Product Description

Augmentation Patella

The Zimmer Trabecular Metal Augmentation Patella is intended to help compensate for significant bone loss in the patella during revision total knee arthroplasty. The All-Polyethylene Patella is cemented into the Trabecular Metal Material base. The Zimmer Trabecular Metal Augmentation Patella is intended for use with bone cement. Additional fixation is provided by suture attachment of the Trabecular Metal Material base to the patellar tendon and remaining bone stock.

Medium and large sizes, both in 19 mm and 22 mm total thicknesses, help compensate for bone deficiencies and restore anatomic relationships.

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 a nano-textured strut architecture that creates an initial scratch fit and facilitates the long-term biologic attachment of orthopedic implants via bone ingrowth.

Trabecular Metal Material is the most advanced fixation surface available for orthopedic implants. Clinical use since 1997 demonstrates that this innovative technology provides excellent initial scratch fit and stable, long-term fixation. No other porous metal material so closely resembles the structure, function and physiology of cancellous bone.
