Paragon 28, Inc. Receives FDA Clearance and Successfully Completes First MAVEN™ Patient-Specific Instrumentation Surgery

MAVEN PSI delivers breakthrough technology designed to improve the surgeon experience and post-operative outcomes.

ENGLWOOD, Colo., May 4, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Paragon 28, Inc. unveils the highly anticipated MAVEN™ PSI System, a platform technology thoughtfully designed to expedite accurate positioning of the APEX 3D™ Total Ankle Replacement System.

MAVEN™ Patient-Specific Surgical Planning

MAVEN PSI advances patient-specific technologies with anatomical design features promoting alignment accuracy, stability, and ideal implant placement. MAVEN PSI is compatible with both weight-bearing CT and traditional CT scanning technologies and features one continuous scan from the knee through the base of the foot to capture biomechanically accurate data. The combination of patient-specific CT information, contoured guides, and APEX 3D implant designs provide the surgeon with exceptional technology streamlined to optimize patient outcomes.

Design Surgeon Dr. Jeffrey Christensen performed the first MAVEN surgery in Seattle, Washington last week and stated:

“MAVEN PSI technology is in a class of its own. The System introduces a perfect blend of performance and reliability. Most importantly, the System allowed for excellent pre-operative visualization of the patient’s anatomic structures, established precise component alignment, and helped to determine accurate implant size selection and placement which is critical for long term survivorship.1

As a system, MAVEN PSI includes three unique anatomically contoured alignment guides, bone models, and a  customized pre-operative plan. The System features the first and only Tibial AP Positioning Spacer on the market, developed to simplify the time-consuming sizing evaluation process of the tibial component and establish optimal tibial bone coverage. MAVEN PSI also allows for refined intra-operative positioning and micro adjustments if necessary. Learn more about the MAVEN PSI System here.
