DePuy Synthes introduces fully integrated shoulder arthroplasty system

Aug. 19, 2021

DePuy Synthes, a division of Johnson & Johnson, has introduced the INHANCE, a fully integrated shoulder arthroplasty system. 

The system is designed with an intuitive stemless-first surgical approach that aligns with how surgeons approach patient care.  The INHANCE Shoulder System offers surgeons the ability to seamlessly transition from stemless to stemmed implants during surgical procedures. 

There are many reasons surgeons may need to transition to a different surgical treatment option during shoulder arthroplasty procedures, including humeral bone quality and severity of glenoid bone loss, or the extent of rotator cuff deficiency. The system allows surgeons to treat a broad range of cases by providing an intelligently-designed implant offering that is both streamlined and comprehensive, and also features unique interoperative flexibility, addressing a critical unmet clinical need. The common instrumentation of the INHANCE Shoulder System also facilitates greater OR efficiency.

This new class of shoulder system also features: 

  • Reusable instrumentation optimized for efficiency with only two instrument cases for stemless and stemmed anatomic procedures
  • A comprehensive size range of anatomic stemless and stemmed inlay humeral implants that share a common geometrical shape to easily fixate to the humerus
  • A unique circular anatomic glenoid component compatible with any sized humeral head, and the ONE STEP PREP Glenoid Reamer that reduces the number of surgical steps, eliminating the need to separately ream the backside of the implant, drill the central hole, and drill the peripheral holes.

The INHANCE Shoulder System’s implants are designed to preserve bone, provide immediate and long-term fixation, and facilitate intra-operative flexibility while simplifying preparation for various surgical treatment options.
