Description

The EMERGENCE cemented femoral stem has been designed following the Charnley-Kerboull experience.

EVOLUTIS wished to simplify its use on a everyday basis and changed the original neck management system (combination of length and intra-medullar volume) to a more simple homothetic neck length system: each of the 7 stem sizes has its own neck length. The neck increment between each stem equals to 2mm.
