ConforMIS jumps on analyst ’ s upgrade

ConforMIS (NSDQ:CFMS) shares closed up more than 12% yesterday after a BTIG analyst upgraded his rating on the company, which makes customized knee and hip implants. BTIG’s Ryan Zimmerman raised his rating on CFMS shares from “neutral” to”buy,” setting a price target of $4 per share. Of the 10 analysts covering the stock, six have set “buy” ratings and four have the shares on “hold,” with price targets ranging from $28 to Zimmerman’s $4. Investors reacted to the upgrade by sending CFMS shares up 12.3% to a $2.56 close yesterday on heavy volume, after the stock peaking at $2.69. More than 1 million shares traded hands yesterday, compared with average volume of nearly 275,000 shares. Billerica, Mass.-based ConforMIS gave back some of that gain today in late-morning trading, sliding-2.7% to $2.49 per share as of about 11:15am. The stock is off -24.0% this year. The company uses computed tomography joint scans to create implants and instruments customized to each patient’s unique anatomy. ConforMIS, which paid $6.5 million for the machining and polishing assets of Broad Peak Manufacturing in August, won 510(k) clearance from the FDA for the iTotal Hip replacement system in June.

This study aimed to quantify artifacts caused by navigation markers made of different materials and to evaluate their effects on registration accuracy under various oral conditions. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Four U-shaped tubes with different navigation markers (440c stainless steel, silicon nitride, zirconium oxide, and aluminium oxide) were produced by three-dimensional printing. Four kinds of maxillary plaster models were prepared to stimulate four tooth crown conditions. U-shaped tubes combined with different tooth models were scanned using cone beam computed tomography (CBCT). The size of artifacts from different nav...

Abstract A 46 year old lady presented three weeks after an oesophagectomy for oesophageal carcinoma with increasing breathlessness and a large left-sided pleural effusion. Computed tomography (CT) scan of her thorax, abdomen and pelvis revealed a large left-sided and small right-sided pleural effusions, a pericardial effusion, ascites and intra-abdominal lymphadenopathy. The patient underwent both pericardial and pleural fluid drainage, however, unfortunately, deteriorated despite these interventions with increasing oxygen requirements requiring nasal high flow oxygen on the Intensive Care Unit. Her pleural and pe...

Authors: Kwon BC, Lee JK, Lee SY, Hwang JY, Seo JH Abstract Background: Significant discrepancy exists between anatomical plate designs and the anatomy of the native distal radius, which may be attributable to considerable morphometric variations in the volar aspect of the distal radius. We aimed to evaluate the degree of variability in the morphometry of the distal radius and identify factors associated with this variability. Methods: We measured the volar surface angle (VSA) of the intermediate and lateral columns and the volar surface width (VSW) in the distal radius from three-dimensional computed tomograph...

Authors: Nicolini F, Arnaud E, Usami K, Vecchione A, Brunelle F, Rocco FD Abstract Background: Infants with sagittal suture synostosis often present a pathologic dilatation of subarachnoid spaces. The impact of such subarachnoid spaces' enlargement in the morphology of the skull, especially on the forehead and on the surgical outcome, was analyzed. Methods: Children less than 6 months of age undergoing a surgical correction of the scaphocephaly with Renier's H technique between 2003 and 2008 were included in the study. In these patients, preoperative and postoperative fronto-occipital diameter (FOD), biparietal...

AbstractA 25-year-old male presented with left sided nasal obstruction and epistaxis. To study about a rare case of extranasopharyngeal angiofibroma. Endoscopic evaluation revealed a polypoid mass in the vestibule arising from the lateral wall of the nasal cavity anteroinferior to the left inferior turbinate. Computed tomography scan showed a soft tissue opacity in the vestibule of the left nasal cavity. After the endoscopic excision of the mass, postoperative and histopathological analyses confirmed the diagnosis of an angiofibroma.
