Wright Medical is expanding its foot and ankle portfolio, after securing exclusive worldwide distribution rights to AM Surgical's current and future lines of endoscopic instrumentation for minimally-invasive soft tissue release procedures. The 10-year agreement will see Arlington, Tennessee-based Wright offer in the US - with immediate effect - AM Surgical's EPF (plantar fascia release), UDIN (interdigital nerve decompression) and EGR (gastrocnemius release) systems. Wright plans to commercialise the products internationally in 2008. The devices address the most commonly performed soft tissue release and decompression procedures in the foot and ankle market, said the company.
