PEARL
WE RESTORE MOBILITY

Restoring the function  of joint surfaces using  tissueengineering

Thanks to the PEARL procedure, performed at an early stage of the development of the degenerative disease, it will be possible to completely regenerate the cartilage.

Thanks to the regeneration of cartilage defects, the disease will not progress and the need for arthroplasty (implantation of a joint endoprosthesis) will not occur.

No effective strategy for treatment young, active patients with cartilage leasions.

in 2030

The first THA (total hip arthroplasty) performed in younger patients will constitute 52%

The first TKA (total knee arthroplasty) 55%

Osteoarthritis (OA)

Is a disease characterized by joint  pain and dysfunction caused by  the progressive and irreversible  loss of joint cartilage.

 

At an advanced stage of the  disease, it becomes necessary  touseanendoprosthesis.Removal  of the joint means its permanent  destruction and the  final  loss  of periarticular bone tissue.

In the case of disease progression and  periimplant tissue degeneration,the next  stage is an even more extensive excision of the tissues and theimplantation

of larger implant – which usually ends with a permanent disabilityafter revision  surgeries.

By 2050

130 million patients will be suffering

from osteoarthritis

40 million will be disabled

It is significant that the disease affects  younger and younger patients,  analyzing data so far

Value of the global endoprosthesis market:

2019 - USD 19.32 billion
2027 - USD 29.79 billion
5.6% CAGR

Global cartilage reconstruction market value:

2022 - USD 984,25 mln
2030 - USD 3 095,64 mln
15,4% CAGR

There is no effective therapy for degenerative joint disease

Worldwide, 9.6% of men and 18% of women over the age of 60 have symptoms of osteoarthritis.

80% of them suffer from limited movement  and 25% areunable to perform basic life  activities.

Disadvantages of existing solutions

Disadvantages of traditional methods (endoprostheses)

The prosthesis does not rebuild into tissue. Its implantation destroys bone and cartilage irreversibly.

Progressive tissue lysis around the endoprosthesis.

Inability to fill and restore the tissue after loosening the implant.

In the case of peri-prosthetic fractures, it is necessary to replace with extensive damage to the bones and surrounding tissues.

Endoprosthesis loosening - revisions of endoprostheses lead to the loss of bone tissue and surrounding structures, which results in permanent disability.

Inability to reproduce the full range of motion. Inability to return to full fitness.

Hip prosthesis - risk of dislocation, Hip and knee prosthesis - complex periprosthetic bone fractures.

Age and health restrictions.

Significant risk of infection (not only perisurgical).

The need for revision surgery that appears along with the implantation of an endoprosthesis in younger age groups 45-55 (1- 3 per patient) - increased risk of complications.

Disadvantages of available biological methods

Lack of technology to restore full-thick and stable hyaline cartilage.

Limited effectiveness compared to traditional methods (endoprothesis).

Possibility to treat small cartilage defects.

Unknown effectiveness in people over 55 years of age.

High cost of therapy.

In the United States, only 0.4% of all surgically treated patients undergo regenerative treatment , but this group is gradually growing.
