Lund, Sweden, 19.00 CET, 18 September 2019 – BONESUPPORT HOLDING AB, listed on Nasdaq Stockholm – an emerging leader in orthobiologics for the management of bone voids announced today that health economic data was presented during the EBJIS conference entitled “The economic burden of osteomyelitis in the UK”. Data shows that the number of patient visits after surgery and hospital time can be shortened using CERAMENT® G.
The analysis showed that single stage procedure with the addition of CERAMENT G or CERAMENT V at Nuffield Orthopaedic Hospital reduced patients stay in hospital by 35 percent or over six days less per patient, on average, in the treatment of osteomyelitis.
“Allowing patients to return home a week earlier is not only good for the hospital but more importantly it is better for patients.” said Emil Billbäck, CEO of BONESUPPORT™.
The data is based on an analysis of more than 25,000 patients in the UK who were surgically treated for chronic osteomyelitis during 2013-2017. The patients were followed two years before and two years after surgery. The aim of the analysis was to compare the clinical and financial results of Nuffield Orthopedic Hospital’s care model including antibiotic eluting CERAMENT with the care provided at other hospitals in England.
The data was presented at the 38th EBJIS (EUROPEAN BONE AND JOINT INFECTIONS SOCIETY) conference September 12-13. The full analysis is expected to be published shortly.
