Smith & Nephew is bringing its POLARCUP Dual Mobility Hip System to the US.
It’s been implanted in Europe and other places outside the U.S. for over a decade, and the company says that the implant can deliver lower wear and dislocation rates when compared to competing devices.
The system is specifically designed to address the challenges of treating patients – in both primary and revision cases – who are susceptible to dislocation and need enhanced stability. Backed by 10 years of clinical history in Europe and other markets outside the US, the POLARCUP System allows surgeons to implant a smaller, constrained femoral component within a larger, anatomically sized polyethylene head, thus providing greater stability by increasing range of motion and jump distance.
