Design history

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

  • 100% survivorship for aseptic loosening with follow-up ranging out to15 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

Taperfit instrumentation

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 pressurization, proximal visualization 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
