Ortoma Hip Plan, a 3D pre-operative planning system for joint replacement, has been successfully evaluated in a clinical setting at Skåne University Hospital

Published August 30, 2013

Ortoma has a license agreement with Skåne University Hospital to use and evaluate Ortoma’s system for 3D pre-operative planning for total hip replacement (THR).
Dr Gunnar Flivik, orthopeadic surgeon at Skåne University Hospital, evaluated Ortoma’s 3D pre-operative planning system in a clinical setting while planning total hip replacement surgery. During the evaluation Dr Flivik used a conventional 2D system surgical planning tool and compared this conventional system with the newly developed 3D system, Ortoma Plan, for hip replacement.  Dr Flivik confirmed that the system worked successfully.  Dr Flivik recognized several advantages with 3D planning versus conventional 2D planning.
Dr Flivik said ‘From my clinical perspective view, a system such as Ortoma Plan has the potential for several clinical benefits. With the Ortoma system analysis and planning would be possible in real three dimension during pre-operative planning, which is not possible today with conventional 2D-systems during a total hip replacement (THR)’
The 3D planning system Ortoma Plan is part of the Ortoma Treatment Solutions (OTS) which is a complete surgical planning and guiding system for joint replacement under development.

About Ortoma AB (publ)
Ortoma AB develops surgical systems for the planning and positioning of implants in hip, knee and spinal surgery. The purpose of the company’s surgical system, Ortoma Treatment Solution™ (OTS) is to enable surgeons to accurately measure and plan 3D surgery for the placement of joint implants, and during surgery, to optimally position the implant in the patient. Ortoma’s surgical system is aimed at providing better patient outcomes, fewer complications and less follow-up surgeries – and thus better long-term survival rates for implants. OTS is a system that is easily integrated into the processes and routines currently used in surgery, thereby increasing efficiency. Globally, more than 7.5 million orthopedic procedures are performed each year where OTS could be used in hip, knee and spinal surgery. In Sweden, around 42,000 surgical procedures were performed last year, involving hip, knee or spinal surgery. Ortoma’s B shares are listed on Nasdaq First North Growth Market Stockholm.
