Tailored to any surgical approach.
Because every approach is different and so is every hip.
Every surgeon’s philosophy to hip arthroplasty is unique. The Linear is a versatile hip system that incorporates a reduced lateral shoulder, proximal fixation and reduced distal geometry. In combination, these design features provide an inherently stable and ideal implant for multiple surgical approaches to total hip arthroplasty.
The Linear Hip incorporates a reduced proximal lateral shoulder, which facilitates the implantation of the Linear hip and avoids varus implant positioning.
The Linear Hip features a 6° proximal A/P taper in addition to DJO Surgical proprietary porous coating to provide a locking, inherently stable proximal fit. The proximal, tapered wedge shaped design provides a metaphyseal fit with excellent clinical results(1). In addition the 6° proximal taper combined with reduced distal geometry will make for a more ideal fit in femurs with proximal to distal mismatched anatomy.
The Linear has a tapered distal stem design that helps reduce implant stiffness which can reduce the incidence of thigh pain. In addition the reduced distal geometry facilitates the implantation of the Linear hip from a variety of surgical approaches, including the direct anterior approach. This Reduced distal geometry will also facilitate proper metaphyseal fit and avoid distal hang up in Dorr Type A femurs(2).Polished reduced neck geometry provides maximum range of motion with minimum wear.
