The Trabecular Metal Reverse Shoulder System gives surgeons the ability to return cuff tear arthroplasty patients to the simple activities of daily living. The Trabecular Metal base plate provides superior glenoid stability1 while the 60 degree humeral components reduces the likelihood of scapular notching.2,3
The Anatomical Shoulder Inverse/Reverse Base Plate is compatible with the Trabecular Metal Reverse Stem.

Zimmer Trabecular Metal Technology. No other porous material so closely resembles the structure, function and physiology of trabecular bone.
Trabecular Metal Material is a highly porous structure with architecture that creates an initial scratch fit and facilitates biologic ingrowth. In clinical use since 1997 this innovative technology provides excellent initial scratch fit and stable fixation.
