Corin received FDA 510(k) clearance to market the Trinity PLUS acetabular cup. Limited launch in 2018 will be followed by full launch in early 2019. Approval under the CE Mark is forthcoming.
Trinity PLUS features a highly porous acetabular cup made via additive manufacturing to deliver a randomized 3D structure that mimics the range of pore size in trabecular bone. Corin claims that this creates a coating that is present throughout the network of interconnected cells, not just on the cup's surface.
Trinity PLUS can be used with all Trinity bearings and can complement the Trinity™ Dual Mobility Hip, which launched in 1Q18.
