Modern Tapered Wedge Design

Helps to more conservatively address a narrow femoral cavity.

The low profile lateral shoulder allows for ease of insertion when implanting the stem, making it possible to use in a direct anterior approach. This new design still maintains the proven High Release formulation, which yields predictable and consistent local antimicrobial activity compared to other treatment options.2-4
