Tested. Stable. Strong.
- Pore size, count and porosity designed to allow biological fixation1,2 while maintaining strength.3
- Porosity: 45-57%
- Pore Size 130-390um
- Offers equal amount of press-fit across the acetabulum as compared to elliptical cups4
- Elliptical cups have been shown to have higher potential for intraoperative complications such as fracture.
- High coefficient of friction combined with geometry create a predictable friction fit in the acetabulum
- Result enables initial mechanical stability, which ultimately leads to biologic fixation.
- Electron Beam Melting (EBM) integrates a porous and solid substrate versus a porous coating sintered to a solid surface.
- Integrated material: High shear/tensile strength3
