Summary of Indications for Use
The EXOGEN Ultrasound Bone Healing System is indicated for the non-invasive treatment of established non-unions excluding skull and vertebra. In addition, EXOGEN is indicated for accelerating the time to a healed fracture for fresh, closed, posteriorly displaced distal radius fractures and fresh, closed or Grade I open tibial diaphysis fractures in skeletally mature individuals when these fractures are orthopaedically managed by closed reduction and cast immobilization. There are no known contraindications for the EXOGEN device. Safety and effectiveness have not been established for individuals lacking skeletal maturity, pregnant or nursing women, patients with cardiac pacemakers, on fractures due to bone cancer, or on patients with poor blood circulation or clotting problems. Some patients may be sensitive to the ultrasound gel. Full prescribing information can be found in product labeling at www.exogen.com or by calling customer service at 1-800-836-4080. A non-union is considered to be established when the fracture site shows no visibly progressive signs of healing.
SUPARTZ FX is indicated for treatment of pain in osteoarthritis (OA) of the knee in patients who have failed to respond adequately to conservative non-pharmacologic therapy and simple analgesics, e.g., acetaminophen.
You should not use SUPARTZ FX if you have infections or skin diseases at the injection site or allergies to avian (bird) products (feathers and eggs). SUPARTZ FX is not approved for pregnant or nursing women, or children. Risks can include general knee pain, warmth and redness or pain at the injection site. Full prescribing information can be found at www.SupartzFX.com or by contacting customer service at 800-836-4080.
DUROLANE (3ml)-Europe: Symptomatic treatment of mild to moderate knee or hip osteoarthritis. In addition, DUROLANE has been approved for the symptomatic treatment associated with mild to moderate osteoarthritis pain in the ankle, shoulder, elbow, wrist, fingers and toes. DUROLANE SJ (1ml)-Europe: Symptomatic treatment associated with mild to moderate osteoarthritis pain in the ankle, elbow, wrist, fingers and toes. Both DUROLANE and DUROLANE SJ are also indicated for pain following joint arthroscopy in the presence of osteoarthritis within 3 months of the procedure. There are no known contraindications. You should not use DUROLANE if you have infections or skin disease at the injection site. DUROLANE has not been tested in pregnant or lactating women, or children.

OsteoAMP may be used in situations where an autograft is appropriate, such as spinal fusion procedures. It should be restricted to homologous use for the repair, replacement or reconstruction of musculoskeletal defects. Please see OsteoAMP instructions for use for complete list of contraindications, warnings, and precautions. Full prescribing information can be found in product labeling by contacting customer service at 1-800-836-4080. It is available in the US only.
SIGNAFUSE is a bone void filler device intended for use in bony voids or gaps that are not intrinsic to the stability of bony structure. These defects may be surgically created osseous defects or osseous defects created from traumatic injury to the bone. SIGNAFUSE is indicated to be packed gently into bony voids or gaps of the skeletal system (i.e., extremities, pelvis and posterolateral spine fusion procedures). SIGNAFUSE can also be used with autograft as a bone graft extender in the posterolateral spine. The device provides a bone void filler that is resorbed and replaced with host bone during the healing process. Full prescribing information can be found in product labeling by contacting customer service at 1-949-553-1717. It is available in the US only.
CellXtract is intended for use for aspiration of bone marrow or autologous blood using a standard piston syringe. Full prescribing information can be found in product labeling by contacting customer service at 1-800-836-4080.
GELSYN-3 is indicated for the treatment of pain in osteoarthritis (OA) of the knee in patients who have failed to respond adequately to conservative non-pharmacologic therapy and simple analgesics (e.g., acetaminophen). GELSYN-3 is not to be administered to patients with known hypersensitivity (allergy) to sodium hyaluronate preparations and should not be injected into the knees of patients having knee joint infections or skin diseases or infections in the area of the injection site.
