The SUMMIT Tapered Hip System is an advanced version of the tapered stem geometry philosophy. It was designed and launched in 2001. Its fixation is the foundation of long-term clinical success3, a biocompatible titanium alloy, combined with POROCOAT Porous Coating and underlying radial ZTT™ macro texture, creates a surface that enhances initial stability and biologic in-growth.3,7
The SUMMIT stem is also available with DUOFIX HA coating, which combines the clinically proven fixation of POROCOAT Porous Coating with the potential benefits of hydroxyapatite (HA) coating 8,9,10.
