  • Detroit, MI (1888PressRelease) June 13, 2015 - GraMedica® and Promedon S.A. announced today that during the first week of June 2015, they sponsored and performed several surgeries on patients from underprivileged families suffering from talotarsal displacement in Lima, Peru. The surgeries were part of medical education training on the treatment of flatfoot and talotarsal pathologies using EOTTS with HyProCure.

    Instruction provided by Dr. Michael Forte-Malave included eight separate events over four days in Lima, Peru. Events training almost 80 orthopaedic and traumotologist surgeons included hands-on training during live surgeries of the Extra-Osseous TaloTarsal (EOTTS) procedure with HyProCure®. Together, GraMedica, Promedon S.A., and Graham International Implant Institute provided educational grants in support of these programs.

    One of the events was the Sociedad Peruana de Ortopedia y Traumatologia' (SPOT) 3rd annual scientific symposia. The program included a panel discussion moderated by Dra. Roxa Ruiz Wong, and case studies presented by Dr. Guillermo Zvietcovich Cornejo and Dr. Alexis Gonzalez Monteverde. Dr. Forte-Malave also provided a stimulating presentation on the diagnosis and treatment of hind foot and ankle failures.

    Left untreated, talotarsal joint dislocation can lead to serious, long-term foot, knee, hip, and back related issues that often require aggressive forms of surgery. The minimally invasive EOTTS with HyProCure® procedure has provided tens of thousands of pediatric and adult patients with immediate correction for congenital/acquired talotarsal joint dislocation.
