The Blade Femoral Stem
The unique, titanium alloy stem design features a dual taper geometry with a reduced distal profile designed to provide an optimal fit in all bone types. Stem sizes 3 and 4 are significantly shorter in overall length than competitor devices to accommodate small stature patients. The head to stem taper junction has been specifically engineered to limit trunnionosis. To promote early stability and bone ingrowth, the stems feature a 0.25 circumferential press fit and a proximal plasma spray titanium coating. Both standard and lateral offsets are available.
Size 3 - size 18, 20, 22, and 24 available
Standard and Lateralized offsets for each size
A lateralized version of each stem is available, providing a progressively greater horizontal offset with each size, while still maintaining leg length, vertical offset and neck angle. The stem architecture is designed for a more accurate match with anatomical variations and inconsistencies, for optimal biomechanical reconstruction.
Both BIOLOX®delta ceramic heads, known for their low wear and superior mechanical properties, and CoCr heads are available with several offsets to accommodate clinical needs. Both head designs feature an ultra-smooth surface finish for optimal wear performance.
Four sizes, multiple offsets
Size 40 heads available
BIOLOX® delta and CoCr
Skirted versions for high offsets
Quick Reference Color Coding
The head trials are uniquely colored for quick reference during surgery.
