Restor3d, Inc, a provider of patient-specific musculoskeletal implants based in Durham, North Carolina, USA, launched its additively manufactured foot and ankle products during the American College of Foot & Ankle Surgeons (ACFAS) Annual Conference held in Tampa, Florida. The launch included the patient-specific Total Talus Replacement System and the line extension to the Kinos Axiom Total Ankle Replacement System, the Kinos X-Stem, Tall featuring a right angle drill for controlled stem preparation.

“Restor3d is dedicated to providing personalised care to every patient,” stated Ken Gall, co-founder and Chief Commercial Officer of restor3d. “Launching the Total Talus Replacement is a critical step towards distinctive patient-specific solutions for treating complex foot and ankle pathologies. The system is a culmination of innovation in design automation driven by AI, advanced 3D printing manufacturing of cobalt-chrome alloy, and is backed by robust clinical evidence.”

As well as tailoring each piece to individual anatomy, Restor3d utilises Laser Beam Powder Bed Fusion (PBF-LB) Additive Manufacturing to incorporate complex porous structures that accommodate tissue growth. This process includes preparing the build files, loading, additively manufacturing from build plates, unloading the AM machines, in-processing monitoring, and lot acceptance.

Jason Miller, DPM of Paoli, PA, commented, “Restor3d’s patient-specific Total Talus Replacement is the solution for enhanced personalisation in the most comprehensive indications on the market for treatment of talar dysfunction, providing optional suture attachments for soft tissue reconstruction.”

The addition of the X-Stem, Tall Tibial component to the Kinos Axiom Total Ankle portfolio is expected to be the first of many new offerings restor3d will be releasing this year.

“Without violating the hindfoot or tibial anterior cortex through your anterior approach, the X-Stem provides enhanced tibial fixation through the height of the stem featuring TIDAL Technology,” shared Dr John Lewis, MD of Louisville, Kentucky.
