Stryker Europe launched its ShapeMatch Cutting Guides for use with the company’s Triathlon Total Knee System. The single-use ShapeMatch Cutting Guides are designed and manufactured from patient-specific 3D imaging data that is derived from MRI or CT scans.
ShapeMatch Technology utilizes proprietary 3D imaging software to develop a customized pre-operative surgical plan for each patient. Upon surgeon review and approval, this plan is used to develop cutting guides for the individual patient. ShapeMatch Technology is only available for use with Stryker’s Triathlon Knee System, which has demonstrated the best performance among the most frequently used brands of total knee implants as measured by revision rates in the National Joint Registry of England and Wales.
