Seamlessly integrated with the Alteon® Platform system, the Alteon Cup is beauty refined. This acetabular system provides multiple cup implant configurations and bearing options which can be used for various surgical applications. The unique TACTM porous technology provides excellent initial and biological fixation. When combined with Exactech’s XLE® Vitamin E polyethylene liners this acetabular system is certain to compliment your surgical ensemble.
Asymmetric Porous Coating
The TAC porous technology strikes the optimal balance between material strength, pore size and porosity. The TAC proprietary process creates a unique 3-D structural lattice of irregular shaped particles with increased average pore size and greater porosity than traditional spherical beads.1
Vitamin E Enhanced Liners
Alteon® XLE® highly crosslinked vitamin E enhanced acetabular liners are designed to provide low wear while maintaining mechanical strength, reducing the free radicals, and oxidative degradation.2,3 Liners are available in Neutral, Extended Coverage, +5 Lateralized, and Face Changing configurations.
Optimized Head/Cup Aspect Ratio
This allows one to achieve the maximum head/cup combination while still maintaining polyethene thickness.4
Three-Part Locking Mechanism
The Alteon Cup features a three-part locking mechanism with more than 15 years of clinical use.5 It consists of an apical tab intended to prevent liner translation and pull-out, recessed scallops intended to provide rotational control, and a fully congruent liner/shell designed to virtually eliminate micromotion and minimize the potential for backside wear.6,7
