Study Shows GraMedica’s HyProCure® Ankle Bone Stabilization Stent is Still the Superior Option

Feb. 18, 2016 – PRLog — Macomb, Mich.— A recent study published in the Journal of Foot and Ankle Surgery1 (JFAS)—a prestigious, peer-reviewed medical journal—showed the HyProCure® sinus tarsi stent to have a higher success rate over other “arthroereisis” devices.

Arthroereisis, or Type I, devices block or limit joint range-of-motion and have published removal rates of up to 100%2. While the JFAS study reports 22 percent of participants had the Type I device removed, it admits that a “lack of some follow up data was a limitation of the study” and “the incidence of implant removal could have been greater.” Researchers found the leading complicating factor was the size of the arthroereisis device implanted.

HyProCure, by GraMedica®, has been proven to have the highest success rate of all sinus tarsi devices, with a removal rate of approximately 6 percent3. Classified as a Type II device, HyProCure is placed into a naturally occurring space located between the ankle (talus) and heel bone (calcaneus), called the sinus tarsi. This is a stark contrast to the Type I arthroereisis devices that are only placed in the outer portion of the chamber, and function against, rather than with, the natural ankle bone motion. When indicated, HyProCure is routinely used in both pediatric and adult patients.
