EXOGEN gives you a reason to rethink the way you treat fractures. Studies have found that EXOGEN ultrasound bone stimulation may speed healing of indicated* fresh fractures and may help heal non-union* fractures. EXOGEN is the only device with a fresh fracture indication* for radius fractures and tibia fractures. For stubborn breaks, it may prevent the need for surgery.1
The non-invasive EXOGEN system is the only FDA-approved device indicated to accelerate healing for indicated* fresh tibia fractures and radius fractures. It has also been indicated for treatment of established non-union* fractures, excluding skull and vertebra. It has not been tested in skeletally immature patients or pregnant women.
It has been demonstrated to heal 86% of non-union* fractures.
EXOGEN may accelerate fracture healing in patients with certain risk factors — including obesity, advanced age and tobacco use — by as much as 50%.11
*Summary of Indications for Use: The EXOGEN Ultrasound Bone Healing System is indicated for the non-invasive treatment of established non-unions† excluding skull and vertebra.
In addition, EXOGEN is indicated for accelerating the time to a healed fracture for fresh, closed, posteriorly displaced distal radius fractures and fresh, closed or Grade I open tibial diaphysis fractures in skeletally mature individuals when these fractures are orthopaedically managed by closed reduction and cast immobilization.
There are no known contraindications for the EXOGEN device. Safety and effectiveness has not been established for individuals lacking skeletal maturity; pregnant or nursing women; patients with cardiac pacemakers; on fractures due to bone cancer; or on patients with poor blood circulation or clotting problems. Some patients may be sensitive to the ultrasound gel. Full prescribing information can be found here or by contacting customer service at 800-396-4325.
†A non-union is considered to be established when the fracture site shows no visibly progressive signs of healing.
