November 15, 2007 – The Kensey Nash Corporation said this week its first commercial product kit shipment of its proprietary bone void filler OsseoFit Porous Tissue Matrix to Biomet Sports Medicine, Inc., the sports medicine subsidiary of Biomet Inc.
The product kit will be used to expand the clinical use of the OsseoFit device beyond a select group of sites that have had access to the product to date. The company says preliminary surgeon response to the OsseoFit Porous Tissue Matrix product has been very positive and having additional product for commercial distribution will allow greater surgeon and clinical exposure.
OsseoFit Porous Tissue Matrix is an implant manufactured from Kensey Nash’s Porous Tissue Matrix technology, which creates foamed scaffolds suited for tissue engineering applications. The OsseoFit Porous Tissue Matrix product utilizes several resorbable biomaterials including a proprietary collagen formulation, synthetic polymer and ceramic. This design creates a structure that is optimized for specific types of bone void filling indications.
