Total Shoulder Replacement and Anatomical Shoulder™ System.

Traditionally, patients undergoing shoulder reconstruction faced two postoperative tasks. First, they had to let the shoulder tissues recover, as would be expected. Then they had to adapt to anatomical changes imposed by a first- or second-generation implant that offered nothing more than an approximate fit.

With the modular Anatomical Shoulder™ System, the shoulder implant can be tailored to each patient’s individual anatomy. This allows a more advanced rehabilitation and an expanded radius of movement while placing fewer demands on the soft tissues and on the anchoring of the prosthesis.

The surgeon uses a simple operating technique that places fewer limiting factors on the success of the surgery. The design of the Anatomical Shoulder prosthesis truly sets the new standard for third-generation shoulder arthroplasty.

Anatomical Shoulder™ Inverse/Reverse System.

The innovative Anatomical Shoulder Inverse/Reverse system, offers surgeons a complete Shoulder solution with the possibility to change a done hemi- and total shoulder arthroplasty with the current implanted cemented or press-fit stem into an inverse/reverse shoulder solution.

This design allows the surgeon the opportunity to revise a primary anatomical prosthesis to the inverse/reverse components, without the need for stem removal. Such revision might be necessary in the setting of irreparable rotator cuff tear. This greatly simplifies and shortens revision surgery since the need to remove a well-fixed stem is eliminated.
