The HemiCAP® technology was designed for patients who want to continue working, keep their active lifestyles and have a need for joint preserving treatments.
For the toe, many of these patients are looking for a treatment option that “bridges the gap” between
a cheilectomy and a Fusion Plate or Total Toe Replacement.
Instead of a one piece implant with a stem built in, the HemiCAP® is 2 components that consist of a cap and screw that mate together via taper lock.
Stemmed implants have been shown to loosen, whereas the HemiCAP® screw system has been a stable construct with no reported loosening.
With the HemiCAP®, patients have reported outstanding pain relief, rapid recovery times and significant range of motion improvements in multi-center studies. The HemiCAP® procedure may also be performed on an outpatient basis.
Resurfacing a joint with a HemiCAP® implant is a much less destructive procedure than a total joint replacement. The idea behind the HemiCAP® system is to prevent further damage to the joint while maintaining the patient’s native anatomy and motion. The HemiCAP® simply places a smooth surface in the place where the cartilage has worn away — imagine a filling for a tooth cavity. It is a contoured surface that goes over the area of damaged cartilage and is designed to protect the remaining (healthy) cartilage in the joint.
The HemiCAP® implants intraoperatively recreate the patients' articular cartilage surface convexities. This unique mapping technology enables the surgeon to place the implant so the implant becomes part of the patient's natural curvatures - both in the medial to lateral aspect as well as the anterior to posterior plane.
RegJoint™ is indicated for arthroplasties in small joints in hand and foot for patients suffering of rheumatoid arthritis or osteoarthritis. The specific target joints are metatarsal I-V, V (MTI I-V) in foot, carpometacarpal (CMC I) and metacarpophalangeal II-V (MCP II-V) joints in hand.
