Yverdon-les-Bains, Switzerland – Symbios would like to share with you an important recent publication on PubMed to support Symbios ORIGIN® PS knee prothesis.
This publication, “Custom total knee arthroplasty combined with personalized alignment grants 94% patient satisfaction at minimum follow‑up of 2 years” is online since 19 Jan. 2023 and has Dr. L. Gousopoulos, Dr. Bonnin, Dr Ait Si-Selmi and Prof. Tibesku as main authors.
140 ORIGIN® PS operated patients completed pre- and post-operative PROMs (Oxford Knee Score (OKS), Forgotten Joint Score (FJS), Knee injury and Osteoarthritis Outcome Score (KOOS), Western Ontario and McMaster osteoarthritis index (WOMAC)) as well as overall level of satisfaction. The level of satisfaction and PASS (the number of knees that attained a patient acceptable symptom state) for the different PROMs were reported as numbers and percentages.
In this study clinical results were compared to the averages scores for PROMs in a recent systemic reviews and/or meta-analysis (performed by extracting available data from scientific papers) on off the shelf (OTS) total Knees.
What are the main outcomes:
What does this means:
The paper supports the following statement:
The Symbios ORIGIN® PS reports higher patient satisfaction scores compared to OTS TKA. This is due to the individualization of the 3 compartments (medial, lateral and patellafemoral) in the knee combined with the alignment strategy. The aim of Symbios ORIGIN PS prothesis is to match the anatomical shape and size of a patient's knee. This potentially reduces the risk of bone implant mismatch compared to the OTS TKA. It restores a patient's constitutional alignment with predefined limits.
