Live Webcast: Knee Replacement Featuring Mobile Bearing Knee Design From Zimmer

Zimmer Introduces the NexGen® LPS-Flex Mobile and LPS-Mobile Bearing Knees Featured in a Live Webcast, March 5, 2009 at 7:00 PM EST

TUCSON, AZ--(Marketwire - February 25, 2009) - Zimmer, a manufacturer of orthopaedic prosthetics, will air an OR-Live webcast on March 5th at 7:00pm featuring the NexGen® LPS-Flex Mobile Bearing Knee.

This new device provides an anteriorly positioned pivot near the entry point of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL), replicating the anatomic center of rotation. This leads to lower patellofemoral forces that cause anterior knee pain, patellar subluxation and dislocation.

Dr. John Maltry of the Tucson Orthopedic Institute will perform the procedure with moderating assistance from Dr. Todd Sekundiak of the Creighton University Medical Center. "The extended posterior flange of this device safely accommodates tibiofemoral contact of flexion up to 155°," says Dr. Maltry. As an extra feature, viewers are encouraged to participate in a live email forum with Dr. Maltry. He will answer pertinent questions concerning the procedure during the webcast.

Those interested in participating live can also receive an e-mail or text message reminder about the event by going to the webcast site and selecting the reminder option.
