Descrizione del prodotto

La capacità di soddisfare le esigenze dei singoli pazienti.

Il sistema acetabolare Continuum fornisce soluzioni altamente flessibili per i chirurghi ortopedici che trattano un’ampia gamma di pazienti. Il sistema combina la fissazione  biologica comprovata1,2 della Tecnologia Trabecular Metal con le opzioni di accoppiamento avanzate Zimmer. Con un unico sistema completo,i chirurghi riescono a risolvere i problemi legati alla diversità dell’anatomia e della qualità dell’osso,nonché scegliere la tecnologia di accoppiamento che soddisfa al meglio le esigenze di ogni singolo paziente.

Materiale Trabecular Metal altamente poroso con oltre undici anni di storia clinica

  • Stabilità iniziale3
  • Fissaggio biologico a lungo termine4,5
  • Storia clinica comprovata1,2

La possibilità di scegliere un’avanzata tecnologia di accoppiamento per soddisfare le richieste del paziente

  • I chirurghi possono scegliere fra tre tipi di inserto, in base alle esigenze dei loro pazienti.
  • Il polietilene altamente reticolato Longevity® presenta una resistenza elevata all’usura6 e all’invecchiamento 7-15, con oltre dieci anni di storia clinica comprovata.16
  • La tecnologia Metasul® ha un tasso molto basso di usura17 con oltre vent’anni di storia clinica documentata.18-25
  • La ceramica BIOLOX®* delta† ha un basso tasso di usura con proprietà meccaniche migliorate rispetto alla ceramica tradizionale.26

BIOLOX ®  è un marchio registrato di Ceramtech GmbH
