Press-fit fixation with circular segmental rows of teeth at the cup equator
Metal casing with holes for optional additional screw fixation
Medioventral recess for a wider range of motion and to protect the psoas tendon and femoral nerve1
Optional anti-luxation UHMWPE insert
Polyethylene inserts in standard UHMWPE and X-LINKed UHMWPE
The UHMWPE inserts are available in standard and anti-luxation versions. Both versions offer five adjustable rotation positions, and this permits individual alignment to suit the specific hip situation.
For enhanced secondary stability, the LINK T.O.P. II Acetabular Cup System with osteoconductive HX calcium phosphate coating (CaP) is available.2, 3
Years of experience with successful implant systems and fixation concepts plus state-of-the-art material and coating technologies were applied in the the design of the Link T.O.P. II Acetabular Cup System.
The medioventral recess serves to protect the femoral nerve and psoas tendon, while allowing a greater range of motion.1
