Description

Anthropomorphic data, constructed from CT scans of male and female femurs, was used to determine optimal stem design and AP growth. A 12 degree proximal taper (1) provides inherent fixation and rotational stability through increased surface area contact with cortical bone structures. A 4 degree distal taper (2) reduces the possibility of stress shielding and helps account for proximal/distal mismatch.
