Design history

Collarless, polished and double tapered implant that utilises a world-class stem design

  • 100% survivorship for aseptic loosening with follow-up ranging out to 15 years (1)
  • First introduced in 1995, it has remained unchanged with only minor enhancements to the extramedullary introducer holes
  • Based on biomechanical principles clinically proven over more than 40 years (2)
  • Excellent axial and rotational control during insertion
  • Intuitive in-line/axial stem introduction
  • Intra-operative choice of/transition between captive and semi-captive stem introduction which reduces the likelihood of cement void creation

Function

Recreation of biomechanics can be challenging but with the right system this can be easy and effective

  • Comprehensive range of 36, 38, 45 and 50mm offset stems
  • Lateral shoulder improves cement pressurisation, proximal visualisation and final stem position(3)
  • Highly-polished surface of the TaperFit™ stem is designed to greatly reduce the risk of micromotion-induced abrasion at the stem-cement interface
