Acumed launches Pelvic Plating System

Pelvic Plating System marks Acumed's entry into the market of orthopaedic implants for the pelvis

HILLSBORO, Ore., March 24, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Long known for its orthopaedic implants for trauma to the extremities, Acumed is venturing into a new and expanding market it feels has not seen adequate innovation in recent years:  orthopaedic implants and instrumentation for the surgical repair of fractures and joint disruptions of the pelvis.

Acumed's new Pelvic Plating System includes plates, screws and instrumentation designed to provide fixation for fractures, fusions, and osteotomies of the acetabulum, sacrum, ilium, and pelvic ring as well as treatment of sacroiliac joint dislocations and symphysis pubis disruptions.

More specifically, the System features both strategically pre-contoured and un-contoured plates, pre-contoured in places where it may save time and add secure fixation, and un-contoured in places to allow for buttressing of fractures or varying patient anatomy.  In addition, Acumed's new system allows for the option to bend any of the pelvic plates, utilizing instrumentation provided within the system.

Further, enhancements to traditional pelvic instrumentation (which include various pliers, cutters, clamps and drills) are incorporated with the intention to ease surgical techniques and reduce time in surgery to benefit both surgeon and patient.

Acumed's pelvic fracture system was developed in conjunction with leading trauma surgeons and is Acumed's first step in its plans to expand its presence in trauma.

"Acumed is focused on expanding our trauma presence in areas where we feel we can leverage engineering excellence and innovation to provide new solutions." says Rich Rice, Acumed Vice President of Extremities, Trauma and Biologics.

"We identified pelvic fractures as an indication where very little innovation has occurred in the last ten years," he adds. "Moreover, with the aging population in developed countries, we feel the incidence rate of pelvic fractures per year will increase and there will be a need for better solutions than are on the market today."

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete.

Most DevOps journeys involve several phases of maturity. Research shows that the inflection point where organizations begin to see maximum value is when they implement tight integration deploying their code to their infrastructure. Success at this level is the last barrier to at-will deployment. Storage, for instance, is more capable than where we read and write data.
