Ascension Orthopedics Receives FDA Approval for TITAN™ Modular Total Shoulder System
Date:9/2/2010

AUSTIN, Texas, Sept. 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Ascension Orthopedics, Inc., the world leader in PyroCarbon orthopedic devices, announces FDA approval to market the TITAN™ Modular Total Shoulder System. This newly designed system redefines modularity by providing multiple surgical solutions for shoulder arthroplasty with one implant system.

The TITAN Modular Total Shoulder System was developed in collaboration with Joseph Abboud, M.D, Phillip Duke, MB.BS, FRACS, FA(ORTH)A, William Geissler, M.D., Anand Murthi, M.D., Matthew Ramsey, M.D., and Mark Ross, MB.BS.FRACS(ORTH). "The years of experience in shoulder arthroplasty within this team shows through in the final design. Their passion and excitement during this development was great motivation for everyone here at Ascension Orthopedics. We are very fortunate to be able to work with such a knowledgeable and reputable group of surgeons," stated Guy Mayer, President and CEO of Ascension Orthopedics.  

The TITAN Modular Total Shoulder System offers a bone-preserving option for patients needing total or hemi shoulder arthroplasty. The modularity of the system allows the surgeon to independently select distal stems and proximal bodies that best match the patient's anatomy and bone quality. The system is fully interchangeable – allowing all primary and fracture bodies to be used with either press-fit or cemented stems. There are 26 humeral head sizing options available, which are based on published anthropomorphic data of over 300 human humeri to provide anatomic fit. The system also offers multiple glenoid options for patients needing total shoulder replacement.

"This is a very exciting time for Ascension Orthopedics. The FDA approval of the TITAN Modular Total Shoulder System marks a great milestone for us. We look forward to the success of this system as well as the future expansion planned for our shoulder line. Now we are able to offer patients a bone-preserving option for resurfacing, hemi, and total shoulder arthroplasty," commented Mayer. "We are preparing for both the International launch of the TITAN Modular Total Shoulder system next week at the 11th International Congress of Shoulder and Elbow Surgery in Edinburgh, Scotland as well as a U.S. launch on October 23 at the International Symposium on Shoulder and Elbow Trauma in Scottsdale, Arizona."
