Division: Shoulder Reconstruction
Introducing the GLOBAL UNITE Platform Shoulder Arthroplasty System, a modular shoulder system that provides surgeons adaptability within the Operating Room without compromising recognised biomechanical principles.
Every shoulder fracture presents a unique challenge. That is why DePuy Synthes Joint Reconstruction has created GLOBAL UNITE, a next-generation platform system. The modular proximal bodies enable the surgeon to restore joint height in press-fit and cemented applications, whilst the modular suture collar facilitates anatomic reconstruction of the tuberosities.
In the event that the patient’s pathology indicates that a GLOBAL UNITE System conversion to a reverse shoulder is required, the conversion can be accommodated without compromising biomechanics. Removal of the proximal body makes provision for the epiphysis to be attached to a well-fixed distal stem within the humerus at the proper height and version to optimise deltoid function.1
The GLOBAL UNITE System truly provides the surgeon Principled Adaptability within the Operating Room.
