Features & Benefits


Features Benefits
Extensive experience
  • Developed as a result of decades of experience in knee and hip prosthetics
  • Over 40,000 implanted PRODISC-L prostheses since 1990
  • Proven clinical outcome with class I evidence of randomized controlled clinical studies published
  • Polyethylene inlays in conjunction with cobalt-chromium-molybdenum plates have demonstrated outstanding abrasion behaviour in knee, hip and spinal prosthetics for several decades
Motion preservation
  • Retention of the physiological range of motion for flexion/extension, rotation and lateral inclination
  • Restoration of the height of the relevant segment, anatomical balance, and the stability of the spinal column
  • Guided, controlled motion limits the load on facet joints
  • Discharges neighbouring segments from overload
Good anatomical fit
  • The size of the implant, the lordosis angle and the height of the prosthesis can be interchanged to suit patient anatomy
  • Anatomical design of the implant plates
Superior fixation
  • Central keels and spikes provide primary fixation
  • Porous titanium coated implant plates promote bony ongrowth
Minimally invasive access and simple surgical technique

The instruments are simple and safe to handle:

  • Narrow, indicated instruments allow short, minimally invasive surgery and therefore earlier patient mobilization
  • Trial implants with adjustable stop to prevent excessive posterior positioning
  • The keel bed is prepared while the chisel is safely guided over the trial implant
  • The implant is guided into proper position via the chisel cut
  • Orientation at the midline for precise implanting
Please refer to the surgical technique guide or package inserts if included for a complete list of indications, contraindications, precautions and warnings. For further information on DePuy Synthes Products, please contact your local DePuy Synthes Representative .
