December 15, 2021
RICHARDSON, Texas–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Fuse Medical, Inc. (OTCPINK: FZMD) (“Fuse” or the “Company”) an emerging manufacturer and distributor of innovative medical devices for the orthopedic and spine marketplace, announced the official distribution partnership with BRM Extremities S.r.l. (“BRM”) for the exclusive US national distribution of Silktoe® metatarsophalangeal joint arthroplasty implant. This is the latest addition to Fuse’s comprehensive portfolio of lower extremity products.
Silktoe® offers patients with severe arthritis in the metatarsophalangeal joint another option outside of fusion. The design is derived from historical silastic toe arthroplasty devices and evolved to offer a more anatomical fit and replication of natural anatomical motion.
The system consists of an elastomeric silicone spacer placed within each of the two bones comprising the metatarsophalangeal joint during toe arthroplasty and secured in place by titanium grommets. Available in five different sizes specific to the left or right foot, Silktoe® is sterile packaged and ready for implantation.
Silktoe® is intended for arthroplasty of the first metatarsophalangeal joint (MTP1) of the foot. It represents a permanent implant, used in all severe forms of arthritis, such as: hallux rigidus or hallux limitus, painful rheumatoid arthritis, hallux abducto valgus associated with arthritis, or unstable or painful joint from previous surgery.
“Adding Silktoe® to our lower extremity portfolio aligns with Fuse’s focus on delivering products based on replication of anatomical motion,” commented Christopher C. Reeg, Chief Executive Officer of Fuse. “Historical designs that led to the evolution of Silktoe® have a significant history in the lower extremity market. While there are other options available, we believe the versatility of the device is superior to other toe arthroplasty products. We are excited to partner with BRM and look forward to expanding our distribution footprint with them in the US market.”
Reeg further added, “We are committed to adding both proven and innovative devices to our comprehensive portfolio of products within the spine, total joint, extremity, sports medicine, and biologics divisions. New technologies like Silktoe®, demonstrate our priority at Fuse remains to provide effective solutions for today’s clinical challenges and assist with improving surgical outcomes.”
