Clinical results for Episealer® to be presented at orthopedic congress in Germany
Episurf Medical (Nasdaq: EPIS B) today announces that its implant technology and clinical results from the use of the Episealer® implant will be presented at the German workgroup for Arthroplasty’s 21st annual meeting in Düsseldorf, 6-7 December.
Dr. med. J. Holz has been invited to the meeting to hold a presentation on the topic “Small Implants – zu selten indiziert?”. The presentation is based on the clinical results from a European multicenter study with 100 patients in the “gap age”, 35-60 years old, that have undergone treatment of focal chondral defects using the knee implant Episealer®. The study shows excellent early clinical results from the treatment of focal symptomatic cartilage lesions on the femoral condyles and the trochlea area in the knee joint.
“We appreciate the continued strong interest in our treatment alternative Episealer®, and we appreciate that an increasing number of clinics in Germany are starting to offer our technology to their patients,” says Pål Ryfors, CEO Episurf Medical.
