Smith & Nephew Receives FDA 510k Clearance for a 30-year Knee
Date:4/22/2010

f several known reasons for revision surgery.  VERILAST technology may significantly reduce the risk of failure for patients who would have been revised due to wear.

About VERILAST Technology

VERILAST technology is the combination of two advanced bearing surface technologies: Smith & Nephew's patented metal alloy OXINIUM oxidized zirconium, used on the femoral side of the joint, and highly cross-linked polyethylene (plastic), implanted on the tibial side. OXINIUM material has been in use in knee replacements for more than a decade, but was only recently coupled with highly cross-linked polyethylene components. OXINIUM is a metal alloy that undergoes a proprietary heating process, transforming its surface into a hard, smooth ceramic that is 4,900 times more resistant to scratching than traditional materials. It is 20-percent lighter than cobalt chromium, the metal used in conventional knee replacements, and because it doesn't contain detectable amounts of nickel like cobalt chromium does, it is considered hypoallergenic and safe for patients with metal allergies.

Smith & Nephew's primary knee replacement systems, the LEGION and GENESIS™ II knee implants, are currently available with VERILAST technology.

*As compared to wear simulator data seen for a traditional bearing couple for an estimated five years
