Lima Corporate Awarded New ODEP Ratings for SMR Reverse Shoulder


Lima Corporate received two new ODEP ratings for the SMR Shoulder System, awarded by the Orthopaedic Data Evaluation Panel in the U.K.

Lima's new ratings are:

  • SMR Reverse with Uncemented Fixation (Metal Glenosphere/Polyethylene Liner Combination), 10A (the only shoulder to receive a 10A benchmark)
  • SMR Reverse HP with Uncemented Fixation (Polyethylene Glenosphere/Metal Liner Combination), 5A

ODEP ratings provide a simple, independently-verified assessment of implant performance, assessed against clinical best practice guidelines. Shoulder ratings are provided at benchmarks of 3, 5, 7 and 10 years of follow-up; an A or B rating indicates strength of evidence and quality of the data provided. Many countries ex-U.K. use these ratings to support their approval of products.

In 2H18, Lima will launch the SMR TT Hybrid Glenoid in the U.S. This device is made from 3D-printed Trabecular Titanium, and is reported to be first convertible Hybrid Glenoid implant that allows conversion from anatomic to reverse implant design without removal of the central peg.
