Inverse Shoulder Prosthesis
DESCRIPTION: Affinis Inverse, evolutionary, inverse and proven.
EVOLUTIONARY: Inlay screw notching was eliminated by metaglene optimisation to a two-peg design without an inferior screw. An increased impingement-free range of motion is achieved by a systematic glenosphere overhang and chamfered inlays – with an effective humeral stem inclination of 147°.1
INVERSE: With an inversion of the materials in the tribological pairing, polyethylene abrasion at the scapular neck and the surrounding structures is eliminated.2 This results in a reduced risk of polyethylene-induced diseases.3-6
PROVEN: Proven primary procedure with more than 10 years of clinical experience and strong clinical evidence.7,8
PROGRESSIVE: In case of possible hypersensitivity to metal ions, Affinis Inverse provides a standard solution for allergy patients. The unique vitamys-ceramic tribological pairing highlights the principle for low wear9 and durable prostheses.
CLEVER: A straightforward set concept and a clever instrumentation simplify the workflow during implantation. Furthermore, all surgical steps are instrument guided, thereby reproducible results can be achieved.
