Wright Medical (NASDAQ:WMGI) today announced that it has received premarket approval (PMA) from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for AUGMENT® Injectable Bone Graft for the same clinical indications as AUGMENT® Bone Graft.  AUGMENT Injectable is a combination product consisting of recombinant human platelet derived growth factor (rhPDGF-BB) and a blend of Type I collagen and Beta tri-calcium phosphate, which provides a clinically proven and safe and effective alternative to autograft for use in hindfoot and ankle fusion in an easy to use flowable formulation.

As quoted in the press release:

Robert Palmisano, president and chief executive officer, stated, “Building on the commercial and clinical success of AUGMENT Injectable in the Canadian and Australian markets, this important milestone allows Wright to expand our proven AUGMENT franchise and meet the needs of foot and ankle surgeons in the U.S. with a safe and effective alternative to autograft that includes significantly improved handling characteristics to enable easier and more precise delivery to the fusion site.  In addition to the significantly improved handling characteristics with AUGMENT Injectable, one of the key differentiators continues to be the strength of the clinical evidence.  Our approved PMA supplement for AUGMENT Injectable builds upon the existing body of evidence supporting the safety and effectiveness of AUGMENT Bone Graft and leverages clinical data from the U.S. and Canada for the injectable formulation.”
