primary hip prosthesis / cemented
TaperFit™ is a cemented, double-tapered, polished, collarless stem. It has been successfully used for over 17 years and has produced excellent clinical results(1). Designed to take advantage of the phenomenon of ‘cement creep’, it is based on biomechanical principles proven in over 40years of clinical use(2).
The TaperFit™ femoral prosthesis incorporates an extended lateral shoulder designed to enhance rotational stability and cement pressurisation. The elliptical hole on the shoulder of the stem enables the use of a dedicated introducer to improve the accuracy of stem insertion and alignment within the cement mantle, which is a critical factor in the long-term success of cemented total hip replacement
