Functional description

Anatomic configuration: Attached to a humeral head component, it is intended for shoulder

hemiarthroplasty (if the natural glenoid provides a sufficient bearing surface), or as part of a total shoulder

replacement (in conjunction with a glenoid component). Reverse configuration: Intended for replacement

of the shoulder joint in conjunction with a reversed adapter (composed of a reversed tray & insert) and

glenoid implants. The stem is coated titanium alloy and is for cemented or cementless use.

Intended purpose

A component of the Aequalis Ascend Flex Shoulder System intended for use as a replacement of shoulder

joints in primary anatomic or in primary reverse, and a replacement of other shoulder joints devices in case

of revisions if sufficient bone stock remains.

The Aequalis Ascend Flex Shoulder System also allows for conversions from anatomic to reverse shoulder

prosthesis in case of revision.
