The first cases with Exactech's new TriVerse knee system were completed in Kentucky and Texas, the devicemaker said Sept. 5.
Chris Christensen, MD, of Bluegrass Orthopaedics in Lexington, Ky., and David Taunton, Jr., MD, of Texas Orthopedic Specialists in Bedford, performed the first cases, according to a news release.
TriVerse has anterior stabilized and posterior stabilized constructs and is available with highly crosslinked vitamin E polyethylene. It will be launched with a full set of instruments for same-day surgery.
"The TriVerse design leans on the successful clinical heritage of previous knee systems, providing surgeons with familiar efficiency and patients with a successful clinical design," Dr. Taunton said in the release. "The simplicity and intraoperative flexibility of Exactech’s new knee system facilitates the same-day surgery that my patients desire and provides a modern implant construct that meets the needs of their active lifestyles."
