Onkos Surgical Announces FDA 510(k) Clearance of its BioGrip® Modular Porous Collars, a First-of-Its-Kind Solution to Help Address Implant Loosening in Orthopaedic Oncology and Complex Revision Surgery

The new offering, available as part of the ELEOS™ Limb Salvage System, is designed to help support bone ingrowth in musculoskeletal oncology and complex orthopaedic limb salvage cases with a novel 3D-printed porous design

PARSIPPANY, N.J., June 22, 2021 /OrthoSpineNews/ — Onkos Surgical, a leading innovator of solutions for musculoskeletal oncology and complex orthopaedic procedures, today announced that it has received FDA 510(k) clearance for its modular collar portfolio featuring the Company’s BioGrip® 3D-printed implant technology. The patented design, now available as part of the ELEOSTM Limb Salvage System, was created to help address the clinical challenge of aseptic loosening (also known as implant loosening) in musculoskeletal oncology and complex orthopaedic limb salvage surgery. 

With its new 3D-printed porous structure and novel Nano HA treatment, the BioGrip collar is designed to help provide bone ingrowth at the bone-implant interface which may help address aseptic loosening1. The treatment helps to accelerate and enhance osseointegration2.

The 3D-printed, nano HA treated design is one of two interchangeable collar designs that Onkos has added to its offering to address these complex clinical challenges. The clearance also includes an oval shaped collar design to provide greater contact in distal femoral replacements, where subsidence is a common challenge among complex revision and trauma applications.

“Research has shown that designs treated with hydroxyapatite provide greater surface area for bone ingrowth and may result in lower rates of implant loosening,” said Dr. Shervin Oskouei, Division Director of Orthopedic Oncology at Emory University and Chief of Orthopedic Surgery at Emory University Hospital Midtown. “Having this technology available at the bone-implant junction is critical to supporting a reconstruction that may lead to improved implant longevity for these complex procedures.”

Patrick Treacy, CEO and co-founder of Onkos Surgical said, “This is a historic day for Onkos Surgical. When we started the company, we set out to deliver innovation that would directly address the long-established clinical challenges of limb salvage surgery – soft-tissue attachment, implant loosening, and infection. In the past six months, we have made significant progress by launching new ELEOS products aimed at improving the challenges of soft tissue attachment. Our latest innovation, the BioGrip collar portfolio, delivers on our promise to help address the challenge of implant loosening. With our focused commercial approach and substantial R&D investments, we will continue to be the leading provider of innovative solutions for musculoskeletal oncology and other complex orthopaedic procedures.”
