Conventional treatment of knee pain and resultant dysfunction currently does not adequately address the sources of pain due to difficulty visualizing, accessing and treating the intraosseous (bone marrow) lesion. Current clinical procedures and systems on the market only approximate the location of the lesion potentially providing a less precise clinical outcome as well as requiring fluoroscopy for localization and confirmation.
The PanPlasty(TM) procedure and instrument system addresses current procedural and product limitations available to surgeons.
Management of early knee osteoarthritis presents a challenge for many orthopaedic surgeons and patients. Etiology from many of these patients originates from bone marrow lesions (subchondral edema) and if left untreated could lead to progressive pain, progression of arthritis, and subsequent need for knee arthroplasty(1).
Using the PanPlastyTM Instrument System and custom trocar provides new and unique benefits to the surgeon and patient.
The PanPlasty Instrument System is uniquely designed to precisely target and delivery biomaterials to ensure precise treatment of intraosseous lesions potentially lessening/alleviating patient pain and delaying the need for more complex and invasive arthroplasty surgical procedures.
