Episurf Medical secures CE-certification of another product for personalized treatment of knee joint damage: Episealer® Trochlea.

Episurf Medical has secured CE certification of its next product, Episealer® Trochlea. Certification means the company can commence the marketing and sales process in Europe. The product is intended to treat cartilage injury behind the patella. It will now be subject to a controlled product launch (CPL).
“Arthrosis is a growing problem, and there is a major need for new types of therapy. We now have two mutually complementary products on the market, and accordingly can address this growing need with our unique, personalized technology,” commented Nina Bake, CEO of Episurf Medical.

Stockholm, 2014-10-10 13:00 CEST (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) —

Episurf Medical’s new product, Episealer® Trochlea, is based on the company’s personalized implants. It is intended to treat cartilage defects in the area behind the patella (kneecap). The product now has CE-certification and we will start offering it to selected clinics immediately, via a CPL. The company’s first product, its personalized Episealer® Femoral Condyle, has been in a CPL for the past year.

“Over the past year, we’ve affiliated major clinics and key opinion leaders to the ongoing CPL of our first product, Episealer® Femoral Condyle. Accordingly, we’ve already secured valuable contacts and launched a model that we can also use to bring this new product to market,” continued Nina Bake.

To date, 15 clinics in nine countries have affiliated to the CPL, which commenced in fall 2013. In recent months, the company has also established an international marketing and sales function, with three experienced professionals. These individuals are now gaining another product to offer clinics around Europe.

In surgery performed to date, patients rapidly regain mobility and freedom from previous pain. The first two products target patients with cartilage injury in the knee joint and the area behind the patella. This treatment is addressing a growing need, with a rising patient population experiencing knee pain and limited mobility, who often go on to develop arthrosis.

Episurf Medical has developed unique, patented technology to manufacture personalized implants and surgical tools to treat injury to human joints. The implants replace areas of damaged cartilage and skeletal tissue.
