Cemented Cup

In cooperation with Prof. Maurice E. Müller, Mathys developed and produced the cemented M.E. Müller cup. Since 1996, Mathys has sold the cup under its own name (CCB).

The CCB cup is a cemented monoblock acetabular cup made of UHMWPE with an integrated radiopaque wire. It follows the Müller philosophy. In conjunction with or without an acetabular roof reinforcement ring, the CCB cup is used for treating diseased hip joints in primary and revision surgery. The portfolio covers a full and a low- profile version and is available in twelve sizes. The CCB cup demonstrates good long-term results with respect to implant survival.1

  • Portfolio from size 42–64mm (in 2mm increments)
  • The CCB cup can be positioned in the bone cement to reconstruct the patient’s individual anatomical situation2
  • Available in a low and full-profile version with 28 and 32mm articulation
  • The low-profile CCB cup allows an increased range of motion compared to the full-profile CCB cup3
  • The increased height of the cup rim of the full-profile cup provides an increased jumping distance compared to the low-profile cup.4 This feature aims to decrease the risk of dislocation
