Division: Hip Reconstruction
The proprietary POROCOAT Porous Coating has been unchanged in structure since its introduction in 1977. It is composed of commercially pure titanium sintered metal beads,that allow bone to affix biologically into the porous coating. It has a pore size of 250 microns in average, which is documented in a laboratory study1 to be within the beneficial size range for penetration of bone tissue. The high coefficient of friction is designed to enhance the ‘scratch-fit’ and initial stability of the PINNACLE® acetabular cup.
