Éragny-sur-Oise, Fleurieux sur l’Arbresle, France, le 08 août 2023 – Secure (FR001400F1V2 – ALSAF), french group specialised within the design, manufacturing and distribution of ready-to-use medical gadgets for Backbone surgical procedures, particularly protected for vertebral fracture handled in emergency, pronounces the publication of a biomechanical examine of Sycamore and over 160 sufferers handled with Sycamore.
Publication of the outcomes of the Sycamore biomechanical examine in the Journal of Experimental Orthopaedics, https://jeo-esska.springeropen.com/articles/10.1186/s40634-023-00635-7
Led by Professor Jean-Charles Le Huec, the examine compares the biomechanical habits of vertebrae handled by “Dowelplasty”, a brand new surgical approach utilizing a pedicle anchored system Sycamore (business identify by Secure Orthopedics) with a conventional kyphoplasty system. The examine is printed within the Journal of Experimental Orthopedics.
Sycamore consists of (a) a cannulated titanium nail and (b) a titanium dowel immediately anchored within the pedicle; (c) the cannulated nail is inserted and locked into the dowel, and the cement is injected by means of the nail.
As compared with the Kyphoplasty, Sycamore exhibits a major enhance of the compression energy (373 N ; IC à 95% ; – 331 N versus – 1076 N for Sycamore).
1- The remedy of a compression fracture with Sycamore permits a really important enhance within the resistance to load of the fractures in comparison with the pre-treatment state.
2 – Sycamore gives a larger enchancment in load resistance and fracture displacement vitality than balloon kyphoplasty, suggesting that Sycamore could also be a great different for the remedy of vertebral compression fractures.
Sycamore gives larger enchancment of the load resistance and fracture displacement vitality in comparison with conventional kyphoplasty, suggesting that Sycamore is an efficient different for the remedy of vertebrae compression fractures.
Professor Jean-Charles Le Huec, consumer of the system confirms in scientific apply the great outcomes obtained within the laboratory. With a follow-up of two years, the losses of corrections don’t exceed 2.1° in comparison with the rapid postoperative outcomes. That is really outstanding in comparison with kyphoplasty and different techniques in the marketplace with out pedicle anchorage the place the cement can sink into the vertebral physique, particularly in instances of osteoporosis.
Pierre Dumouchel, Chairman and CEO de Secure Group feedback « Initially, we want to thank Professor Jean-Charles Le Huec and all of the surgeons who contributed to the event and scientific follow-up of Sycamore, a singular and patented Secure Orthopedics expertise for higher administration of sufferers with vertebral fractures. We’ve got handled over 160 sufferers with our Sycamore applied sciences and are seeing very promising scientific outcomes. By way of current listings in lots of French facilities and worldwide deployment, we’re delighted to have the ability to profit a lot of sufferers from the scientific advantages already noticed and purpose to speed up the Secure Orthopaedics gross sales».
