Ascension Orthopedics Announces Market Release of TITAN™ Modular Shoulder Fracture Prosthesis

AUSTIN, Texas, March 28, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Ascension Orthopedics, Inc., a world leader in PyroCarbon orthopedic devices, announces the market release of the TITAN Modular Shoulder Fracture Prosthesis. The TITAN Modular Total Shoulder System now provides a unique way to address difficult fracture procedures. The system's modularity allows the surgeon to fit patient anatomy by independently adjusting the height of the modular body and stem without need for jigs or use of cement.

"The TITAN System offers a modular fracture body – providing press fit application in managing comminuted proximal humerus fracture by hemiarthroplasty. By not using cement, I save considerable operative time and do not have to worry about the cement potentially causing a nonunion between the tuberosities and humeral shaft," stated William Geissler, M.D. of the University of Mississippi Medical Center in Jackson, MS. "The reduced size fracture body makes it much easier to reduce the tuberosities to themselves. Also, the modularity of the different body heights enables me to obtain correct humeral head height to the glenoid after I have a tight fit of the stem in the proximal humerus. The prosthesis allows for a nice reduction, and the postoperative x-rays look very anatomic."

"The addition of the fracture prosthesis to the TITAN Modular Total Shoulder System is another great progression for Ascension," commented Guy Mayer, President and CEO of Ascension Orthopedics. "The newly released TITAN Fracture Prosthesis will be featured in our upcoming anatomic skills workshop, Redefining Modularity in Shoulder Arthroplasty, scheduled for April 9 in Las Vegas, NV."
