Exactech announced completion of first surgeries using the Alteon® HA Femoral Hip Stem, all coupled with the InteGrip® Cup acetabular shell. Full U.S. launch of the Alteon HA Stem is slated for early 2018.
The device comprises a fully hydroxyapatite-coated prosthesis with a broach-only system to accommodate various surgical approaches.
Exactech's Alteon line includes the Tapered Wedge Femoral, Neck Preserving and Monobloc Revision stems, all of which employ the same core femoral instruments.
