Medacta Receives FDA Clearance for the Lateralized Glenosphere
CASTEL SAN PIETRO, 02 September 2020 - Medacta announced today that it has received clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for its Lateralized Glenosphere. This implant, which received the CE marking in 2019, further expands the Medacta offering for shoulder arthroplasty, broadening the range of options for reverse shoulder replacement surgery.
The Lateralized Glenosphere features a more lateralized center of rotation compared to the standard glenosphere currently offered with the Medacta Shoulder System. The potential benefits of a more lateralized construct include an improved range of motion and a reduced risk of scapular notching.
The Medacta Shoulder System is a modular solution that includes a wide range of sizes, adjustable offset and innovative configurations for both the anatomic and reverse shoulder arthroplasty. It is compatible with the CT-based MyShoulder 3D preoperative planning solution, offering patient-specific humeral and glenoid guides.
Earlier in 2020, the Medacta Shoulder System expanded with the introduction of the Long Humeral Diaphysis. This new option, together with the Lateralized Glenosphere, makes the Medacta Shoulder System increasingly complete and innovative.
