43168 Non-constrained polyethylene acetabular liner

Functional description

This Acetabular Insert is the inner portion of a two-piece acetabulum prosthesis that is sterile and made of

X3 polyethylene (highly cross-linked UHWMPE). Inserted into an Acetabular Shell, to articulate with an

artificial Femoral Head as part of a Total Hip Arthroplasty (THA). The insert allows rotational alignment

using 12 indexable scallops. Four alignment studs on the shell provide rotational and axial alignment.

Intended purpose

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


· Painful, disabling joint disease of the hip resulting from: degenerative arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis,

post-traumatic arthritis or late stage avascular necrosis.

· Revision of previous unsuccessful femoral head replacement, cup arthroplasty or other procedure.

· Clinical management problems where arthrodesis or alternative reconstructive techniques are less likely

to achieve satisfactory results.

· Where bone stock is of poor quality or is inadequate for other reconstructive techniques as indicated by

deficiencies of the acetabulum.
