The first 100 cases constitute a milestone for Episurf. The fact that we can now also compile good clinical follow-up data reflects in the increasing demand for the technology. After 3.5 years, there has not been a single revision, which is quite unprecedented in the field” comments Dr Leif Ryd, Senior Medical Advisor and Board Member, Episurf Medical.
To date, patients in ten European countries have been treated with the Episealer implant, most of them in Episurf’s key markets, Germany and the UK, as well as the Nordic and Benelux regions.
“This is an important milestone for Episurf Medical, following the satisfactory results we have seen in the recent 1-year follow-up data across 24 patients. Strengthened by clinical data showing that patients are truly helped by the Episealer implant, we shall continue working towards mainstreaming Episurf’s patient-specific treatment options as a new standard within the orthopedic industry. In line with our Q1 2016 statement, we are experiencing growth in our business and we anticipate the next 100 implants will come significantly faster than the first 100 as surgeons increase their knowledge about the procedure,” says Rosemary Cunningham Thomas, CEO of Episurf Medical.
