The Zimmer® M/L Taper Hip Prosthesis offers a simple alternative for patients with adequate bone stock. The collarless prosthesis optimizes the clinically proven tapered wedge fixation philosophy while providing secure mediolateral stability. The stem is available in 14 sizes from 4mm–22.5mm, with standard and extended offsets.
The tapered wedge design provides a wedge fit for mediolateral stability. Slim A/P dimension conserves bone while providing excellent torsional stability. Tivanium ® Ti-6Al-4V Alloy provides excellent biocompatibility and strength without excessive stiffness.
Circumferential Plasma Spray facilitates mechanical fixation for a secure bone-implant interface. Minimized Lateral Shoulder helps to conserve bone and ease insertion. Standard and Extended Offsets provide anatomical offset options to facilitate soft tissue tensioning. Extended offsets are achieved through a parallel neck shift without affecting leg length or changing the component neck angle.
