The first anatomic total shoulder surgery has been performed in Europe using Exactech's bone-conserving, 3D-printed Equinoxe® Stemless Shoulder.
The system was introduced in the U.S. in 2018 and is manufactured using direct metal 3D printing with high precision lasers to create its porous bone cage. This humeral component’s bone cage structure is designed for initial press-fit and biologic fixation.
Additional features of the product include the humeral component's optimized pore size, count and porosity, as well as surgical efficiency through its single instrument tray. Surgeons can also use it in conjunction with the Equinoxe Shoulder System's standard and augmented glenoid solutions.
Exactech plans to roll out additional inventory throughout the rest of 2021.
