Zimmer (US) is looking to extend its leading share of the knee replacement market with a new system and instrumentation to cater for primary and revision patients with all levels of joint disease. The NexGen system, launched at the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons meeting in Orlando last week, combines the features of the Insall-Burstein II and MG II knee systems into a single system. This gives surgeons the opportunity to choose from a variety of options during surgery depending on the degree of joint damage, according to Dr Kim Bertin, assistant clinical professor of orthopaedic surgery at the University of Utah, who helped develop the system.
