POLARCUP Dual Mobility Hip System

It’s been implanted in Europe and other places outside the U.S. for over a decade, and the company says that the implant can deliver lower wear and dislocation rates when compared to competing devices.SN-POLARCUP

The system is specifically designed to address the challenges of treating patients – in both primary and revision cases – who are susceptible to dislocation and need enhanced stability.  Backed by 10 years of clinical history in Europe and other markets outside the US, the POLARCUP System allows surgeons to implant a smaller, constrained femoral component within a larger, anatomically sized polyethylene head, thus providing greater stability by increasing range of motion and jump distance.

February 9, 2012 – Smith & Nephew (NYSE:SNN;LSE:SN), the global medical technology business, is introducing the clinically proven POLARCUP◊ Dual Mobility Hip System to orthopaedic surgeons in the US at this year’s American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS) annual meeting in San Francisco. The system is specifically designed to address the challenges of treating patients – in both primary and revision cases – who are susceptible to dislocation and need enhanced stability.

Backed by 10 years of clinical history in Europe and other markets outside the US, the POLARCUP System allows surgeons to implant a smaller, constrained femoral component within a larger, anatomically sized polyethylene head, thus providing greater stability by increasing range of motion and jump distance. “This stability philosophy is widely used in the European market where surgeons have extensive experience with dual mobility in elderly and less active patients,” says John Soto, Senior Vice President for Smith & Nephew’s Global Hip Franchise.

The POLARCUP System is a complement to the company’s clinically proven BIRMINGHAM™ Hip Resurfacing System, which provides stability and durability for the young active patient.
