Axogen to attend AAHS ASPN ASRM 2022 Annual Meetings | Nation / World


ALACHUA, Fla. And TAMPA, Fla., Jan. 4, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – Axogen, Inc. (NASDAQ: AXGN), a global leader in the development and commercialization of innovative surgical solutions for damage or severing of peripheral nerves, today announced its participation in the 2022 combined meetings of the American Association for Hand Surgery (AAHS), American Society for Peripheral Nerve (ASPN) and American Society for Reconstructive Microsurgery (ASRM). The meetings will be held January 11-18, 2022 in Carlsbad, California.

Axogen will host an educational symposium on Thursday, January 13 at 1:00 p.m., showcasing modern approaches to nerve repair and reconstruction. Data in Decision Making: The Modern, Sense Approach to Nerve Repair includes a panel of expert peripheral nerve surgeons who will examine how they achieve meaningful results by following an evidence-based, clinically validated nerve repair algorithm. Panelists will use clinical cases and the most recent data to explain why this algorithm remains a reliable approach to managing peripheral nerves in their practice.

“Surgeons’ interest in peripheral nerve repair is evident in the number of nerve presentations highlighting Axogen technologies on all meeting agendas,” said Karen Zaderej, president, CEO and chairman. “We look forward to meeting participants in person and discussing how we can work together to bring our innovative, evidence-based peripheral nerve repair solutions to more patients who will benefit. “

Presentations featuring Axogen technologies include:

  • “Histological comparison of the fascicular area of ​​the cabled sural nerve autograft and the treated nerve allograft” selected to be presented at the AAHS / ASPN / ASRM Outstanding Articles session on Saturday January 15th.
  • “Neurotization techniques and results in innervated breast reconstruction: a systematic review and a pooled analysis” at the AAHS / ASPN / ASRM Outstanding Paper Session on Saturday January 15th.
  • Assessment of phagocytosis of axonal and myelin debris in damaged distal nerve stumps surrounded by small intestinal submucosa or reticulated collagen ‘ Friday January 14.
  • “Neurotized DIEP flaps: a timeline for sensory recovery” Sunday January 16.

Building on the success of ASRM Sew with the masters program, ASPN announced its Sewing nerf with the masters program. The program allows young surgeons to perfect their microsurgical nerve repair technique in a one-on-one session with an expert. These 15 minute sessions previously focused on vessel repair and have now been expanded to include nerve repair skills. Axogen is happy to provide in-kind donations, such as the Avance® Nerve Transplant, as well as nerve experts to provide hands-on support during all sessions. In addition, Axogen will also sponsor the ASRM Women in Microsurgery dinner and hold an interactive booth throughout the meetings.

About Axogen

Axogen (AXGN) is the leading company that focuses specifically on the science, development and commercialization of technologies for the regeneration and repair of peripheral nerves. Axogen employees are passionate about helping restore peripheral nerve function and quality of life for patients with physical damage or severed peripheral nerves by providing innovative, clinically proven and cost effective repair solutions. for surgeons and healthcare providers. Peripheral nerves provide the pathways for motor and sensory signals throughout the body. Every day, people suffer traumatic injuries or have surgeries that affect the function of their peripheral nerves. Physical damage to a peripheral nerve, or the inability to properly reconnect peripheral nerves, can lead to loss of muscle or organ function, loss of sensory sensation, or the onset of pain.

Axogen’s Platform for Peripheral Nerve Repair includes a comprehensive product portfolio including Avance® Nerve Graft, a biologically active, ready-to-use human nerve allograft for the bypass of severed peripheral nerves without the associated comorbidities at a second surgical site; Axoguard Nerve Connector®, a coaptation aid of the porcine submucosal extracellular matrix (ECM) for tension-free repair of severed peripheral nerves; Axoguard Nerve Protector®, a porcine submucosal ECM product used to envelop and protect damaged peripheral nerves and strengthen nerve reconstruction while preventing soft tissue attachments; and Axoguard Nerve Cap®, a porcine submucosal ECM product used to protect a peripheral nerve end and separate the nerve from the surrounding environment to reduce the development of a symptomatic or painful neuroma. The Axogen product line is available in the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, South Korea and several other European and international countries.
