Leader Biomedical adds new Joint Care Accessories

Amsterdam | 30 July 2019 | Leader Biomedical adds new accessories to its Joint Care Reconstruction portfolio with VarioPlug® resorbable, biodegradable cement restrictor and Pulse Lavage disposable wound irrigation system. 

VarioPlug® is a gelatin based flexible, biodegradable cement restrictor for orthopaedic use. It is designed to occlude the medullary cavity before the introduction of bone cement. VarioPlug® prevents cement penetration in the diaphysis, facilitates cement pressurisation during implantation of prosthesis and fully resorbs within a few days.

By adding the Pulse Lavage sterile fully disposable wound irrigation system, Leader Biomedical expands its range of offerings for effective irrigation and wound debridement of necrotic tissue without disrupting underlying healthy tissue. The Pulse Lavage is fitted with a quick locking clip to securely hold attachments, a built-in battery pack (easily removed for safe disposal), and ergonomic handle. The kit comes with a long coaxial tip for extra reach.

Leader Biomedical’s Joint Care Reconstruction portfolio offers targeted solutions for replacement and revision, combines proven and time-tested designs with the latest in bearing and coating technologies. It includes systems for both total hip replacements and revisions for hip fractures with VarioNXT®and VarioClassic™ Hip Systems as well as a range of C-ment® and Genta C-ment® PMMA bone cements with and without Gentamicin. Further, this portfolio offers eTiss® void fillers for bone regeneration in revision surgeries. Our eTiss®allografts are processed and cleaned with our proprietary eCOO®Technology utilising super critical carbon dioxide (scCO2).

Increasing the portfolio with two more complementary products fits with the company’s ongoing commitment to contribute to the betterment of the global healthcare community thus extending the reach of patients and caregivers by improving global access to reliable, targeted therapeutic solutions and new technologies.
