‘symbiotic’ relationship between the inlay glenoid component and the subchondral surface bone provides excellent pain relief, range of motion, and return to work and recreational activity,” Nicholson added. The results showed significant improvements in patient-reported outcome measures and range of motion with no reoperations, according to the study abstract. The rate of return to work was 92.6%, with 76% of patients making a full recovery back to preoperative occupational demand levels. Results showed 92.59% of patients returned to work after undergoing total shoulder arthroplasty with an inlay glenoid component. “I think [the results] will stimulate more investigation on the kinematics of these types of TSA procedures with inlay glenoid components and the potential advantage of an aspherical humeral head shape,” Nicholson said. “There is another option to traditional stemmed TSA that can provide consistent pain relief, functional return and allow a higher activity level. This can allow patients of all walks of life to maintain a livelihood they may not have been able to continue with otherwise,” he added.

Formae, Inc. Formae is developing new approaches to cartilage replacement for osteoarthritis, using hydrogels that closely mimic the mechanical properties of hyaline cartilage. Formae's approach is in that it is minimally invasive and aims to provide for total rather than focal joint resurfacing. The company has a broad portfolio of issued and pending patents and a well-defined product and regulatory strategy. The technology can be applied to any joint, and has the potential to be implanted arthroscopically. Following the completion of ex-vivo mechanical testing that will meet a critical regulatory milestone, Formae will be seeking funds to conduct in-vivo implantation and biocompatibility testing. .

Satiety, Inc. is a medical device company focused on the development of less invasive devices for the treatment of obesity. Obesity is a global health problem, affecting 70 million people in the U.S. and 300 million worldwide, and growth of which is causing increases in obesity-related diseases such as diabetes, high blood pressure and cardiovascular disease. Obesity surgery has been shown to be the only long-term effective means of weight loss for morbidly obese patients. Satiety's first product, the TOGA System, enables physicians to perform a procedure similar to traditional restrictive obesity surgeries, but without surgical incisions. In this procedure, the TOGA System devices are inserted transorally (through the mouth) and are used to reduce the capacity of the stomach to give patients a feeling of fullness after a small meal. The procedure is intended to be safer and easier for patients to tolerate than conventional obesity surgery. Safety and effectiveness of the TOGA System are currently being evaluated in a multi-center U.S. Study and the system is not available for sale in the United States.
