DePuy Synthes Trauma announces that it is launching the new Radial Head Prosthesis System for primary and revision joint replacement of the radial head to restore joint function. The modularity of the system – 24 heads and 10 stems allowing for 240 possible implant combinations – enables surgeons to restore the appropriate height, which may aid in elbow stability. The side-loading capability facilitates in-situ insertion and assembly, which may allow for a smaller incision than a top-loading device, while the stem texture ensures a uniform press fit in the radial canal. The system also provides an integrated connection screw to facilitate assembly, along with simple instrumentation.
