Cemented implant for rapid postoperative mobilization2
Rapid postoperative mobilization
The cemented placement makes the hip prosthesis system particularly suitable for elderly patients for whom cementless placement is not a possibility. The direct stability of the stem and acetabular cup in the cement coating permits rapid postoperative mobilization of the patient. This, in turn, means shorter recovery times and shorter hospitalization for the patient.2 The 126° CCD angle was also chosen with elderly patients in mind. This reflects the physiological change of the angle with increasing age.2
In combination with the LINK IP Polyethylene Acetabular Cup, LINK Lubinus Polyethylene Acetabular Cup, or the LINK Vario Cup, this system offers outstanding cemented hip replacement.
Physiological force transmission
The stem, which is made of a cobalt chrome alloy, has a simple but clinically proven design.1 Wide, rounded surfaces on the medial and lateral side serve to protect the cement bed. The large prosthesis collar enables proximal, bioharmonic force transmission. The collar counteracts sintering of the stem.3
Cost-effective stem system
The Lubinus Classic Plus Total Hip System is in a class of its own. It combines the practical and economic advantages of a modern standard system with the high material and processing quality for which LINK has been known for over 50 years.
