TRUMATCH® Graft Cage –Long Bone

The TRUMATCH Graft Cage – Long Bone is a 3D-printed personalized resorbable implant for treatment of critical-sized segmental defects.

The TRUMATCH Graft Cage – Long Bone is designed to:

  • Retain morselized bone graft and/or bone graft substitute in its desired location during healing
  • Allow nutrient access and bone restoration
  • Allow for use with common rigid fixation devices (intramedullary nails, plates/screws, and/or external fixation devices.)

Features & Benefits

Provides Graft Retention

  • Interstitial shelf designed to prevent bone graft collapse1
  • Made of slow resorbing PCL, which has a slow resorption rate of 2-4 years, and hence provides graft retention and structure for the healing period2
  • Overall construct mimics bone shape

Allows Nutrient Access

  • Tube-in-tube design supports nutrient access to bone graft circumferentially and through the intramedullary canal1
  • Open outer mesh design allows angiogenesis and provide an envelope to contain the graft within the defect1
Promotes Mineralization

Promotes Mineralization

  • Coated with osteoconductive calcium phosphate to promote mineralization at the surface of the implant and conversion to bone1,3

Indication Statement

The DePuy Synthes TRUMATCH® Graft Cage – Long Bone implant is indicated for use in skeletally mature adults and adolescents (12-21)* for maintaining the relative position of morselized bone graft and/or bone graft substitutes within bone voids or surgical resections in the nonarticular regions of the humerus, femur, or tibia.  The implant must be used in conjunction with traditional, rigid fixation.

*The TRUMATCH Graft Cage – Long Bone implant is indicated for use in skeletally immature adolescents, only if the device is not used across open physes.

The TRUMATCH Graft Cage – Long Bone implant is for patients only when the treating physician deems there is appropriate time to conduct surgical planning, personalization, and manufacturing of a patient specific device.  When considering the use of the TRUMATCH Graft Cage – Long Bone, please ensure that you request information on the amount of time needed to manufacture and ship the device from your local DePuy Synthes sales representative.  There is a delay between when the device is ordered and when the device can be delivered.

Contraindications
The TRUMATCH Graft Cage – Long Bone is contraindicated for:

  • Use in bone voids or surgical resections that include articular surfaces.
  • Use in load bearing applications where no traditional, rigid fixation is present.
  • Use in bone voids or surgical resections that use the device across open physes.
  • Use in the spine.
  • Use in patients with a compromised ability for bone healing (e.g. active infections, poor bone quality, insufficient blood supply, etc.) 
  • Use in patients requiring acute/emergent treatment due to the time requirements to personalize, manufacture, and deliver the device.
