Executive Summary

Ascension Orthopedics Inc. is using pyrolytic carbon-based materials, the industry standard for heart valves, in a new way--as a material for silicone rubber spacers for small-joint-hand, upper extremity, and foot--repair. Unlike rubber spacers, which ease pain, pyrocarbon joint replacements can also support biomechanical loads and restore function.
