DePuy receives FDA premarket supplemental approval for TRUMATCH system

DePuy Orthopaedics Inc. has received premarket supplement approval from the FDA for use of TRUMATCH Personalized Solutions with DePuy’s SIGMA RP Knee System. The system was previously cleared in Aug. 2011 for the SIGMA Fixed-Bearing Knee System, making DePuy the only orthopedic company to offer personalized instrumentation for use with both rotating platform and fixed bearing knee prostheses, according to a company release.


“We’re very excited about the opportunity to offer patients the world’s leading mobile bearing knee system, the SIGMA RP Knee, with TRUMATCH Personalized Solutions,” Andrew Ekdahl, president of DePuy Orthopaedics, stated in the release. “This approval means patients can now benefit from precise implant positioning, enabled by TRUMATCH Solutions, and the proven performance of both the SIGMA RP and Fixed Bearing Knee Systems, while increasing efficiency in the operating room,” he stated.

TRUMATCH Personalized Solutions, according to the release, is a surgical instrumentation and computer software system designed to aid both knee implant positioning and procedure efficiency.
