What is Corail stem made of?
The Corail® stem is made of forged titanium alloy (TiAl6V4). It is a straight implant, with a quadrangular cross section. The proximal part is flared in the sagittal and the coronal plane to provide three-dimensional stabilisation in the metaphyseal area.
What is the DePuy Actis stem made of?
Following regulatory clearance/approval, DePuy Synthes introduced the ACTIS™ Total Hip System, a collared titanium primary hip stem.
What do the distal grooves on the Corail stem help to resist?
Distal slots provide adaptability to the natural curve of the femur and may help prevent thigh pain. Approximately 40 mm longer than a standard CORAIL Primary Stem.
What is the constant neck shaft angle of the coxa vara collared stem in the Corail hip System?
CORAIL Coxa Vara 125° neck angle.
What is compaction broaching?
Bone preparation by conventional broaching technique partly removes cancellous bone by the use of toothed broaches. In contrast, the compaction technique sequentially compresses the existing cancellous bone using increasing sizes of smooth tamps (Chareancholvanich et al. 2002).
What are Depuy hip replacements made of?
The devices are implanted into the pelvis during partial or total hip replacement surgeries to relieve pain or increase mobility. Today, the Pinnacle cups come in ceramic-on-polyethylene and metal-on-polyethylene options depending on patient needs.
What is Porocoat?
POROCOAT Porous Coating allows biological fixation without the use of bone cement. 1. With more than 30 years of clinical heritage, our proprietary POROCOAT Porous Coating is composed of commercially pure titanium sintered metal beads.
What causes COXA Vara?
The most common cause of coxa vara is either congenital or developmental. Other common causes include metabolic bone diseases (e.g. Paget’s disease of bone), post-Perthes deformity, osteomyelitis, and post traumatic (due to improper healing of a fracture between the greater and lesser trochanter).
What is femoral broaching?
Femoral broaches, of gradually increased size, are advanced down the medullary canal to prepare the cavity for the femoral stem. To this end, broaches are attached to a broach handle which is repeatedly impacted with a surgical mallet.
What is the best hip replacement to have?
The posterior approach to total hip replacement is the most commonly used method and allows the surgeon excellent visibility of the joint, more precise placement of implants and is minimally invasive.
Which is better ceramic or titanium hip replacement?
Research shows that ceramic hip replacements may be preferable to metal or plastics, as ceramic is more durable and may last longer. There are some limitations for ceramic materials, including a risk of fracture during implant. Improvements in modern materials have made fractures less of a concern today.
What are the features of the Corail hip system?
Combining basic design features, including shape, surface finish and extensive hydroxyapatite coating, with a simple compaction broach-only surgical technique, the CORAIL Total Hip System has demonstrated long-term stem survivorship of 96.3% at 25 years2
What do you need to know about DePuy Synthes?
Access the science and evidence experience showcasing powerful, new surgical techniques and approaches to clinical management on demand. Exclusively preview valuable clinical research and scientific data presented during the first virtual Global Orthopaedic & MedTech Summit presented by DePuy Synthes.
How is the Corail stem chosen for the femur?
Femoral Stem Selection The CORAIL Stem is designed to seat in cancellous bone, and cortical contact should be avoided when templating. Select the appropriate template size that is smaller than the cortex in the proximal femur.
What are the parts of the DePuy ceramax system?
The DePuy Ceramax® Ceramic Total Hip System is a ceramic-on-ceramic bearing total hip replacement prosthesis system. The system consists of five parts: oFemoral Head The femoral head is made from an alumina composite matrix ceramic material called BIOLOX®delta. oCeramic Insert
