Medacta announced the first surgeries utilizing its AMIS-K Long, Iliac Screw Mpact 3D Metal, and 3D Metal B-Cage, after each of the items received CE marking. These new products, alongside the M-Vizion Modular Femoral Revision Stem, further broaden the Medacta Hip Revision Platform.
The 3D Metal B-Cage is the latest addition to Medacta Reinforcement Cages Portfolio, allowing surgeons to cover challenging acetabular revision cases with major bone defects. Featuring an anatomical, anterior-friendly design that simplifies implant introduction and thanks to the innovative design of the dome and flanges, an enhanced range of sizes, and the unique compatibility with lag and compression polyaxial locking screws, the 3DMetal B-Cage enables surgeons to bridge acetabular areas of bone loss or acetabular fractures.
An enhancement to the Mpact System for primary and complex hip revision procedures, the Iliac Screw Mpact 3D Metal is a cementless acetabular ultra-porous titanium shell with a modular polyaxial iliac screw. It provides a range of options for complex hip replacement cases, and is particularly appropriate in settings with extensive acetabular bone loss or special anatomy as it makes use of the iliac isthmus for support and fixation.
Because stability and fixation are key elements of hip replacement surgery, the Iliac Screw Mpact 3D Metal and the 3D Metal B-Cage are manufactured with Medacta's distinguishing in-house 3D Metal technology. With a high coefficient of friction, high porosity and large pore sizes constructed via 3D additive manufacturing, this advanced structure allows for an enhanced initial stability and provides a favorable environment for long-term metal-bone biologic fixation.
The surgical technique and instrumentation for both implants have been developed to allow for streamlined implantation, either via a traditional or a minimally invasive anterior approach.
The AMIS-K Long is a Charnley-Kerboull long cemented stem specifically designed for revision THA. It supports maximum intraoperative flexibility for treating a range of pathologies and patients, coupled with straightforward, modular instrumentation.
The AMIS-K Long, Iliac Screw Mpact 3D Metal, 3D Metal B-Cage implants and their cutting-edge concepts will be introduced into the market in selected medical centers following the guidelines of the Medacta Orthopaedic Research and Education (M.O.R.E.) Excellence Clinical Program.
