This article was originally published in Clinica
Wright Medical (Arlington, Tennessee) has boosted its orthopaedic product portfolio with the acquisition of the Rayhack system for complex wrist reconstruction. The system, for which Wright paid an undisclosed amount, consists of procedure-specific bone-cutting guides and fixation plates that are designed to apply shortening and repositioning of the radius and the ulna in patients with wrist arthritis or Kienbock’s disease. The technology was originally developed by orthopaedic hand specialist John Rayhack. Wright said the system will be made available to US orthopaedic surgeons immediately and will go to the international market in early 2009.
