WARSAW, Ind., Sept. 05, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — WishBone Medical, Inc. announces the official launch of the single-use, sterile packed AlloMate Bone Pin System for the maintenance of alignment and fixation of bone fractures, osteotomies, arthrodesis or bone grafts and may also be used to fill a void left after screw removal.
The AlloMate Bone Pin System consists of allograft bone pins and accessory instrumentation for quick, reliable and reproducible bone pin insertion. The complete system will be available in five different individual sizes (2.0mm, 2.5mm, 3.0mm, 3.5mm, and 4.0mm) of sterilized human cortical bone pins & corresponding single-use instruments for convenient insertion. We will launch these various sizes in stages. The 3.0mm is currently available and the 2.5mm will be available soon followed by the 2.0mm and the additional sizes. Our initial market feedback with the 3.0mm system has been extremely positive.
These bone pins are sturdy, easy to handle and can integrate into the patient’s bone to help with the healing process. These sterile packed implants and instruments may potentially reduce the risk of infection and can be accurately trimmed intraoperatively to an appropriate length.
Daniel S. Schulman, D.P.M., helped develop this system and he said, “I have performed well over four hundred foot reconstructive procedures without the use of a metal implant. I can validate that this system will definitely simplify the surgical technique and minimize intra-operative and post-operative surgical complications. Patients are elated when they are told there will be no need for a second surgery to remove potentially painful, broken or even infected hardware.”
Nick Deeter, Chairman of the Board and CEO at WishBone Medical, said, “The AlloMate Bone Pin System does help minimize the need for removal in a secondary operation to remove hardware like stainless steel wires.” Mr. Deeter added, “Minimizing the number or surgeries for kids is very important to us.”
