RTI Biologics Sees Expanded Surgeon User Base of Fresh OC Allografts
Date:10/30/2008

e all RTI tissue, extensive donor screening in accordance with Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and American Association of Tissue Banks (AATB) requirements is conducted. In addition to serological testing, state of the art microbiological testing – which includes testing for bacterial spores and fungi – is used throughout the process to screen for potential contamination. Additionally, all fresh-stored OC allografts are placed in a proprietary antibiotic soak developed by RTI to eliminate potential contaminants.

Articles published in respected journals such as The American Journal of Sports Medicine and The Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery, have shown the efficacy of fresh osteochondral allografts in cartilage repair surgeries for many patients.

"We are happy to see the rapid adoption of RTI's fresh-stored OC allografts by sports medicine surgeons," said Rod Allen, RTI's vice president of sports medicine. "Fresh OC allografts and RTI's BioCleanse meniscus expand the clinical options that surgeons have to treat complex cartilage injuries."

In addition to fresh-stored grafts, RTI offers instrument sets. The instrument set facilitates harvesting of a large diameter osteochondral cylinder from the allograft as well as donor site preparation in order to achieve a press-fit on the patient repair site. The instruments are available for loan at no charge when combined with a fresh-stored grafted ordered from RTI.

Fresh-stored OC allografts are available through RTI's direct representatives and distributors. Anterior-posterior and lateral radiographs are used to size-match grafts to awaiting patients and are currently being accepted by RTI. For further information, contact an RTI allograft specialist at (800) 624-7238.
