First Attune® Revision Procedure in Ireland

PEI is delighted to announce the first Attune® Revision procedure in Ireland, which was implanted on Wednesday, 26th September 2018.
 
The surgery was carried out by Prof. James Harty, Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon, at the South Infirmary Victoria University Hospital, in Cork.
 
Prior to surgery, the patient, a 62-year-old male, was experiencing problems with his primary knee implant which he received some years previously. This included a fixed flexion contracture of 10o, and the inability to bend the knee beyond 60o, resulting in the need for a revision procedure.
 
Prof Harty has been an Attune® Primary Knee user since 2013 and was the first surgeon in Ireland to use the Attune® knee system. It’s fitting that Prof Harty was the first surgeon in Ireland to implant the Attune® Revision system also.
 
The surgery went very well and the patient was discharged after 3 days. Prof Harty was very happy with the outcome, commenting that he “wouldn’t get such a good outcome with any other revision knee system”. 
 
Supporting Prof Harty on the day were Katherine Murphy and Eibhlis O’Shea (PEI Surgical) and Chris Bainbridge (Revision Knee Specialist, DePuy Synthes UK/Ire).
