Two pre-assembled components: Acetabular Insert and Femoral Head (UHR). The UHR has a factory

assembled UHMWPE retention ring. The outer acetabular insert has a Ti alloy retaining ring which retains

the UHR Head in the plastic portion of the insert and a CoCr alloy circumferential locking wire for secure

assembly of the insert to the metal shell. The Constrained Acetabular Insert is designed to be assembled

with a 50 mm or larger outer diameter Standard Profile Metal Acetabular Shell.

Intended purpose

A component of a total hip joint prosthesis that is used to replace or repair the acetabulum. The
