PINNACLE® Hip Solutions
PINNACLE® Hip Solutions
PINNACLE® Hip Solutions is a modular cup system designed with a wide range of acetabular cup options, biological and mechanical fixation alternatives and bearing technologies that allows surgeons the flexibility to choose intraoperatively from advanced technologies available depending on their patients’ individual needs. The PINNACLE CUP celebrates more than 20 years of clinical heritage with more than 3.4 million cups1 implanted in patients worldwide.
Features & Benefits
Multiple Fixation Options
Initial and long-term component fixation are key to restore joint function. With the PINNACLE® Cup, fixation is achieved through 180° of either POROCOAT®, DUOFIX® with Hydroxyapatite (HA) or GRIPTION® Coatings.
Cementless coating fixation technologies2, 3, 4 are based on the clinical performance5, 6, 7 of POROCOAT® Porous Coating, which was introduced with the AML® Cup in 1977, with the DURALOC® Cup in 1980 and with the PINNACLE® Cup in 2000. Therefore, it has been clinically tracked for over 30 years. The DUOFIX® Fixation System was introduced with PINNACLE® cups in 2003 being an evolutionary combination of POROCOAT® Porous Coating and highly amorphous hydroxyapatite (HA).
Finally, in 2009 the GRIPTION® Cup emerged with its 3D fixation technology6-11.
ALTRX® Polyethylene is an ultra-low-wear polyethylene and an advanced option in alternative bearings. The specific manufacturing process is designed to optimise the balance between wear reduction, mechanical integrity, and oxidative stability.
BIOLOX® Delta Ceramic Heads
The technology of BIOLOX® Delta Ceramic Heads articulating on ALTRX® Polyethylene Bearings provides an alternative solution for high-demand patients.
PINNACLE® Hip Solutions provides a full spectrum of shell styles, liner offerings, and offset options to address a wide variety of patient anatomies.
