    Closure Home Products Orthopaedics Knee Arthroplasty EnduRo Rotating Hinge Knee System EnduRo Rotating Hinge Knee System Longevity mobility and security against dislocation Description The innovative EnduRo knee endoprosthesis is a bicondylar linked implant that was developed for the treatment of severe bone defects and insufficiency of the ligamentous apparatus The three objectives of the EnduRo knee endoprosthesis system are longevity mobility and security against dislocation Longevity is the first objective of the EnduRo system The problems associated previously with linked prostheses due mainly to abrasive wear in the bush bearing and a geometric design which deviates significantly from physiological requirements are avoided because they can lead to premature loosening and implant failure The EnduRo knee endoprosthesis system is based on new concepts for biomechanical materials which practically eliminate the mechanisms that cause failure These new materials are a prerequisite for increasing the longevity of rotational hinge implants to that of tried and tested condylar primary implants Mobility is another very important factor for the patient EnduRo offers 12 rotation on the vertical axis a flexion angle of at least 140 which is increased further by the sophisticated lift technology of 3 mm and a hyperextension of up to 3 securely

  • B. Braun Melsungen AG - Products - univation® Unicondylar Knee System
    Minimally invasive and bone sparing Minimally invasive YES but above all safe Minimally invasive instruments in conjunction with the OrthoPilot provide for a safe minimally invasive surgical technique The navigation procedure is integrated in the operation in a user friendly manner The exact implant alignment is documented reproducibly during ongoing surgery with the OrthoPilot The univation system with its bone sparing design provides high primary stability Only minimal bone resections of the femur and tibia are needed for ensuring secure anchorage Form and position of the primary fixation elements on the metal components as well as the sturdy yet slim design of the implants make this possible Minimum bone resection also allows for easier revision surgeries Long term stability through unique coating The main reason for revisions is implant loosening supported by shear forces and lift off effects A special developed PMMA nanobond coating creates a chemical connection between cement and implant material As a result a 40 higher cement adhesion is achieved and helps to avoid implant loosening Restoration of the natural knee function Implantation of the unicondylar univation prosthesis in an early disease stage can prevent the spread of arthrosis to other regions of the joint and can

  • B. Braun Melsungen AG - Products - AS Advanced Surface
    AS Advanced Surface AS Advanced Surface 7 Layers to protect you Description AS Advanced Surface is an innovative coating for knee implants to improve mechanical properties and biocompatibility of knee systems The zirconium nitride top coat yields superior surface hardness that is unmatched in the market place The wear rate is reduced by up to 65 compared to standard implants This ceramic surface layer stands for improved scratch resistance good wettability and for better articulation between bearing surfaces Unlike monolayer coatings the AS 7 layer coating has a buffer zone which compensates the changes in surface hardness and results in more resilientelastic properties Additionally the transition layers act as an effective metal ion barrier thus ideal for patients with metal hypersensitivity A powerful bond coating between the base material and subsequent layers ensure strong adhesion Beta PE All Aesculap knee system s polyethylenes are sterilized under Beta radiation which uses higher concentrated lower penetrating radiation levels for reduced oxidation yielding better wear results Sharkey et al Improved Polyethylene or alternative bearing surfaces can certainly diminish the failure rate after knee arthroplasty Better long term results The AS coating in combination with Beta PE yields superior performance Better long term results
