Global Regenerative Trade

GOB Team conducts two successful medical trainings in Uzsoki Hospital, Hungary!

January and March were very successful months for Global OrthoBiologic, Inc. (GOB). Our team conducted two stem cell therapy demonstrations and hands-on training in the Orthopedic-Traumatology Department of Uzsoki Hospital in Budapest, Hungary. This is one of the centers of cartilage repair surgery in central Europe.

The trainings were organized with the help of the Hungarian distribution company, BioSan, represented by Mr. Onoriu Manolescuand Mr. Gabor Vestergombi. The Uzsoki hospital was represented by their top surgeon Prof. Dr. Laszlo Hangody. He developed the mosaicplasty surgery technique, in which cartilage lesions are treated with autologous cartilage. The Orthopedic-Traumatology department performs over 3000 elective orthopedic and over 1500 trauma inpatient operations annually, as one of Hungary’s largest orthopedic departments.

January 11, 2016. Prof. Dr. Laszlo Hangody and Dr. DzihanAbazovic (GOB scientific advisory board member) performed the first BMAC procedure in Hungary. Our patient was Bence Batik, one of the players in the Hungarian First League. The vast majority of the surgeons that watched the demonstration by Dr. Abazovic exclaimed how impressed they were with the GOB products and the procedure. Dr. Abazovic also presented some of the latest information on the science of stem cell therapy as well as numerous examples of his own successful results from the application of stem cells in bone marrow aspirate concentrate (BMAC).

March 31, 2016. Dr. Abazovic demonstrated anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction (ACL reconstruction) on one of the football players of the Hungarian national team – Tamas Priskin.This is surgical tissue graft replacement of the anterior cruciate ligament, located in the knee, to restore its function after anterior cruciate ligament injury.

The GOB Team would like to thank Uzsoki Hospital for their generous hospitality, and the BioSan Company for providing us the opportunity to work with Prof. Hangody. He will be in the scientific committee of the the 59th annual congress of the Hungarian Orthopaedic Society (http://www.asszisztencia.hu/mot/2016/koszonto.htm)and he is more than excited that he will have the opportunity to share the GOB training results and the use of the Magellan BMAC system in front of all his colleagues on the congress. Annually this congress is fully attended by hundreds of surgeons from Hungary and other countries all over Europe.

After the successful trainings, GOB and BioSan agreed to continue their successful business cooperation. BioSan will become the Hungarian distributor of Global OrthoBiologic, Inc and will do whatever it takes to implement the entire GOB product portfolio in Hungary.

THE VIVOSTAT® SYSTEM

The uniqueness of the Vivostat® system is a novel patented biotechnological process that enables reliable and reproducible preparation of autologous Fibrin Sealant or Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF®) without using cryoprecipitation and without the need for a separate thrombin component.

THE FULLY AUTOMATED VIVOSTAT® SYSTEM CONSISTS OF THREE COMPONENTS:

  • The Processor Unit is a non-sterile, reusable, fully automated device that controls the biochemical process.
  • The Processor Unit is used to process the patient’s blood and prepare the Vivostat® Fibrin Sealant or Vivostat PRF® solution.
Vivostat Processor Product
  • The Processor Unit is operated by a single button and a display keeps the nurse informed of the remaining process time and status at all times. No specific installation is required and the large wheelbase makes moving it easy.
  • The Processor Unit can be located in any room or corridor in the operating department. It is most often placed centrally between the operating theatres. This way one Processor Unit can supply a number of operating theatres.
  • In approx.  25 min a concentrated fibrin sealant or PRF® solution is prepared from the patient’s whole blood.
  • The Applicator Unit is a non-sterile, reusable, fully automated device that controls the delivery of the Vivostat® Fibrin Sealant or Vivostat PRF®.
Vivostat Processor Product
  • The large display and integrated microprocessor automatically primes the Spraypen® and informs the surgeon of the remaining volume of fibrin sealant/PRF® throughout the entire process.
  • Different spray modes can be selected depending on the actual procedure or area to be covered. Like the Processor Unit it has a large wheelbase and can easily be moved if required.
  • The disposable set comprises of two parts: A Preparation Kit used to prepare the fibrin sealant or PRF® solution before surgery, and an Application Kit used to activate and apply the fibrin sealant/PRF® solution.

 

  • Preparation Kit
    The Preparation Kit contains the specially designed Preparation Unit – a sterile disposable device in which the patient’s blood is collected, the biochemical process carried out, and the fibrin sealant or PRF® solution harvested.

 

  • The Application Kit
    The Application Kit contains the Spraypen®1 and all other items required to prepare the system for the delivery of the fibrin sealant or PRF® solution. The Spraypen® is a sterile, disposable, hand held device which delivers the fibrin sealant or PRF® solution to the tissue. The revolutionary and patented design offers the surgeon unparalleled freedom in controlling the application unlike any other product on the market today.

 

1Besides the Spraypen®, the Vivostat® system offers different types of applicators, e.g. the Endoscopic Applicator. For a full list of application devices click here

Three easy steps to prepare Vivostat® Fibrin Sealant or Vivostat PRF®

1. Draw blood from the Patient

Fibrin Prep With Blood Inside

At the time of surgery or up to 24 hours before1, citrate (supplied with the kit) is added to the Preparation Unit. 120 ml of the patient’s own blood is then drawn into the same unit.

2. Process the patient’s blood

Vivostat Processor 800

The Preparation Unit is placed in the Processor Unit. At the touch of a button the process starts; after approx. 25 minutes, an autologous fibrin or PRF® solution is ready for use. No thrombin or bovine components are added to the blood at any time.

3. Load the Applicator Unit and spray

Vivostat Display Applicator

The Fibrin or PRF® solution is easily loaded into the Applicator Unit and applied to the surgical site using one of the unique application devices (e.g. the Spraypen). 1This depends on the type of kit being used. Always consult the “Instructions for Use” supplied with the kit to determine the correct preparation.

The following video illustrates how to prepare and apply autologous fibrin sealant.
