Smith+Nephew launches shoulder replacement system


Devicemaker Smith+Nephew made its Aetos Shoulder System fully commercially available in the U.S.

The system can be used for both anatomic and reverse total shoulder arthroplasty, simplifying the operating room flow by including fewer steps for conversion and fewer instruments, according to a Feb. 13 news release from the company. 

The device is designed to restore range of motion, decrease arthritic shoulder pain and improve stability.

The Aetos Shoulder System received FDA 510(k) clearance in June.
