SHOT

The SmartShot® marrow access device is the latest first-line treatment for getting patients with cartilage defects back in action.

Used for standalone marrow stimulation therapy or with biologics, it delivers double the marrow access of traditional microfracture with less disruption to native bone in a novel, easy-to-use device.

TRANSFORMING
MARROW
STIMULATION

The SmartShot device creates clean, deep, precise holes, providing 2X greater access to stem cell-rich marrow, with 66% less bone disruption than traditional microfracture. Better access to healing marrow with less collateral damage: that’s smart.

BONE MARROW STIMULATION:
THE GOLD STANDARD

Because bone marrow is rich in stem cells, which are shown to aid in cartilage regeneration, bone marrow stimulation is increasingly recognized as the gold standard for treatment.

This is a novel tool that will serve to enhance joint biology.

SmartShot
Mallet Microfracture
SmartShot channels (left) in porcine femur imaged with micro CT vs. mallet microfracture channels (right) resulted in significantly greater marrow access.

1.5X MORE CHANNELS
2X DEEPER

SmartShot provides more than double the exposure of subchondral marrow compared to legacy mallet microfracture—1.5X more channels and 2X deeper.

SmartShot Mallet SmartShot vs. Mallet
Interior subchondral surface area per channel [mm2] 22.2 15.0 148%
Interior subchondral surface area per defect [mm2] 183.8 86.4 213%

66% LESS BONE
DISRUPTION

Because of the precision, small size and consistency of SmartShot channels, there is much less disruption to the surface and subchondral bone than with traditional microfracture.

SmartShot Mallet SmartShot vs. Mallet
Average disruption area per hole (cortical) [mm2] 0.8 3.1 24%
Average disruption area per defect (cortical) [mm2] 6.2 18.1 34%

Mallet Microfracture
SmartShot channels (left) in porcine femur show no subchondral compaction. Mallet microfracture channels (right) have a significant presence of a compacted shell.
When I want the best possible outcome, I use SmartShot to get reliable deep marrow access with minimal impact to the subchondral bone.
