33581 Coated hip femur prosthesis, modular

Functional description

The neck segment is proximal component of the assembly, made from Tilastan titanium alloy. Neck

segment body is cementless with HX that promotes bone ongrowth. Proximal neck segment can be

positioned for optimal ante-version. Teeth at proximal stem end and inside neck segment together with

fixation screw securely connect modular components. Fixation mechanism allows individual ante-version

for patient, regardless of position of stem within femoral canal. Neck segment has 12/14 taper.

Intended purpose

The neck segment is the proximal component of the MP Reconstruction Prosthesis indicated for use in

treatment of mobility-limiting diseases, fractures or defects of the hip joint and the proximal femur which

cannot be treated by conservative or osteosynthetic procedures

· Revision arthroplasty due to juxta-articular bone defects

· Revision of loosened femoral prosthesis components involving extensive bone resorption of the proximal

femur and widening of the medullary cavity or marked thinning of proximal femoral cortical bone

· Revision of loosened femoral prosthesis components by peri-/ subprosthetic fracture

· Deformed proximal femur due to fractures or osteotomies

· Correction of bone deficiencies, e.g. due to tumors

· Large post-revision and post-trauma segmental bone defects
