With the same technology and proven science,1 we now offer a uniquely designed augmented tibial stem (ATS) that complements our existing knee spacer. This new component comes in multiple size and thickness options to best fit patient anatomy without sacrificing the stem length.
*7mm and 12mm thickness options
Continuing our goal to provide infection-related solutions, Exactech introduces InterSep – a 100% synthetic calcium sulfate bone void filler engineered to fully resorb and replace bone during the healing process.
InterSep may be used in an infected bone site and provides surgeon flexibility with its bead and paste options.

*Partial weight bearing must be assessed on an individual basis with relation to the anatomic condition of the local bone, bone quality and clinical conditions of the patient during rehabilitation stages. Care must be taken to minimize the risk of damaging bone tissue and the implant through excessive weight bearing or forced mobilization
