Exactech's First Hip Procedure with Alteon Cup and XLE Liner -

Exactech reported the successful first surgery using the Alteon® Acetabular Cup and XLE® Liner. The device, which gained FDA 510(k) clearance earlier this month, provides multiple implant configurations and bearing options for the Alteon portfolio and features TAC™ asymmetric porous coating. XLE highly crosslinked vitamin-E enhanced acetabular liners undergo a patented gamma irradiation and mechanical annealing process, to achieve the desired crosslink density. Exactech will commence U.S. rollout in 2H19. (Exactech, 3/27/19)
