PLAINSBORO, N.J., May 23, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Integra LifeSciences Holdings Corporation (Nasdaq:IART), a leading global medical technology company, today announced the launch of the Integra® Fin-Lock™ Glenoid. This addition to the Titan™ Modular Shoulder System increases the glenoid offerings to include features intended to help maximize long-term fixation and implant longevity.
Glenoid component loosening and failure has been cited as a leading cause of total shoulder arthroplasty complications and failure. The Fin-Lock Glenoid seeks to address this with design attributes that provide immediate and enduring stability. The prosthesis features a central peg with four fins of increased diameter to help improve pull-out strength, and three peripheral pegs to help provide stability against component rocking. The device is manufactured of highly crosslinked polyethylene, to help provide improved wear characteristics over the life of the implant.
"We're very excited to launch the Fin-Lock system. This is an impressive addition to an already robust portfolio that positions Integra as having one of the premier shoulder arthroplasty portfolios in the market. With this launch, we have a strong foundation for Integra's commitment to developing the best glenoid solutions for surgeons and their patients," said Mark Augusti, President of Integra's Orthopedics & Tissue Technologies division.
The Fin-Lock Glenoid was developed in conjunction with Matthew Ramsey, MD, of the Rothman Institute, and William Geissler, MD, of the University of Mississippi Medical Center.
Dr. Geissler said, "I am very impressed with how Integra continues to grow their already expansive shoulder arthroplasty product line. They continue to innovate with new products that help streamline the procedure for the surgeon and improve outcomes for our patients."
