TRUMATCH is a made-to-measure implant that is transforming total knee replacement surgery. Benefits include:
- Faster, safer, more efficient surgery. In many ways, surgeons perform the operation before they even enter the OR.TRUMATCH uses a simple CT scan to develop a 3-D computerized model of the entire leg structure and create a customized surgical guide, based on each patient’s unique anatomy. With fewer surgical steps and less equipment in the OR, surgery is quicker and safer, the risk of infection is significantly lower, and patients spend less time under anesthesia, which reduces the chance of complications such as blood clots.
- Precise alignment for better wear resistance. The customized surgical guide improves the placement and positioning of the implant, which is critical for overall performance and long-term success. “This level of precision improves alignment and stability which will, hopefully, result in less wear and tear down the line,” explains Dr. Madden. “One of the biggest problems in total joint replacement is that the bearing surfaces eventually wear out. But the TRUMATCH process should help the implant last longer, which is the ultimate goal.”
