Health Canada and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) of the United States have approved the Y3 implant, a proximal femoral plate system developed by professor Yvan Petit and Yan Bourgeois of the École de technologie supérieure (ÉTS), as well as Dr. Georges-Yves Laflamme. Y3 is a prosthesis that relieves the pain of individuals who have fractures on the greater trochanter by fixing this upper section of the femur to the hip.
