The Episealer® implant highlighted in three scientific publications
Episurf Medical AB’s (NASDAQ: EPIS B) Episealer® knee implant has recently been discussed in three peer-reviewed scientific publications. All three publications; “Current surgical options for the treatment of symptomatic articular cartilage lesions of the knee” (Biant, L.C. et al., Orthopaedics and Trauma, 2019. 33(2): 127-132), “Focal knee resurfacing” (Nahas, S., et al., Orthopaedics and Trauma, 2019. 33(2): 133-139) and “What future in the treatment of osteochondral knee defects?” (D’Ambrosi, R., et al., Annals of Translational Medicine, 2018, 6, Suppl 2, S100) discuss various treatment alternatives for patients in the so-called treatment gap, where the patient typically is too old for conservative biological treatment, but not yet a candidate for knee replacement surgery. In all of these publications various treatment alternatives are discussed and the Episealer® is highlighted as a promising technology for the future given its early clinical success and low revision rate.
“It is highly interesting that these publications are published just recently. We are experiencing an increasing interest in the gap patients as new technologies offer new treatment options. We intend to be a leader in this market segment. It is also encouraging that the lack of a golden standard in the treatment algorithm is highlighted in scientific publications. Our strategy is designed for taking a leading role in this development, and our goal is to establish Episealer® as a standardised treatment alternative. These publications again emphasise the fact that this is an unmet clinical need, and our opinion is that Episealer® can make a significant difference for these patients” says Pål Ryfors, CEO Episurf Medical.
