The GLOBAL CAP Shoulder System is a bone-preserving resurfacing implant which is an option for patients with degenerative arthritis.  

The GLOBAL CAP CTA System is a bone-preserving humeral resurfacing solution for patients with early stage cuff tear arthropathy. The GLOBAL CAP CTA System was designed with an extended superior lateral humeral head that is designed to stabilize the joint and produce a low coefficient of friction at the interface with the acromion.

  Features Benefits
Increased Area of Superolateral Articulation
  • Based on the GLOBAL ADVANTAGE and GLOBAL AP CTA Systems’ humeral heads, the GLOBAL CAP CTA System, has an increased area of superolateral articulation and internal countouring which assists fixation to minimise creep from implant micromotion which is designed to help reduce pain and optimise joint stability.
  • GLOBAL CAP CTA Implant geometry compensates for superior humeral head migration to help restore joint stability and range of motion.
  • Undersurface of the head and proximal portion of the central stem are surface-treated with DUOFIX Hydroxyapatite Coating on POROCOAT Porous Coating.
Humeral Resection Guide
  • Creates a continuous surface to support GLOBAL CAP CTA Shoulder superolateral flange.
