WARSAW, Ind., Jan. 03, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — OrthoPediatrics Corp. (NASDAQ:KIDS), a company exclusively focused on advancing the field of pediatric orthopedics, is pleased to announce the launch of Titanium PediPlates®, the Company’s 24th surgical system. The titanium implant system expands OrthoPediatrics’ already comprehensive physeal tethering offering and includes both O-Plates and I-Plates as well as solid and cannulated low-profile screws. As a market leader in guided growth, OrthoPediatrics’ PediPlates technology harnesses the power of the growth plate through a simple, minimally invasive, and reversible tethering technique.
Joe Hauser, OrthoPediatrics’ Vice President of Trauma and Deformity Correction, noted that titanium PediPlates provide another correction option to pediatric orthopedic surgeons worldwide. “Adding a titanium offering to OrthoPediatrics’ market leading PediPlates physeal tethering franchise expands physicians’ treatment options, especially in patients who have a nickel allergy. The launch of our 24th surgical system strengthens our strategy to provide pediatric orthopedic surgeons with superior options for treating children.”
The PediPlates® system, which includes the I-Plate, O-Plate, and Delta Plate, provides a physeal tethering technique that does not disrupt the integrity of the physis, or growth plate. It features simple plate and screw constructs that span the growth center and restrain the physis by inhibiting growth where the plates and screws are applied. The system also features stainless steel plates and screws, which provide excellent strength, resistance to breakage, and ease of removal.
