HyPrevention was founded in 2010 by Cécile Vienney and 3 orthopedic surgeons to support the development of Y-Strut.
Y-Strut is a medical device for the prevention of hip fracture developed by HyPrevention. It is intended to prevent a contra-lateral fracture in patients at risk due to bone fragility linked to osteoporosis.
Hip fracture affects more than 2 million people worldwide every year. This number will reach more than 6 million in 2050, due to an aging and increasing population. At 1 year, 9% of patients will have a contra-lateral fracture, at 5 years this rises to 20%. After a second contralateral fracture, loss of autonomy is almost certain to prevent a return home. Mortality is multiplied by 2.
Prevention of hip fracture improves the quality of life of older people by allowing them to retain their autonomy. For "young" active seniors, who have brittle bone quality resulting in a first fracture, prevention allows an increased life expectancy.
Implementation of a contralateral Y-Strut is performed during the same anesthesia as practiced for the treatment of the original fracture. The duration of hospitalization remains unchanged. Contralateral Y-Strut requires no specific rehabilitation.
Use of Y-Strut is also being studied in oncology to consolidate and strengthen biomechanically tumor-induced lesions before fracture occurs.
