Enabling a surgeon to make evidence-based decisions regarding improved soft-tissue balance, use of VERASENSE has shown statistically significant improvements in patient-reported outcome measurements (PROMs) and physical therapy performance during early post-op recovery and rehabilitation for TKA.
VERASENSE™ Has Shown Statistically Significant Improvement With PROMs And Physical Therapy Performance
VERASENSE™ VS. MANUAL TKA BALANCING
57 Consecutive Sensor-Assisted vs. Consecutive Manual
All cases were performed by the same surgeon with the same implant system.
There were no significant cohort demographic or co-morbidity differences.
VERASENSE: highly statistically-significant improvement across all outcome measurements
- Faster improvement in PROMS (KSS, Oxford)
- Significantly higher Clinic ROM and improvement in Clinic ROM from Pre-op (P=0.002 and P<0.001, respectively)
- More patients achieved active deep flexion during physical therapy (>115 DEG.) 52% VERASENSE VS. 42% MANUAL
AN INCREASE IN PHYSICAL THERAPY PERFORMANCE AND SHORT-TERM OUTCOMES
DURING RECOVERY AND REHAB SHOULD TRANSLATE TO SHORTER TREATMENTS AND
LOWER OVERALL COSTS IN THE COMPLETE TKA EPISODE OF CARE.
