The C-STEM AMT Triple Taper Stabilised Hip builds upon the clinical success of the original C-STEM Triple Taper Stabilised Hip and its unique triple tapered highly polished design2-4. The functional intra-medullary geometry of orginal C-STEM has been maintained whilst the extra-medullary geometry has been enhanced with a raised lateral shoulder, for better visualization during insertion, and the addition of the 12/14 ARTICUL /EZE® mini-taper. This taper provides the surgeon with increased versatility due to its compatibility with the extensive DePuy Synthes Joint Reconstruction femoral head and acetabular portfolio.
C-STEM AMT, implanted using a modern cementing technique and a proven bone cement1 is designed to restore function to today's patient population in hybrid total hip arthroplasty. THA continues to evolve and improve as time and experience reveal which design features improve results. The original C-STEM implant established a taper slip stem that not only worked with the bone cement mantle, but was also the first stem to demonstrate positive bone remodelling through an even proximal load transfer.2, 3
