DePuy Synthes Unveils VELYS ™ Robotic-Assisted Solution In Australia: The Next Generation Robotic-Assisted Solution For Knee Replacement Surgery Designed For Use With The ATTUNE® Knee System

Sydney, Australia, July 20, 2021 -- DePuy Synthes, the orthopaedics company of Johnson &Johnson, today announced that Australian orthopaedic surgeons will be among the first in the world to access the next generation of robotics. The VELYS™ Robotic-Assisted Solution, indicated for use with the ATTUNE® Knee System for total knee arthroplasty, has recently been included on the Australian Register of Therapeutic Goods (ARTG).Sue Martin, Managing Director of Johnson &Johnson Medical Australia and New Zealand says: “Australia joins an exclusive list of just a few countries with access to this technology to date. The introduction of the VELYS Robotic-Assisted Solution is testament to Johnson &Johnson Medical Device’s ongoing commitment to create innovative technologies that help hospitals and surgeons improve patient outcomes and advance the sustainability of Australia’s healthcare system.”An increasing number of surgical procedures utilise robotic assistance[iii]. However, the impact of robotic technology on operational efficiency, including surgical time and the technological learning curve, has been reported as a drawback.[iv] The VELYS Robotic-Assisted Solution is designed to respond to this challenge as a first-of-its-kind operating table mounted solution that adapts to the surgeon’s workflow and utilises advanced planning capabilities, proprietary technology, and a next generation design to help surgeons accurately resect bo...

Arch Orthop Trauma Surg. 2021 Sep 25. doi: 10.1007/s00402-021-04164-9. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTBACKGROUND: Dome-shaped supramalleolar osteotomies are a well-established treatment option for correcting ankle deformity. However, the procedure remains technically demanding and is limited by a two-dimensional (2D) radiographic planning of a three-dimensional (3D) deformity. Therefore, we implemented a weight-bearing CT (WBCT) to plan a 3D deformity correction using patient-specific guides.METHODS: A 3D-guided dome-shaped supramalleolar osteotomy was performed to correct ankle varus deformity in a case series of five pati...

Gut inflammation is a trigger of monocyte activation and may also affect their development in the bone marrow (BM). As gut inflammation is commonly observed in axSpA patients, we performed a detailed analysis of monocyte transcriptomes of axSpA patients in two cohorts and searched for signs of activation and developmental adaptations as putative imprints of gut inflammation.METHODS: Transcriptomes of blood CD14+ monocytes of HLA-B27+ axSpA...

AbstractRegenerating Family Member 3 Alpha (REG3A) is a multifunctional protein with antimicrobial activity, and primarily secreted by the intestine and pancreas. Studies have shown an increased expression of REG3A in systemic inflammatory responses to acute injury and infection, but studies investigating REG3A during the pathogenesis of ischemic stroke are limited. The aims of this study were to examine the associations between arterial expression of REG3A and other arterial inflammatory proteins implicated in stroke pathogenesis, as well as associations between REG3A and markers of poor outcome for ischemic stroke. The U...

Chest radiographs play a fundamental role in monitoring the conditions of these patients and assessing the intensive-care devices after their insertion; therefore, the radiologist needs to know their normal appearance and their correct position and should be aware of the possible complications that may occur after their placement. This pictorial revie...
