More M & amp;A During AAOS Week

Are acquisitions going to be a “thing” during this year’s American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons (AAOS)? It certainly seems so. There was that huge M&A announcement from Smith &Nephew on the opening day of the conference, not to mention the London-based company also announcing it would acquire BrainLab’s orthopedic joint reconstruction business. On AAOS’s second day, Corin Group certainly seems to be in the deal-making mood by revealing it’s acquiring Omni Orthopedics. The acquisition would give the Canton, OH-based company a clear entry point into a robotic orthopedics market already inhabited by Stryker and Medtronic. Omni was founded in 1999 and focuses on robotic-assisted knee replacement. The company has developed OmniBotics an imageless total knee replacement solution that combines a robotic cutting guide with a robotic tool to measure ligament function. The system allows tailoring of the implant positioning to each individual patient, resulting in less patient pain and faster rehabilitation. “With the combination of Corin's unique Optimized Positioning System for the hip and the OmniBotics platform for the knee, Corin is now uniquely positioned to address functional patient-specific joint replacement,” Stefano Alfonsi, Corin’s CEO, said in a release. Corin and Omni will exhibit together during AAOS. Corin...

AbstractPurposeThere is anecdotal evidence that many patients who undergo reduction mammoplasty (RM) procedures, to relieve symptoms of large breasts, also report improvement in existing back pain. Given how important back pain is as a healthcare burden, the literature which explores the relationship between RM and back pain is sparse. Thus, we aimed to appraise whether such a correlation exists, through systematic review and meta-analysis.MethodAdhering to PRISMA methodology, we used the OVID engine to search the MEDLINE and Embase databases with predefined search terms and inclusion criteria. MeSH terms were not exploded...

DiscussionThe study will utilize normal clinical procedures, which should aid the transferability and external validity of the results. The study will provide knowledge regarding the underlying mechanisms of the effects of SMT. Furthermore, the study will examine whether a CPM test is predictive of treatment outcome in a population of patients with recurrent and persistent NP.Trial registrationClinicalTrials.gov,NCT03576846.
