AVINENT Digital Health market opening
Avinent Implant System
AVINENT Digital Health, the AVINENT corporation’s new medical line dedicated to the manufacture of customized prostheses for the replacement of bone structures for the human body, is undergoing an expansion process. The team that forms the company’s new line, currently focusing on cranio-maxillofacial surgery, has been working with 17 hospitals or clinical centers over the past two years. The launch of the solution last November 2016 was greatly received by the press, which especially highlighted its customization possibilities and those of collaborative work between technicians and doctors.
AVINENT’s innovative project is now experiencing full growth after the company presented it to more than 30 hospitals and medical institutions (more than 80 doctors already have first-hand knowledge of AVINENT Digital Health). AVINENT has already carried out work for 17 of these centers, undertaking 106 cases of bone reconstruction, 89 of which are related to cranio-maxillofacial surgery. Collaboration highlights include those with Hospital Vall d’Hebron, Hospital Clínic and Hospital Universitari Germans Trias i Pujol in Barcelona, Hospital Universitari Joan XXIII, in Tarragona or the integral care management service of Guadalajara in Castilla-La Mancha, among others. One of the service’s most outstanding features is the work between doctors and technicians to design together the prostheses and obtain the best possible result for patients in terms of surgical facilities and final esthetic quality.
Excellent results nationally
ADH’s new service and its excellent results to date have given AVINENT great renown in the medical sector. AVINENT Digital Health manager Xavier Camí highlights this innovative service’s excellent performance, especially at a national level: “The truth is we’ve enjoyed very good acceptance and are working flat out. The doctors we’ve contacted are very pleased with what we do and how we do it.”
Particularly important has been the partnership between AVINENT and the Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Service of Hospital Vall d’Hebron in Barcelona, with which 60 maxillofacial cases have been successfully completed using the new joint virtual planning method between doctors and technicians and 3D titanium printing. In addition, 29 of these cases were planned by taking into account the dental implants as well as customized prosthesis. The excellent results of this partnership and its positive impact on the health of various patients led to much media interest in the project last November, when ADH was presented at the Vall d’Hebron facilities.
Internationalization is next challenge
The reach of AVINENT Digital Health is today especially important at a Spanish level. During the last few months, however, AVINENT has presented the new service at various international congresses related to the fields of 3D surgery and the digital technologies applied to these types of surgeries. The International Dental Show (IDS), to be held in Cologne, Germany, will soon be the stage upon which the company will present the project’s new innovations to doctors from all corners of Europe. According to Xavier Camí: “Our current objective at an international level is to provide visibility to the brand and promote the service, which has already been very positively surprising. This is a necessary first step in order to start operating within this framework more fluently at a later date.”
There were outstanding audience numbers at major conferences throughout 2016, such as the European Association for Maxillo-Facial Surgery (EACMFS 2016), held in London (UK), and the Materialise Mimics Innovation Conference 2016, which took place in Leuven (Belgium). As regards Spain, AVINENT recently presented the new service at the 25th Congress of the Societat Catalano-Balear de Cirurgia Maxil·lofacial i Oral.
New digital future dimension
AVINENT Digital Health is a new service with an extensive catalog of fully customized solutions aimed at helping medical professionals improve the quality of life of patients. AVINENT’s production processes and products have been certified according to the medical standards issued by health bodies and authorities, such as TÜV Rheinland, a member of the United Nations Global Compact, the Spanish Agency for Health Products of Spain’s Ministry of Health and the Government of Catalonia’s Ministry of Health.
