The Alteon® Tapered Wedge Femoral Stem incorporates specific design features to achieve immediate axial and rotational mechanical stability between the lateral and medial cortices of the femoral canal.

Intuitive

  • Optimized overall length and proximal/distal sizing to achieve fixation in all primary femur types (Dorr A,B,C) without compromising implant features or surgical technique.1

Stable

  • Medial/lateral filling implant with a pronounced lateral flare geometry is designed to evenly distribute the load in the proximal femur and provide initial mechanical stability.2

Versatile

  • Four neck length groupings and an array of stem sizes/offsets provide multiple options to restore patient anatomy without the need for modularity.
