Episealer® clinical outcome will be presented at the 2018 world congress of the International Cartilage Repair Society (ICRS) in Macau

The abstract Successful clinical results of a focal individualised mini-metal implant for focal cartilage lesions in the knee” by T. Spalding, J. Holz, M. Lind, K. Eriksson, P. Verdonk and P. Emans, has been accepted as a poster presentation at the ICRS World Congress in Macao, China, which will take place at April 9-12, 2018. The clinical outcome for patients in the “gap age” 35-60 years old, that have undergone treatment of focal chondral defects using the mini-metal implant Episealer® is presented.

The abstract concludes excellent early clinical results in the treatment of focal full thickness symptomatic cartilage lesions on the femoral condyles or trochlea with a second-generation patient specific metal implant.

“We welcome this initiative from a group of European Episealer® users, and exposure at this global congress goes very well with our global expansion strategy,” says Pål Ryfors, CEO of Episurf Medical.
