Exactech Gains FDA Clearance for Alteon Cup and XLE Liner -

Exactech received FDA 510(k) clearance to market the Alteon® Acetabular Cup and XLE® Liner for hip reconstruction. The cup provides multiple implant configurations and bearing options for the Alteon portfolio and features TAC™ asymmetric porous coating. Alteon XLE highly crosslinked vitamin-E enhanced acetabular liners undergo a patented gamma irradiation and mechanical annealing process, to achieve the desired crosslink density. In 2H19, Exactech will expand U.S. rollout of the Alteon Cup; full launch is slated for late 2019. (Exactech, 3/14/19)
