TaperFit™ 

Cemented Total Hip Replacement
 

TaperFit™  is a cemented, double-tapered, polished, collarless stem.  It has been successfully used for over 17 years and has produced excellent clinical results(1). Designed to take advantage of the phenomenon of '˜cement creep', it is based on biomechanical principles proven in over 40years of clinical use(2).

The TaperFit™  femoral prosthesis incorporates an extended lateral shoulder designed to enhance rotational stability and cement pressurisation. The elliptical hole on the shoulder of the stem enables the use of a dedicated introducer to improve the accuracy of stem insertion and alignment within the cement mantle, which is a critical factor in the long-term success of cemented total hip replacements(3).

Other key features include: TaperFit.jpg

  • High-strength stainless steel stem.
  • 36mm, 38mm, 45mm and 50mm offsets.
  • Five stem sizes available.
  • PMMA stem centraliser.
  • '˜Eurocone' 12/14 taper.
  • Compatible with a range of CoCrMo-alloy and BIOLOX® delta modular heads.
  • Compatible with Trinity™ Advanced Bearing Acetabular System which incorporates:

    - BIOLOX® delta ceramic-on-ceramic

    - Highly cross-linked polyethylene

    - ECiMa™ (vitamin E stabilised highly cross-linked polyethylene) bearings

    Also compatible with Corin's Unipolar and Bipolar hemiarthroplasty options

  • Unique stem introducer enhances accurate stem positioning.
  • Each implant has a dedicated, over-sized broach which produces a cement mantle. A trial reduction can be performed with the broach in situ. Implant depth may be accurately measured by assessing the position of one of the three proximal holes on the rasp relative to the resected femoral neck. Corresponding marks on the definitive stem are intended to ensure the trialled position can be accurately replicated.

TaperFit forms part of Corin's Hip Fracture Management Solution
