Same Spacer Technology.

New Tapered Wedge Design1

InterSpace Tapered Wedge

The InterSpace Tapered Wedge allows surgeons to more conservatively treat patients following a periprosthetic joint infection (PJI) of a wedge-style stem.

Exactech is committed to delivering joint sepsis solutions for a wide range of femoral anatomies and revisions.

Modern Tapered Wedge Design

Helps to more conservatively address a narrow femoral cavity.

The low profile lateral shoulder allows for ease of insertion when implanting the stem, making it possible to use in a direct anterior approach. This new design still maintains the proven High Release formulation, which yields predictable and consistent local antimicrobial activity compared to other treatment options.2-4
