J & J ’ s DePuy Synthes launches Trumatch titanium 3D-printed facial reconstruction implants

Johnson &Johnson (NYSE:JNJ) subsidiary DePuy Synthes said today it launched its Trumatch titanium 3D-printed implants designed for use in facial reconstructions in the US. The company said it inked an exclusive distribution deal with 3D-printer and software solution supplier Materialise as part of the launch. “DePuy Synthes offers advanced technologies for facial reconstruction, orthognathic surgery, distraction and cranial reconstruction. The addition of Titanium 3D-Printed Implants from Materialise will allow us to continue bringing these solutions to the marketplace, furthering our ability to advance patient care,” DePuy Synthes prez Juan-José Gonzalez said in a prepared statement. DePuy Synthes said that with the launch, it is now able to offer Trumatch Orthognathics, which serves as a personalized total solution for corrective jaw surgery and includes virtual surgical planning and patient specific implants with a goal of improving accuracy, efficiency and outcomes. The Trumatch titanium 3D-printed implants are based on CT scans of a patient’s skull and the outcomes of computer-aided surgical planning, the company said. DePuy Synthes asid it plans to begin marketing of the devices in mid-September. “We have been using Trumatch Orthognathics for more than a year and the use of these personalized surgical guides and plates demonstrate a high predictability of maxillary positioning. In addition to saving time in the OR, the use of...

In this study, X-ray micro-computed tomography scanning coupled with image analysis was used to investigate the influence of bread formulation on micro-structural characteristics of particularly the crumb. Results for standard whole wheat flour bread (WWB) and two functional breads formulated by partial replacement of whole wheat flour by 10% (FGF10) and 20% (FGF20) cryo-ground fermented green gram flour showed a significant variation in their micro-structural properties. For example, the total volume of bread crumb and total surface area of pores were nearly reduced by 34% in FGF10 and 71% in FGF20 samples compared to WWB...

Authors: Forster F, Schulte W Abstract Here we present an extremely rare but important cause of pulmonary hemorrhage during pregnancy. A 41-year-old patient was seen with hemoptysis in the 29th week of her pregnancy which was initially assessed as unspecific inflammation. At the 34th week of pregnancy, she presented again, this time with hemoptoe and dizziness caused by an unknown idiopathic pulmonary AV malformation. The patient underwent extensive interdisciplinary evaluation including bronchoscopy, emergency cesarean section was performed, which was followed by CT scan and VATS/minithoracotomy with segment resec...

We present on a case of a thirty-two-year-old man admitted to our department for acute onset of paraplegia and sensitive anesthesia below T1 level; a CT scan showed a C6–C7 fracture of the body, involving the posterior elements and characterized by high instability with 20° of kyphosis. The patient underwent a C2-T7 posterior fixation. At the 3-month follow-up, the patient recovered partial motility on the lower limbs and the implant appeared stable. In general, no single treatment modality has proven effective in arresting the disease. Only eight cases have been treated by surgical fixation. In fact, the literat...

CONCLUSIONS: Subject-specific tibia models can provide even great insights into the mechanisms of stress fracture injury, which are common in military and athletic settings. Rapid development of 3D tibia models allows for the future work of determining peak stress-related injury correlates to stress fracture outcomes. PMID: 30901405 [PubMed - in process]

CONCLUSIONS: IVC shrank early but collapsed late during the acute hemorrhage in swine. The finding of collapsed IVC on CT scans suggested severe hypovolemic shock. Evaluation of the IVC at the CT scans can be an adjunctive test of the hemodynamic status in trauma patients. PMID: 30894039 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Wang S, Niu X, Bao X, Wang Q, Zhang J, Lu S, Wang Y, Xu L, Wang M, Zhang J Abstract Non‑small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) metastasis commonly occurs in bone, which often results in pathological fractures. Sustained phosphoinositide‑3‑kinase (PI3K) signalling promotes the growth of PI3K‑dependent NSCLC and elevates osteoclastogenic potential. The present study investigated the effects of a PI3K inhibitor on NSCLC growth in bone and osteoclast formation, and aimed to determine whether it could control symptoms associated with bone metastasis. A bone metastasis xenograft model was established by implanti...

ConclusionBowel perforation in the elderly, presenting with cachexia and treatment-induced pancytopenia for advanced ovarian cancer, is often a harbinger of early death. Selected patients may benefit from a minimally invasive approach by an experienced gynecologic oncologist instead of vertical laparotomy, abdominal washout, diversion and the potential sequelae of an open abdomen.
