EAST PROVIDENCE, RI--(Marketwired - Mar 17, 2015) -
IlluminOss Medical, a privately-held, commercial stage medical device company focused on minimally invasive orthopedic fracture repair. The IlluminOss System is the world's first and only system of its kind and offers significant advantages for the treatment of complex fractures.
IlluminOss Medical will be exhibiting its technology at AAOS 2015. The IlluminOss System utilizes a light-curable polymer, contained within an expandable balloon catheter, to achieve bone stabilization. The simple, percutaneous surgical approach enables surgeons to create a patient-conforming implant. In many cases it allows the patient to get back to daily activities more quickly without the hindrance of a hard cast.
Benefits observed from the use of the product in patients include smaller incisions, shorter procedure times, and more rapid post-procedure patient mobility with reduced hospital stays and lower complication rates. The small diameter of the flexible catheter gives the surgeon greater freedom of surgical approach. Once cured, the implant provides longitudinal strength and rotational stability over the length of the implant.
