Wright Medical closes rights agreement for BioMimetics buyout

Wright Medical (NSDQ:WMGI) said yesterday that it closed a contingent value rights agreement connected to its acquisition of BioMimetic Therapeutics. Wright agreed to pay $380 million in cash, stock and milestone payments to pick up BioMimetic and its Augment bone graft back in 2013. The FDA cleared the bone graft with indications as an alternative autograft for ankle and hindfoot fusion procedures in September 2015. The Amsterdam-based company said that the agreement, dated March 1, 2013 between it and American Stock Transfer &Trust, is terminated effective March 1, according to a press release. The Augment bone graft uses a combination of a bone-growth stimulator called recombinant human platelet-derived growth factor and beta-tricalcium phosphate, which is designed to form a scaffold for new bone growth. Last June, Wright Medical won FDA premarket approval for an injectable version of the Augment bone graft.

AbstractPurpose of ReviewThe purpose of this review is to provide a comprehensive update on recent advances in heart transplantation.Recent FindingsHeart transplantation is now an established therapy for end-stage heart failure, though challenges still exist. However, multiple advances over the past few years will improve the survival and quality of life of heart transplant recipients. These advances include acceptance of previously considered marginal donor hearts, revisions to the donor heart allocation policy, advances in desensitization regimens, tailoring of immunosuppression regimens, and improvement in the diagnosis...

DR JASON WELLEN (St Louis, MO): Dr Cannon and colleagues have presented a retrospective analysis of United Network for Organ Sharing (UNOS) data comparing the outcomes of kidney transplantation, after a simultaneous liver kidney transplantation (SLK), compared with a matched cohort of kidney transplants. They used UNOS data between 2003 and 2012 in order to incorporate the changes to the Model for End-Stage Liver Disease (MELD) allocation. Their manuscript sought to illustrate the potential lost life years of kidney allografts that are being transplanted as SLKs.

AbstractBackgroundReconstruction of combined segmental and cavitary defects of the acetabulum is a challenge to the hip surgeon. One question regards the efficacy of reconstruction of acetabular defects using a combination of tantalum metal augments (TMAs) and impaction graft in single-stage revision for periprosthetic infection.Materials and methodsIn the period between July 2009 and August 2014, 24 patients with combined segmental and cavitary acetabular defects and Paprosky classification grade IIB, IIC, and IIIA had hips reconstructed using the combination of TMAs and antibiotic-loaded impaction grafting. A similar gro...

Authors: Hengjeerajaras P, Froum SJ, Adawi HAA, Yu P, Cho SC Abstract The aim of this report is to present a case with a 10-year follow-up of a single anterior tooth dental implant replacement with a xenogenous bone graft in a patient with a large bone defect associated with a cleft lip and palate. At 10 years postloading, the implant was healthy and well-integrated. Although the implant restoration appeared slightly intruded due to growth and development at that time, the patient was happy with the esthetic result and refused corrections of the uneven occlusal plane.

Authors: Sebaoun A, Nemcovsky CE, Beitlitum I, Moses O Abstract Free connective tissue grafts, barrier membranes, pedicle flaps, soft tissue allografts, and xenografts have been described for root coverage and augmenting the zone of attached gingiva. The present report evaluated a modified tunnel surgical procedure for root coverage of mandibular anterior teeth where a connective tissue graft was combined with a tunnel and double papilla flap. Fourteen patients with 18 consecutive Miller Class I or II gingival recession defects in the anterior mandible were treated with a connective tissue graft combined with a tun...
