The Additive Orthopaedics Patient Specific Talus Spacer is an alternative treatment option to fusion and amputation and requires talus replacement surgery. During this procedure the native talus bone is removed and replaced with a 3D printed replica. This is considered a joint-sparing procedure, as it allows the patient to maintain motion of his/her ankle joint.
The Additive Orthopaedics Patient Specific Talus Spacer is an additively manufactured Patient Specific Talus Implant.
- The FIRST and ONLY Patient Specific Talus Implant approved by the FDA
- Indicated for Avascular Necrosis of the ankle
- Provides pain relief and preserves motion of the ankle joint
- Alternative to fusion or amputation
- The Patient Specific Talus Spacer is an additively manufactured, or 3D printed, patient specific implant that is designed and made individually for each patient using CT image data.
The Patient Specific Talus Spacer is indicated for avascular necrosis of the ankle joint. The anatomical landmarks necessary for the design and creation of the Additive Orthopaedics Patient Specific Talus Spacer must be present and identifiable on computed tomography (CT) scan.
